3rd Year D'arcy Thompson Exhibition/Project
This year was D'arcy Thompson's 150th Anniversary so the University of Dundee and the University of St Andrews were running a collaborative project to celebrate this. They were holding various events over 2010 to mark his anniversary and 3rd Year Illustration's exhibition was one of them. During my research on D'Arcy Thompson i can across various interesting things about his work. I was more interested in the mathematical size of D'Arcy so decided to create a series of mathematical origami balls inspired by his work which can be seen above. Every single piece of the mathematical balls are from single sheets of folded paper which are all slotted together to create the final piece.
