Exhibited in 2014 Taipei Free Art Fair, Huashan1914, Taipei
Every pattern has its ordinary and imaginary movements.
The series is derived from the exercise—the hybrids of digital drawing & material paper, of logical coding & body movement.


“ Folding is blooming.
Paper captures the pattern of gestures from both hands & flowers.”





Nature presents various kind of living & moving patterns.

Every pattern has its imaginary movement. I observe, imitate and deliver the fascinating movements inspiring from nature. Started from the idea of repetitive creating through coding and folding, I made paper pieces with the inspiring creatures.




Both paper folding and Processing coding have qualities related to regulation—in a sense of movement—with repetitive patterns and logical disciplines.

The notion lead to the exercises of the folding & unfolding origami pieces in following directions:

Folding is blooming. Paper captures the pattern of gestures from both hands & flowers.
Folding creates continuous movements. To fold is to shape, to expand, to contain & to sustain.
