Representation of real world objects is the result of the passive observations that forms the paradigm for reality. If this statement is a bit hard to digest, you can simply refer to isomorphism; the mathematical term, which relates to the use of insights from one phenomenon to another. Paper folding art too has taken inspiration from this concept and the design here showcases two kinetic sculptures that take the same shape, but are of different sizes.
It is the biodegradable nature of paper that makes it our concern here at Ecofriend. Whats intriguing about this particular folding art form, is that when the holder rotates the smaller paper sculpture, there is an interactive movement in the larger one, making them responsive to the movements of the user’s gestures.
The artist focuses on playing with the geometry of paper by folding randomly, coming up with various shapes that can possibly be made from a tabloid size sheet of paper. Computer graphics has enabled the artist to further explore more designs and shapes, and, also enabled the inclusion of better precision. In fact, it’s not just about what’s contemporary and belongs to our generation, but it also has its roots in the traditional art of paper folding.
While for art lovers, the paper folding sculptures may be a visual delight, when it comes to environmentalists; they might be a little aversive to the idea, as pictures show that the artist has used fresh sheets of paper and not old wasted or recycled paper.
