A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|Gallery of Macromodular Sculpture
sculptures are second generation modular designs built by
combining complete first generation modular assemblies
into larger structures either with, or without, the use
of joining or separating pieces.
My macromodular sculptures are intended to be partnership art, a concept that expresses the partnership that often exists in origami/paperfolding between the designer, who first conceptualises and defines the design, and the folder, who realises one expression of it at one particular point in time, so that both contribute in equal partnership to the finished work.
Many of these designs are explained in my book Building with Butterflies.
Further details of the designs pictured below can be found here.
