“Mountainside Matrix” is a book structure representing the natural complexity of a mountainside forest in autumn.

The basic structure is made up of six, 12-panel parallel accordions tied together at each end and spaced apart to allow for collapsing to a flat form. Additional tie points are added in 20 places to allow for uniform movement when collapsing and extending. Magnetic catches secure the structure in the open and closed positions.
