Origami Folding on a Monumental Scale
I spent the latter part of last year folding paper and during the research process have started to investigate increasing the scale of my work. These are pictures of one of my paper sculptures. It has been exhibited at Minnie Weisz Studio and is due to transfer to Birmingham in February, but I will have to increase the scale further for the new venue. The fold the sculpture is based on is a miura-ori fold. This was invented as a paper map fold in 1970 but has since been employed in designing airbags and satellites.
