How could some curious German words like “Kokolores” or “Papperlapapp” look like? Could they be loud or quiet? Could they fly? The answer gives my experimental paper. The work consists of some folded sheets of paper and a poster. The outside area of the sheets gives information about history of the words. With a cutter knife the user generates a 3-dimensional illustrated object of each sheet of paper. These objects pipe, fly, bang and make fun. They are manufactured only by simple sheets of paper. The sound or action the paper can do, explains the words to the user. To comprehend, you should follow the instructions on the poster step by step.
