PROJECT: Modular Origami

Modular origami is a paperfolding technique that uses multiple sheets of paper to create a larger and more complex structure than would not be possible using single-piece origami techniques. Each indvidual sheet is folded, and modules are assembled into a three-dimensional structure.

It takes 20 individual folded modules to create one of my pieces. I use heavy archival cardstock and each "center" has a beautiful bead that adds to the support of the structure. It takes about 3 days to make one piece.

Tom Balbo, the curator, approached me to make my origami out of Morgan paper. Both the red and green paper are made in Thailand from banana leaves.
