The body of work in my thesis project titled Folded Mystery are the metaphors for how

we exchange knowledge, how perception widens our perspective, and how observation deepens

our understanding of the reality in which we live. I seek works of art that activate once the

viewer is involved. Folded Mystery is about challenging viewers' perception of multi-perception embodiment through 2D and 3D drawings, sculptural paintings, and installations that focus on the interaction of geometric abstract forms, colors, reflective objects and layering grid-like materials in space.
