|Folds in Space
By Rein Nomm
The objects depicted in my "Folds in Space" series now exist only as photographs. To create them, I took various types of paper (copier paper, paper towels, color-coated and metallic coated papers), both full sheets and cut strips, and glued them into various shapes. I then lit them and photographed them against a black or white background. I took the resulting images and mirrored them onto themselves. Many of these images have a classical or mathematical elegance and some of them serendipitously have taken on a representational quality.
