i've begun to stick to one shape in my net making for my 3-d objects, it seems ive grown fond of triangles and started to look into different ways i could create an interesting shape!
here is one of my favourite shapes i ended up coming across...

quick experiments

here i produced some 3-d paper objects based on an actual object here i chose a flower sort of theme to focus on and tried to get my paper to reflect this image...

today I experimented with 3-d forms again with paper, and tested out one of the less complex theories of a paper spring, by folding 2 strips of paper overlapping each other.

Rob Ryan..

Well it could be argued that Rob Ryan's artwork is not really relevant duting this project because his final out comes are not in 3-d form but i am a really big fan of his work and i'm going to class it as 'paper engineering'.
the amount of detail and time he puts into each of his pieces is absolutely increadible!

He definately inspires me and is one of my favourite artist i've come across in the past years.

more attempts at paper folding..

after one of my workshops with Richard Sweeney, showing us different techniques on how to fold paper and create different 3-d objects, i started looking at curved folds to making a rippled effect..

workshop attempts number one!

Here is some of my work I produced in the workshop with Richard Sweeney and outside of the workshop..

I tried a varied range of different techniques of paper folding taught by Richard Sweeney including straight line folding with scores, and curved ones.

Richard Sweeney..

So during this new project we've been lucky enough to have
guest artist Richard Sweeney working with us
in a few workshops to get us going with exploring different techniques of folding paper.

I have been looking at a lot of Richard Sweeney's work and really admire it. It's so beautiful on how sculpted and abstract it looks.
