Step into the world of Richard Sweeney, a world-renowned paper artist. Sweeney creates awe-inspiring sculptures purely out of paper and a system of folding techniques. In Fluid Forms, he shows the basic principles that are the foundation of his practice: the conceptual phase, in which he draws on natural and architectural forms; the categories of shapes that comprise his pieces; and the actual folding and pleating techniques, as well as recommended tools and paper types.
These ideas and strategies are useful for artists, architects, fashion designers, and anyone interested in transforming a humble piece of paper into a three-dimensional art form.
