Each of the larger format Paperfolds begins with creating a pattern similar to a moiré or constructive interference pattern. A sheet of drafting film is placed over the pattern with deep lines scored on both sides with an etching needle. Each line is then meticulously hand-folded before the film is pushed and nurtured into its final form.
‘I enjoy the discipline that’s required in the making of each folded surface. I find the creative process akin to a form of meditation and I am totally absorbed for hours at a time. There is always an element of surprise that I find hugely rewarding when a final relief form emerges. Each form essentially combines my personal expression and making with the logical rationale of geometry’.
