Lilith Yu

This artwork explores the expansion from 2D to 3D.

This artwork is evolved from the illustration of Four of Wands in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. I explored different materials and techniques to expand this image into 3D form throughout the year, making different models in plastic, plaster and ceramic. In the end, I made the decision to use the basic form of a 2D image which is paper. I chose a specific design of origami that is repeatable as a basic unit and created this work using more than 500 units. When grouped together, this design has a sense of organic expansion and growth alongside its man-made white colour and sharp edges. It is both soft and structural, allowing me to manipulate and form it into an installation that seems to be changing and evolving on its own.
