The initial prototypes set out to practically confirm two things, artistic intention and fabrication viability. Intertwined within our adventure into this deep exploration of material and geometry, was the underlying question: what is a fold?

The intention to print folds emerged very early on, the idea of embedding a stiffer material to form the fold planes into a flexible material as the hinge surface, afforded strength and scalability above other techniques.

The question was which method was most effective for prototyping? What methods could be applied in artistic production?

ORI* is an art-science research initiative by artist Matthew Gardiner, funded by the FWF PEEK Program and kindly supported by the Ars Electronica Futurelab. ORI* seeks to explore the natural language of origami and technology through artistic and scientific research.
