ORIGAMI AS A FORMAL LANGUAGE
This project explores the self-replicant formal languages and their consequences for form and experiences. In the first phase, a series of patterns and their folding rules are generated through origami language. Analogical form making is particularly used to create haptic perception to the certain forms. In the second phase, highly complex forms are analyzed in a computational platform. Instead of physical attributes, their haptic behaviors are digitally modeled, which enables studies to understand the mathematical relationship between the pattern and the form. In the final phase, hierarchical relations are established between the pattern manipulations and final forms in order to explore how the complexity changes with the rules.
