Over 3,500 triangles form the Eva Black 'Folded' piece, making it anything but square. The piece began as LA-based freelance designer started collecting paper. The collection grew into this amazing masterpiece. The sources of the paper vary from old artworks and maps to paperbags. Each has a story working in cohesion to create colorful contrast in their diverse textures. As paper turns to digital, this medium is used less and less. Black takes these discarded stories and repurposes them into this eye-catching piece.
This adventure into origami could put any attempt at a small creature to shame. Black has clearly spent countless hours investing time and love into this project, folding each paper with precision. This is clear, as the huge installation covers the space as a blanket would.
