This weeks post is centred around origami as a means to representing images in more than two dimensions. here are two examples of printed tissue that have been folded so that they stand off the surface.

In 2015 I started work for the V&A’s Inspired By 2016, but ran out of steam. This time I want to get a bit more of a head start, as I have more prosaic inspiration. Read the rest of this entry »
