Named “Pastelito”, after the typical Argentinean pastry, this installation is the result of a contest to be a part of the “Muestra #4” (Event #4) at the gallery MONOAMBIENTE, cured by Martín Huberman and “off the record” group . Part their work consists of the prototyping of modular systems, which they use to create structures that transform the space in different ways. Under this logic, “Pastelito” shows the exploration of the origami technique applied to the module of a commercial size of paper; exploiting the possibilities of both the paper and the module as building materials. The repetition and interaction between these modules resulted in an extensive mesh made out of around 8,000 pieces of hand-folded paper. This mesh presents a changing behavior which vistors took advantage of to interact with the space inside the gallery.
