My name is Eliza Redmann.
I'm an architect and sculptural artist based in Durham, NC.
I began Folded Poetry after a car accident and traumatic brain injury changed my life. I never imagined that my pandemic art project would turn into my full-time career.
Folded Poetry brings beauty and functionality to our everyday spaces.
The bedrock of this craft is the use of a small number of simple forms which can be arranged to create complex geometries. Simplicity is both the constraint and the strength of Folded Poetry.
Using form and shadow, this work pushes the boundaries of visual experience.
Simple yet perplexing, the viewer is challenged to reflect on the way they encounter the world.
Folded Poetry seeks unique design problems which present opportunity to broaden the horizon where functionality and art meet.

"Eliza knows her stuff! She asked us lots of insightful questions about the space where we wanted to place her work; she came up with some great alternatives in small maquettes, we brainstormed together discussing the variations and possible materials; and it all came together as a stellar, glowing wall sculpture!"
