Art Description | Geometric Form: Hexagonal Cubes in Origami

 

This original sculpture was created using my self-taught base fold and requires no adhesives to construct. The design and form are spawned from assembling 24 3x3x3 "Hexagonal" cubes that both intersect and sit parallel to one another. This specific artwork contains more than 2,500 sheets of hand folded 3" square paper. Upon completion I applied by hand a polyacrylic protective enamel paint to reinforce an already sturdy design. A gold overcoat gives the piece a monochromatic metallic finish.

This Original Origami Sculpture was created using my self taught interlocking base fold that requires no adhesives and contains 2,496 sheets of hand folded paper. This design contains the most volume and in my opinion is one of my most aesthetically pleasing designs that I have created to date. The form consists of 8 triangular planes that wrap around a cubic variation that is structured in the center. Every triangular face is identical and this artwork is symmetrical from all 6 surfaces, 12 edges, and 8 corners. A gold overcoat gives the sculpture a monochromatic metallic finish.

This geometric sculpture contains approximately 2,900 sheets of hand folded paper and requires no adhesive. Both the design and base fold are original, organic, and self taught. The design is a mirrored image rotated 180 degrees when cut in half one way and a complete mirrored image when viewed another. This piece is most recent to date and truly a favorite. Due to the nature of my mathematical approach to these sculptures the final product is more of a result and surprise than a preconceived specific geometric form....And is it just me or do you see an organic being including a face?

This geometric sculpture contains 2,560 sheets of hand folded 3" square paper and requires no adhesives. The design is based upon a smaller sculpture with the volume of 32 cubes that both intersect and sit parallel to each other in a rotating manner. This artwork is created by transforming each single cube into a consistent 3x3 cubic variation which creates a complex form filled with depth and negative space. The design and base fold are both original and self taught, and the sculpture is symmetrical and essentially a mirrored image when cut in half from several angles. Upon completion I applied by hand a clear polyacrylic enamel paint to reinforce an already structurally solid sculpture. A gold overcoat gives the piece a monochromatic metallic finish.

This geometric origami sculpture contains over 2,000 sheets of hand folded paper and requires no adhesives. I have hollowed out the inside and left each of the 6 surfaces exposed allowing you to see through the piece. Gold paint gives the piece a metallic and monochromatic finish placing more emphasis on the design rather than the paper.

About Vance Houston

Vance Houston is a 26 year old Sculptural Origami Artist from Reno, NV. All of his featured works were sculpted with his self created interlocking base fold which creates a structural integrity that is incomparable with other base-folds. No adhesives were used in the construction of these 3-dimensional geometric sculptures.

Artist Statement:
All of these sculptures are technically Origami but I refer to my work as Paper Engineering. 

Origami vs. Paper Engineering
Origami is the art of paper folding. Once the paper is folded you have a finished product that is usually representational of something that actually exists, such as a crane or a turtle. To me the process of my art is at odds with this common perception of traditional Origami. In Paper Engineering folding thousands of sheets of paper is just the beginning. The real challenge and time exists in physically assembling these pieces together. Through a process of weaving the individual sheets become suspended off of one another. This results in organic designs based upon uniform geometry created through a process of symmetry and repetition. It truly is hands on mathematics. 

Creating these sculptures begins with a formula on how to mathematically approach a more simple geometric form and allow it to expand in complexity through the consistent application of math that is unrelated to what the sculpture looks like and directly related to a process of symmetry, rotation, repetition, and mirrored images. 

In a sense I know how I am going to build a specific design based not upon what I want or think the sculpture should look like but rather by using mathematical principles related to how the geometry varies. Due to the nature of this mathematical approach to these sculptures the final product is more of a result and surprise than a preconceived geometric form. This gives you the blueprint for creating sculptures that have a concrete and yet visually unknown solution.  This allows my work to continually evolve, making my sculptures more complex creates an exponentially increasing amount of potential designs.
