Intro
Foldings, in the physical sense the action of horizontal forces on a surface by bending or buckling it vertically in alternating directions and compressing it in a very small space.

Artist list

Elisabeth Krampe
Elisabeth Krampe turns the principle of folding into an art form, abstract and constructive, always newly thought out, lively, and surprising. In her necklaces and hoop objects, artistic folding patterns are repeated a hundred times, become a sequence, and join together to form Bodies. 

Delicate paper membranes grind into pliable, soft structures; harder material defends its forms and edges, locks itself against the unifying union, and remains visible in its multipartite nature. The repetition is apparently brought into Infinitely heightened when the shapes combine to form a round without beginning and end. By invisibly threading them onto a stretchable spiral wire, the folding elements can be and allow the cervical collar to be put on without difficulty, without damaging the structure destroy. Elisabeth Krampe's constructive folding objects are also wearable jewellery.
