Sliver Lecture Richard Sweeney May 28, 7pm
The potential of the flat surface as a means to create form and structure is an intriguing prospect. Modelling with a sheet of paper through hands-on
manipulation reveals shapes and volumes, which otherwise remain hidden within the flat plane. The action of folding is at once simple and complex- an intuitive action leading to the formation of a complex geometric form. A tactile approach to material investigation is essential in understanding the behaviour of the surface, the means by which it can be formed, and applied in a diverse range of artistic practices.
