Textile art pieces and paper prototypes using origami, curved pleating and wet folding techniques, that are modular and kinetic in nature.

CHEVRON

With a brilliant striped woven fabric sourced from Material For The Arts at Long Island City, New York, Chevron is a sample of kinetic fabric origami. The warp as well as weft in the fabric are LDPE, and the horizontal gradient of colors, when folded vertically & diagonally, form an interesting zig-zag herringbone pattern. The piece can be compressed and expanded horizontally, and sculpted into different forms as illustrated.

LOZENGE

A parametric origami structure with Diagonal mountain folds and Vertical valley folds folded and stitched using pin tucks to hold a sturdy structure that can be modified based on function and application. Poly-canvas material is used to make the web of lozenges, among one of the many fabric explorations of a similar structure.

ACCORDION

Pleated fabric structure inspired from the Accordion instrument, starting with basic mountain and valley folds. A step like impression is given with a complete line of diagonal mountain folds, followed by a line of diagonal valley folds - on top and bottom. Multiple forms can be obtained by experimenting with the same base structure.

DUSK

A make-shift lamp made with Chevron plastic woven sample. It was an interesting experiment with light, that affected the colour, shadow, and gradient level of the structure. It gives the impression of the sun going down from noon until dusk.
