Rising

This contemporary, modular, direct, paper sculpture is part of a bird-life themed series."Rising" is inspired by the wing form and soaring flight of birds. This paper sculpture is constructed only of hand cut, hand folded, archival color, inkjet paper modules, recycled magazine paper and Ph neutral glue. There are approximately 3300 triangular double-pocket, double point modules of paper linked together. This is an ancient Chinese paper folding technique called "Zhe Zhi." The architecture of folded, linked and glued paper units creates a very strong and durable sculpture medium which permits direct paper sculpting. The science of topology dictates the slope and curve of the surface by the number of points linked in a circumference. Archival paper is acid free,color stable, and generally used as legal substrate for documentation and suitable to last a minimum of 100 years.
