Google Exhibition

“Making Space” exhibition at Google, Venice CA. Photos © IFF Archive.

On February 10, 2014, the IFF and friends made a field trip to Google’s office in Venice, CA, to visit our exhibition there. Titled “Making Space” the exhibit showcased works developed at the IFF during our Making Space mathematics and aesthetics project in 2013. Included in the Google show – which finished its run in late February 2014 – were large-scale sculptures of business card origami, plus tiny beaded Platonic solids, geometric bamboo stick-things, and other enigmatic spatial structures. The pieces looked terrific in the Google space and we thank program manager Max Maxwell for spearheading Google Venice’s innovative arts program. Works featured in the exhibition were by Jake Dotson, Jesse Dotson, Christina Simons, David Orozco, Kathryn Harris, Corrine Cascioppo and Margaret Wertheim. The business card origami sculptures on display built on and extended original research by engineer Dr. Jeannine Mosely, a pioneer of mathematical paper-folding or origami sekkei.
