FOLDING is a geological term that describes the phenomenon of how most
mountains are created in nature. The tectonic plates on earth are constantly
moving and with centuries as wheels under them, they are slowly colliding,
creating folds that can be lifted thousands of meters up in the air. A principle
very much resembling that of when a piece of paper folds when pushed together. 

Connecting this mountain phenomenon to a drawing point of view is a way to
relate to this very slow process of movement in a small, drawing specific scale,
as well as noticing the small gesture of when a paper bends like folded
mountains.
