Under the project title “Infinity” I designed two series of four, respectively five works. The aim of my artistic work was to design a series of three-dimensional sculptures made of paper, dealing with the theme of “infinity”. My plan was to combine abstract forms into complex sculptures, (ring-shaped, for example,) in such a way as to create the impression of infinite cycles. I also wanted to create the illusion of movement through the interplay of light and shadow, and by changing the viewer’s angle of vision.
