Chiral: Projection and Paper Sculpture

This art in motion was premiered at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei, Taiwan from June 15th to 18th 2010 as part of the Tripolar Exhibition.  See how the projection and paper sculpture produce visually stunning animation that can only be attained using a 3D CGI software.
