London based, German photographer Alma Haser has an all too familiar portrait series entitled Cosmic Surgery, which we saw a glimpse of previously. This collection includes newer portraits specifically for PULSE Miami Beach. Her works have a process made up of three distinct stages. Firstly Alma photographs her sitter, then prints multiple images of the subjects face and folds them into a complicated origami modular construction, which then gets placed back onto the original face of the portrait. Finally the whole piece is re-photographed.
Her works will be on display during PULSE Miami Beach at the De Soto Gallery, Booth N-302 through December 31, 2016, so be sure to check it out and maybe I will see you there! You can also grab her new pop-up book featuring this series, which has some really nice origami pop-ups toward the back, as you can see in the video below.Cosmic Surgery: Origami Portraits by Alma Haser seen first on on Strictlypaper

Enfaltung, which in german harbors many meanings: unfold, expand or develop, is the basis of this Master's thesis project created by german native Jule Waible for her Design Products program at the Royal College of Art. This series features a yellow dress that transformes its shape dependent upon the movement of the body, a green expandable accordion styled bag and an orange umbrella which all use a style referred to as origami tessellation. It is exactly that in which it describes along with the magic of the source of her inspiration, Mary Poppin's enchanted bag. "Collapsible structures reflect how our world is constantly changing," she writes. "My response is to use folding as part of my design process."
