Twofold Light

Exhibited at Erin Stump Projects, Toronto, 2022.


Sean Davidson
The Twofold Light is part of Slanted/Enchanted, an exhibition that celebrates improvised production methods. On show at Erin Stump Projects during the 2022 DesignTO festival, the exhibition features objects from twenty artists around the world. The purpose of the show is for participants to engage in experimental crafts which may fall outside the traditional canon of their discipline.  

The Twofold Light explores the ancient art of paper folding using Tyvek, a synthetic sheet material. Unlike paper, which becomes more opaque when scored for folding, Tyvek becomes more transparent as its fibres are pressed together. The scoring technique used to create the crisp geometric form of the Twofold Light is repeated to cover every surface of the lamp, resulting in a mesmerizing luminescent pattern.
