Paper Crease and Balance

This is a relationship study of the inner crease and outer shape, and the balance and motion of a piece of paper. It looks at the paper's change of posture as it holds itself in various positions. While some crumpled paper may only achieve 3 to 4 different balancing position, others may hold up to 12 different positions.
