Photo Sculpture

Clockwise from upper left: I’m Not Doing What I Think I’m Doing, the Garden, the Volcano in the Back Yard, Traces, Monolith, , Glacier I (rephotographed), and Husk.

L. Mahadevan, Ph.D. explains the complex relationship between form and function in nature, especially the underlying geometry present in many biological structures and processes. Many scientific disciplines use the art of folding, or origami, to represent this relationship, with numerous applications from the unfurling of a leaf or a solar sail to the micro-structure of DNA.

These sculptural objects adapt the mechanics of folding to transform flat photographs into 3 dimensions, mimicking natural forms and observed plant growth patterns.
