The Story Behind DIY KIT

When the pandemic hit in 2020, I was struggling to recover from a car crash and traumatic brain injury which interrupted my career as an architect. I was in poor health and spirits, and needed to create forward momentum for my life.

 

I took to the basement of my home and just began. Began making; began exploring. I started creating 3-D paper geometries. Below are some of my early study models.

I've since made countless pieces of sculptural art.

 

Through all of my design exploration, I always come back to these early study models as they represent the essence of Folded Poetry.

 

Below is a sketch from April of 2020. From this design I have created Folded Poetry DIY Kits!

They are incredibly special to me as they share my experience from those early days of beginning Folded Poetry. 

 

My goal was nothing short of reimagining and reinventing my life.

 

Creating something completely original with one's own hands is not only a magical experience - it's good for the brain, and for the spirit. 

 

I'm proud to share this experience with you!
