Paper & Related Arts

This current series of kinetic sculptural artworks are the result of my research and experimentation with complex pleat-and-twist folds and tessellations. They are related to and combined with a variety of book and paper arts philosophies including traditional and innovative building and binding techniques. Additionally, origami and pop up architecture influences are expressed through the use of conventional and unorthodox materials.

I am indebted to Japanese mathematician Shuzo Fujimoto Sensei for graciously providing me with copies of his three seminal out of print origami books. His contributions, written over 20 years ago, were far ahead of others in this field of study. I became intrigued with the potential of applying his concepts in unique ways.
