Exhibition piece in progress

dragon helix, work in progress

I’ve been working on this piece for the last month or so; it’s a huge version of my Dragon Helix design.

I first started folding this pattern years ago, creating a 6 meter long strip of folded paper for it. Sadly it was from Tyvek, which turned out to be too soft to fold properly, and the entire thing was a loss. Ever since then I have wanted to fold it correctly, and realize it in full form.

This work will be on display at the Salon Resonance[s], a large art exhibition in Strasbourg, France on November 9-12 of this year. It will be at least 10 meters long for the exhibition space, potentially longer. I just hope my hands will hold out! It’s been more than a kilometer of creasing done so far.

I enjoy playing with my art while folding; here’s a photo of me that I just had to share with everyone. It seems to be a trend for me these days to always wear my origami on my head…
