Paper is my medium and paperfolding (origami) is my favorite technique. When I design a new artwork I avoid traditional origami bases. I prefer folds and constructions useless for most of paperfolders. I reduce number of folds, place folded lines in unusual configurations, do not rely on strict constructibility of folds and leave symmetry away. But I still depend on geometric structures. When I create, I move and push a piece of paper in my mind and I imagine folds and curved shapes resulting from the paper movement.
I blend rigorous and abstract geometric shapes with material and flexible pieces of folded paper into united forms. A spectator may admire spiral twisting around each other, arcs, convex and concave surfaces. Or 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.
I started from a cube. I broke every face of the cube along diagonals and rotated resulting halves by 180 degrees. Finally I replaced vertices of the cube by 3-fold spirals.
Resulting surfaces intersect and smoothly change from flat to twisted regions. And metallic paper add light and shine effects.
Flower-like regions of the artwork are actually 5-fold vertices of a polyhedron. The polyhedron is reflected in the artwork in a way that faces, edges and vertices correspond to different vortexes of spirals.
I was inspired by fold-and-cut problem (how to fold a sheet of paper, to get a given shape with a single cut).
The artwork is a modular origami object based on several modules. I place random irregular quadrilateral into a regular square shape of paper sheet. Then I solve fold-and-cut problem (but no actual cuts). The result is an irregular module with non-symmetric center part, different lengths and shapes of spirals. Finally I assemble randomly positioned modules into a regular structure of cube. The artwork presents balance between randomness of modules and order of the structure.
