These limited-edition prints explore the concept of communicating words through folded shape, often juxtaposed with inked words. The prints show a complicated crease pattern, generated by a computational origami algorithm, that folds into the 3D shape of letters and other graphics. By itself, the crease pattern is a mysterious puzzle, but folding resolves it to recognizable a pattern. This exploration began with our Yes/No print (2011) in a collaboration with Sarah Stengle. See our more detailed description of that collaboration.
