Hi, I'm Rith!

(something like this,
in a nine-square grid)
Up explores the tectonic language of pleating and the material property of fabric.
The rigidity of the pattern is an interplay with the organic structure of fabric. The pleating patterns are
computationally generated to maximize the fabric tension and minimized material waste. A series of loops in
varied sizes hold the tension of the folded fabric, allowing in-between spaces for people to stand in and walk
around. The installation was part of the 2015 Illumination Festival in Rockport, MA.
Exhibited at Illumination Night Festival,
