Kate Colin works with paper to create handmade sculptural lighting. She is interested in variations of light, colour and geometric form and uses a range of intricate paper folding techniques to explore how they interact with one another.
Fascinated by how the slightest variation of angle or fold can completely alter the final structural form, her practice is an experimental process and constantly evolving. Every piece is unique and when illuminated, the appearance of each is radically transformed: folds, creases and angles become emphasised while an intensity of colour is brilliantly revealed.
