Pleat. Photographic print. Richard Sweeney: A series of sculptures and photographic works produced using hand-pleated paper. Pleating gives structure to the sheet, while allowing flexibility, thus the pleated sheet can be bent and tensed into a variety of configurations, and alterations to the folding pattern result in the discovery of new forms.
