Jun Mitani is a professor of computer science at the University of Tsukuba who has an incredible knack for paper folding. With the help of algorithms and computer software that he’s developed, he is able to create these 3D origami pieces. Check out the many different folds and shapes he has come up with below.
“Follow the paper plane into Sehsucht‘s latest origami-style world of helping hands and improved communities. Sehsucht produced the 30 sec. TVC “Paper” full CG for Deutsche Fernsehlotterie, a charitable lottery, and their agency Zum Goldenen Hirschen, all three companies from Hamburg/Germany. Director Hans-Christoph Schultheiss and his team walked the tightrope between reduction and complexity, aiming to create the characters as human as possible but with a realistically foldable look that carries the complex textures of paper.”
“The Spanish street artist Nuria Mora has created colorful origami pieces and placed them on display in public ad spaces in Tirso de Molina square, downtown Madrid. Inserting her 3D paper sculptures into billboards in the bustling city center, they can be enjoyed by shoppers and passers-by, as they are viewable from both sides and lit up at night.” — PSFK
The Paper Fox is the working title of a children’s book for android and ipad tablets that Jeremy Kool is currently working on. Jeremy successfully crowdfunded his project through Pozible. The story is created by himself and written by his sister Amanda who is a published fiction author. All of the artwork in the book is done by Jeremy and it’s absolutely beautiful. Characters and the landscapes are created 100% digitally but made to look like paper craft and real origami. We love the style and can’t wait to see the book come to live. Continue reading
