to the Paper Penguin Project, my name is Guy Wooles and
I am an artist and designer from Penarth in Wales, UK.
The Paper Penguin project site was created in 1999 to
document and record the travels and experiences of Dennis
and his brothers and sisters.
There have been numerous penguin adventures including
Hong Kong, New York, Canada, Bristol Zoo and the North
Pole. All these ‘residencies’ have been compiled
and presented on the website that I created specifically
for this work in 1999. I was even interviewed by John
Peel about the project in 2003.
I would like to establish a network of ‘paper penguin’
residencies (not necessarily permanent) around the world
in locations of conservation, ecological or educational
interest, that will send back documentation and photographs.
The information of each penguin's experiences of the culture
and lifestyle of their location can then be published
on this website and hopefully used for educational purposes.
