Origami research started with interest and gradually became a two years research project. Yi-Chin tried to find the gap that could form a research objective through folding practice and contextual review. In the beginning, she folded various structures to understand the principle and possibility of this craft. The research presented in a series of works about different origami modules and structuring methods. All the developed origami modules can build spacial structures and apply 2.5D pattern on the surface to mediated space dynamic.
During the exploration of origami application, Yi-Chin found out the studies of origami tube, which is based on Miura structure. Origami tube obtained the feature of original origami structure but also reinforced the structure itself by forming the tube system. She discovered that, the space created by joining two pieces of origami sheets provides a chance to develop a modular object. The characteristic of the modular object gives origami an opportunity to become a self-supported system.
The connection was one of the features of origami tube, and this feature triggers me to develop serials of modular objects based on origami structure. Yi-Chin added an extra self- supporting base to make the structure self-standing. In the end, I created a family of modular origami structures by form variation. Each shape is slightly different, and after the combination, the structures can function differently.
