Folding, 2011

This video shows Heather Rasmussen's process of folding colored cardstock into shipping containers. A template was designed for cutting paper forms which could be folded into a scaled three-dimensional container. Each miniature container is to scale, at 1"=10', making the 2" and 4" containers into 20' and 40'. These containers were first used in the sculptural project "Pier J" from 2007. They were later used in the series "DestructConstruct" - photographs based on recreated sculptures of shipping container accidents.
