Works with paper, Richard Sweeney starting out by experimenting with scoring and folding it in repetitive patterns, bringing in slight variations to form pieces that can then be manipulated to make different shapes. The scoring patterns are very simple, for example two curves repeated linearly across the page, and it is this idea of finding a system or a framework for the material to work that fascinates him.
