Mark Schenk - 'Fade to white'

All pictures are of the same object: a plastic sheet folded using the Miura-ori pattern. For my PhD I'm investigating the mechanical properties of textured shell structures, where the local pattern introduces new global mechanical properties. Applications can for instance be found in morphing structures - these are structures that can change shape to adapt to external circumstances.
