Paper folds itself into a natural equilibrium form depending on its creases. These equilibria are poorly understood, especially for curved creases. We are exploring what shapes are possible in this genre of self-folding origami, with applications to deployable structures, manufacturing, and self-assembly. This transformation of flat paper into swirling surfaces creates sculpture that feels alive.

There is a surprisingly old history to curved origami sculpture, going back to the 1920s at the Bauhaus. Read our partial history focusing on the earliest known references.
