Artist Werner Sun sees patterns in everyday life. A physics graduate, Sun works as a research associate at the Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education. His folded and collaged pieces are inspired by his background in experimental particle physics.
“I work with prints on paper that are folded into regular sculptural patterns, embroidered with thread, or layered in a collage. The underlying images are produced with a variety of techniques: drawing, photography, digital processing, and computer programming. Manipulating the paper causes the images on them to become systematically distorted, and when I document these works, I sometimes generate new images for further use. In some sense, these repeated algorithmic transformations mimic the creative process itself, in which artistic ideas are continuously refined and updated while they are being molded into physical objects.” – Werner Sun
