Ritual Dance

The interactive sculptural form was inspired by a ghost-summoning ritual performed by children in Jacek Dukaj’s science fiction novel Extensa. The simultaneously eerie and playful character of the story inspired me to produce a large-scale origami toy which I covered with layers of loose drawings depicting the dancers over time. The project was finalized with a performance of two people folding and infolding the object in a choreographed dance.
