‘Coloured Fish’ – origami school of fish

Noah and his collection of origami fish coloured origami fishColoured Fish is an origami fish installation created by 11 year old Noah Casey. After being diagnosed with dyslexia, Noah wanted to raise awareness of the condition and began an art project of creating a school of origami fish. His campaign starts here at the Queensland Museum & Sciencentre…

In Noah’s words…

Every day I swim through a sea of words of which I can read, spell and write few.  I am Noah, I am 11 years old, I am a Creator/Artist, I am DYSLEXIC.

I made this art project about dyslexia to get people talking, to challenge the way people think about kids like me and to try to make things better for us at school.

This school of fish represents an average primary school in Australia with 840 pupils… most of the fish are made from old books because most kids in school can read, write and spell words. The coloured fish… are the dyslexic kids (10%)… and have been made by dyslexic kids from all over Australia. Please read our names and ages and find out what we are good at. We learn differently but if you give us a chance we can be fabulous.”

There are origami worksheets and recycled paper for visitors to fold their own fish.
