Woven Tessellation is a textile collection inspired by traditional origami folding methods. The process of origami gives various ways to generate pattern and fold within itself, allowing the ability to expand and condense. This collection focuses on the different elements taken from origami repeat folds, with a highlight on pattern, crease and dimension. These pieces have been displayed through a collection of wall hangings and a motion video that captures the intricate detail of each woven piece and how they relate to different aspects of tessellation. Controlled manipulation of woven textile techniques have been used to demonstrate dimensional illusion and folding within design. The aim of this collection is to employ self-hold woven structures and showcase geometric representation, having a minimal colour scheme benefits this and helps create a strong dimensional contrast.
