Fold is life. From skin wrinkling to earth’s crust bending.
I am a paperfolder. I use folds, pleats, curvatures or wrinkles to shape a whole universe of unexpected abstract forms or poetic nature inspired plants and beings. It is often dealing with advanced geometrical patterns or subtle mechanical behaviors and I use my scientific background to study new means of expression. Folding is a fascinating and complex tree of techniques.
The art lies in the paper (kami: both paper and spirit in Japanese), with its simple form but its incredible balance between strength and fragility or transparency and opacity. This equilibrium point is my source for creativity and for truth. A language emerges from the creases memorized by the paper and is outlined by the light playing between the folds.
