“It is about observing and forming a dialogue with the circle. This is an exploration to find out the nature of the circle and what can be generated by simple folding and joining. It is about observation and paying attention to the symmetry of movement, allowing the forms and systems to develop, and they are always beautiful.”
“The technique is simply touching points and creasing; then using tape, glue, and bobby pins to bring the folded work together. There is no cutting or measuring. Knowing math is not necessary to fold circles; math functions are just some of the information generated in the process. My work is not about what I can do with the circle as much as to play with and discover the nature of what it is and what it will generate. Art and math are only two areas of demonstration about the implicate order inherent in the circle.”
