Through paperfolding (origami) tessellations, I enjoy exploring geometry and perceptions, trying to capture the infinite, questioning about space, time and reality.

Part of an exploration into the geometry of paperfolded tessellations and tilings.
The single sheet of paper is filled in with a tiling of creases, it "shrinks" while folding and pleating over itself, creating overlappings of layers. These, in turn, create an illusion of depth, by changing the transparency in the various areas of the completed, flat-folded form.
