Jiangmei Wu uses mathematics, science, and engineering in creating art and design. Recently, she has been investigating relationships between geometry, surface texture, and computational algorithms, and using these to explore techniques for the art and science of paper folding. Her origami-inspired, large-scale installations have been exhibited across the United States, as well as in Italy, Netherlands, Canada, Japan, and Thailand, funded through the Indiana University New Frontiers in Arts and Humanities, College Arts and Humanities Institute and the National Science Foundation. In 2017, she won the American Mathematical Society’s award for the best artwork in the category of textile, sculpture, or other medium.
