This modular direct paper sculpture is part of an ocean-life series."Caracol" is Spanish for shell and is inspired by shell-like ocean creatures found along the Florida coast. It is constructed only of hand cut, hand folded, archival color, inkjet paper modules and Ph neutral glue.The base is black cast resin. There are approximately 1500 triangular double-pocket, double point modules of paper linked together. This is an ancient Chinese paper folding technique called "Zhe Zhi." The architecture of folded, linked and glued paper units creates a very strong and durable sculpture medium which permits direct paper sculpting. The science of topology dictates the slope and curve of the surface by the number of points linked in a circumference. Archival paper is acid-free,color stable, and generally used as legal substrate for documentation and suitable to last a minimum of 100 years.
