Chasing Shadows

chasing shadowschasing shadows_dWoven paper yarn fabric can be treated as a paper. I did Origami folding on the woven fabric. Folded lines create a series of beautiful shadows. It reminds me of my childhood game Kagefumi, chasing shadows.

紙糸で織った生地で折り紙。美しい陰影を生み出します。
連なる影、子供の頃の影踏み遊びを思い出します。
