Steampunk is a style that uses technology from the Victorian era and juxtaposes it alongside modern applications and materials. It appropriates materials for purposes that it was not initially designed or planned for.
This concept reflects the ability of paper to change size, shape and strength depending on the form it is in. This is the basis of origami and like the copper wire in the previous project, taking these materials beyond their original designed function can lead to new applications but also improvements to the material itself. The paper used in this project is inherently 2D however it is possible to transform it into 3D structures.
