Komiya's Dahlia, fractalized

Komiya's Dahlia, fractalized | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"[This is] the Dahlia by Hajime Komiya, but I've used the extra paper at the center to create two more levels. A three-level version of this, but with a neater transition and a more realistic center. Here I was able to figure out a recursive folding process, which bears some similarities to both Chris Palmer's decreeping methods, and to Shuzo Fujimoto's Hydrangea."

The Genius Who Plays For A Living

The Genius Who Plays For A Living | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"Just before he was old enough to vote but after he’d begun a doctorate in computer science, Erik Demaine arrived in New York City for the annual OrigamiUSA convention. He’d recently taken an interest in the hobby because he thought the math behind it might make for a compelling dissertation topic. Walking the aisles of the convention, Demaine saw the usual paper artistry—delicate insects, puffed-up bunnies—but he also learned of more elaborate forms, such as a three-car model locomotive crafted from a single sheet of paper. That train, like many intricate works of origami, sprang from a basic folding pattern called the box pleat.


Developed in the mid-1960s, the box pleat is a grid of vertical and horizontal creases combined with some well-placed diagonals. A Swiss physicist named Emmanuel Mooser popularized the pattern when he used it to create what’s now known as Mooser’s Train, one of the great achievements in origami. At the convention, Demaine began to wonder whether the box pleat could be used to make even bigger, more complex designs. Could it fold into a Mooser’s Passenger Jet, a Mooser’s Rocket Ship, or a Mooser’s Full-Size Nuclear Submarine?"

Giant Origami Installation Piece (25m long)

Giant Origami Installation Piece (25m long) | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

We created an extremely large work, based on my Dragon Helix pattern, using elephant hide sheets cut in to strips and then glued together to achieve a 42 meter long sheet of paper. By my calculations there are over 19,000 folds, 2.86km of creases, and about a month’s worth of actual time folding. It took from June 2012 until October 2012 to fold this thing; I had to stop folding at times because the paper was so rough on my hands that it hurt too much to keep folding. I believe this is one of the largest and most complex origami pieces ever made.

Tin Man origami sculpture mask

Tin Man origami sculpture mask | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"The Tin Man may not have a heart (or so he thinks) but he can have a home.


I painted a large piece of gray elephant hide paper with layers of ink and acrylic glaze to achieve the look of old, oxidized metal. I then spent many, many hours folding this intricate origami portrait. I think the result is quite striking.


This piece of sculpture is approximately 26 cm. tall by 19 cm. wide and 7 cm. deep. It has been treated with amber shellac to enhance its beauty and preserve its shape. It is ready to hang on your wall."
