bamboo - light - paper

the technique of splitting and bending bamboo (through heat) allows for free design and construction of light objects and shadow casters. paper as a surface (folded, modular, ...) and bamboo as a line complement each other in creating structures of light and shadow. the material language of bamboo and paper is closely related to the form-finding.
