Emma visited the “Defibrillator Performance Arts Gallery” in Chicago with Joshua, where he took this photo of her.
It’s almost like a charmed stage set, with lovely highlights and shadows, the bow arch and the shadow profile of her, even the little puff of vapor. And so, I’ve rendered it as a Kirigami!
The flowing waters behind the pop-up form may evoke her feelings for the ongoing performance. Might this piece also try to infer his feelings (the photographer’s) for her?
This is my first use of skewed forms in a one-piece, right-angle pop-up (a Kirigami). Without the photo on the front, it looks like this.
The concept is shown by a simple design diagram, as the form is visualized when opened out flat. It would be so before doing the physical preparation for folding (that is, before cutting and scoring).
