"If you've ever wondered how an origami designer thinks, or wanted more information on how to create new origami models yourself, this book is for you. In Creating Origami, J.C. Nolan brings you inside his origami design process in glorious detail, explaining his creative techniques for origami design. Nolan describes his experience of exploration, trial, error, and success, as he worked out the origami design process and documented his experiences during his growth in knowledge and expertise. The first 100 pages of the book are dedicated to his thoughts on the creative experience, strategies, tools and tricks of the trade, detailing instructions for origami bases and techniques used in the models. Included are more than 50 models that Nolan designed or was inspired by. His detailed instructions for the famous two-color Clownfish and Sea Anemone are still an amazing classic model for origami folders. Other models range in difficulty from simple to complex, represented by well-drawn diagrams, with models from famed creators Fred Rohm, Patricia Crawford, and others. After 15 years of being out of print, Creating Origami is a rare, sought-after classic, original copies of which are jealously guarded by lucky collectors who were able to obtain them upon its first release. Now, after a successful and well publicized re-launch campaign on Kickstarter.com, Creating Origami is once again available to a new generation of fans, folders, and designers. A must-have book for the technical folder or budding creator!"
"Every year, OrigamiUSA holds its annual convention at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. At the convention, works are displayed by some of the most talented origami artists from around the world. Here I have put together a quick slideshow of some of the pictures that I took during this year's convention! I hope you enjoy it!"
A nice exhibition catalog, downloadable, from 1959. "In March 1959 Lillian Oppenhimer travelled to Japan to meet Akira Yoshizawa and later in the year she helped to organise "Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures", an exhibition of artistic and geometrical paperfolding at the Cooper Union Museum at New York. Legman sent his collection to New York and Yoshizawa's creations were once more displayed to an enthusiastic public in one of the great cities of the Western world."
French artist Mademoiselle Maurice (28) uses origami, lace, painting and embroidery to create artworks which may look naive at first sight, but actually they are deep, sensitive and connected with the events encountered during her daily life.
"The Hydro-Fold printer is the handiwork of Christophe Guberan, a third-year design student at the Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), which will be unveiling the project this week at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. The transformative magic centers on a simple tweak: Guberan replaced the regular ink in the printer cartridge with an ink-and-water mixture, which, when printed onto paper in various patterns, creates fold lines. As the paper dries, it contorts and retracts along the damp areas, creating three-dimensional, sculptural objects."
I got this ticket in a town where the cops (and absurd redlight cameras) are pretty much a money trap and that's it. I decided to pay in an appropriate manner: 137 origami pig $1 bills in a pair of Dunkin' Donut boxes.
"A parallelogram pirouette or a quadrille of quadrilaterals. This is a mosaic folded from a single piece of paper. The paper is off-white mottled with brown and tan and accents of gold on the front. Even the back side has interest with interlocking medallions of hexagonal twists. The piece is approximately 19 cm. across and treated with shellac for durability."
