The "palettes" series is made by folding several square sheets of colored paper, without cutting or glueing. It is called modular origami or unit origami. Each paper and its color is chosen in the market in correspondence with color palettes of the early personal computers and video-game consoles during the eighties (IBM, Commodore, Amstrad ou Nintendo). I did not make the colors. These are not applied on a surface. The color is the surface.
