about Folded Light Art + Design
Jiangmei Wu is a tenured associate professor at Indiana University in the United States. She is an interdisciplinary scholar, making art and design projects involving mathematics, science, and engineering. Recently, she has been investigating the relationship between geometry, surface texture, computational algorithms, and making techniques in the art and science of paper folding. Her origami-inspired, large-scale installations have been exhibited in the cities across the United States as well as in China, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, and Thailand. In 2017, she won the American Mathematical Society’s award for best artwork in the category of textile, sculpture, or other media. She also holds three US patents (two granted and one pending) for her innovative design techniques. Her academic papers have been published in several leading research journals in the field of interior design and mathematical art. In addition to more than ten years of experience teaching art and design, Professor Wu has a decade of professional experience in graphic design and human-computer interface design.
