Voronoi is an algorithm of partitioning a plane into regions while maintaining an equal distance and balance between each region. The configuration resembles many natural regions, indicating that there is still an operating pattern even in the seemingly ordinary spatial configuration. Voronoi Guess 2 displays the artist’s exploration of combining Voronoi partition and origami as he attempts to find out “if there exists an inscribed circle within each polygon derived from Voronoi partition.” The attempt is simultaneously a hypothesis as well as an experiment and a verification because the existence of inscribed circles within polygons will determine whether it is possible to perform voronoi partition through origami.
In an era of rapid technological development and massive data, is there a pattern dictating our existence, our ordinary life and the relationships between people? Many people have ventured their guesses; however, some guesses are based on intuition and are still difficult to prove. Therefore, the artist hopes to prompt discussions about these guesses through mathematical and origami observation and experience. Moreover, the work reflects how the world we dwell in is itself filled with in numerous guesses; perhaps we are precisely the underlying pattern that cannot be proven.
The work of Voronoi Guess 2 is composed of 137 polygon origamis, each origami has different shape and formed by voronoi algorithm. In order to let these origamis to puzzle to whole 19 side of polygon very exactly and precisely, every origami folding diagram need consider the compensation in the size design. And also need very carefully in folding the origami by hands. People can put one origami in the sense area to activate the image projecting on the origami. Because of using light-surface paper to make origami, when the light projected on the origami, it reflects the effect like stained glass.
