an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifest in
drawing and three dimensional forms. I use my engineering skills to create kinetic sculpture which have
led to collaborations with scientists at University of Michigan. We work on the nanoscale, translating
paper structures to micro folds. Our investigations extend to visualizing cellular division and solar cell
development. Researchers see paper engineering as a metaphor for scientific principles; I see their inquiry
as a basis for artistic inspiration. In my studio I am a collaborator, explorer and inventor. I begin with a
system of folding and at a particular moment the material takes over. Guided by wonder, my work is
