Invited to the University of Calgary EVDS by Jason Johnson for a Taylor Seminar, large-scale material studies into self-enclosing curved folds were studied. 

One result was a large porous object made of curved sheet metal and polyethylene that was self-supporting. Another was a series of pods that emitted atonal musical pitches. As they were brought together and connected via magnets, their tones would begin to average into a melodious chord.
