Ben Parker Studio – Origami is an art form that in its purest state neither adds nor subtracts material but alters it in an almost alchemical process. I practice a branch of this discipline known as geometric origami, and primarily design tessellations, which are studies of how paper can be shaped to create complex patterns capable of an infinite number of repeated iterations. I create geometric origami artwork parallel to working as a freelance educator of the techniques.

Beware the power it possesses as you will not want to turn away.
