This item is one of four in the Origami series that explores ideas about light and color as seen through a glass prism. Littleton's goal was to make "a print that looked like it had come from glass, that looked like there was some transparency". The Origami series blends together plane geometry and the layering of color.
Vitreograph previously framed.
