On Friday June 14 and Saturday June 15, Dr Jeannine Mosely will be in residence at the IFF.
Mosely’s pioneering work on business card origami was a major inspiration for the IFF’s current exhibition Making Space. Those interested in discussing this unique, mathematically inflected art form are invited to drop by for impromptu discussions with and demonstrations by Dr. Mosely.
Dr. Jeannine Mosely is a software engineer who specializes in geometric visualizations. Since the early 1990’s she has been a pioneering practitioner in the field of technical folding or origami sekkei and has been the leading force in the development of business card origami. From 1997-2005, Mosely spearheaded a national US effort to construct a Level Three model of the famous three-dimensional fractal known as the Menger Sponge out of 66,000 business cards. In 2005 she worked with the Wooster School District in Massachusettes to design and build a model of the Wooster Union Train Station from 60,000 cards, and in 2012 she led an effort at the University of Southern California Libraries (along with IFF Director Margaret Wertheim) to construct a Level Three model of the Mosely Snowflake Fractal. Dr. Mosely is also a pioneer in the science of curved paper folding.
