Paper is my medium and paperfolding is my favorite technique. I prefer folds and constructions useless for most of paperfolders. I reduce number of folds, place folded lines in unusual configurations and leave symmetry away. But I still depend on geometric structures. I push a piece of paper in my mind and I imagine folds and shapes resulting from the paper movement.
I blend rigorous and abstract geometric shapes with material and flexible pieces of folded paper. A spectator may admire spiral twisting around each other, arcs, convex and concave surfaces. Or explore deeper a geometric structure. Internal beauty of shapes derived from flat piece of paper and geometric concepts may be discovered only if the artwork is reinterpreted again.

Crease pattern of this work is similar to the pattern on the gothic ceiling of the Minster in Bern, Switzerland. And it is a bridge between so different objects.

I use flexible pieces of folded paper into united forms to admire convex and concave surfaces and explore deeper a geometric structure. Shapes derived from flat piece of paper and geometric concepts begin their independent life. Their internal beauty may be discovered only if the artwork is reinterpreted again.
Minimum Rose Change Time

Paper
The artwork is a multi-piece object from dark blue paper painted in not regular way. Each sheet of paper is folded only three times. This work is a part of the study on the minimal folding – the lowest number of creases necessary to fold an interesting object.
