EKA Textile Department presents:
‘Folding as a Language of Design’

Paul Jackson’s ZOOM lecture on THIS LINK

The presentation will describe how folding is used by designers and how it can play an important role in our sustainable future.

“All designers fold. That is, all designers fold, crease, bend, pleat, wrinkle, drape, twist and knot flat, 2-D materials to create 3-D forms. This process of transformation from 2-D to 3-D is one of the most fundamental and common languages of design, yet it is also one of the least understood.” P.J.

Paul Jackson has been a professional paper artist, designer writer and educator for almost 40-years.  He has been a folding consultant for Nike, Disney, Tetra Pak and many other companies, taught folding as a language of design in 80 Schools of Design in 11 countries, written more than 40 books and exhibited his artworks worldwide.  He says, ‘It’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it.’
