COLOUR THEORY





 Mette Pederson's "Mette Rings".

12 rings, 18 units per ring, 216 sheets.

If I had more colours I would have done this.

DIVERGENCE







"Divergenz" by Ramin Razani
 
"The two prisms resonate visually with the pass of the beholder"


A SERIOUS ADDICTION


I moved out of studio this week and had to bring home my prized desk-origami.


With this addiction comes a serious problem...
Where do I keep all of this??

MORE RULE BREAKING




More kirigami from last night's late night fold-fest.
(My work station gets pretty messy...)

 


"Pforte in der Wand" by Ramin Razani
("Gate in the Wall")






"Meerestreppe" By Ramin Razani
("Mairine Stairs")

More Kirigami to come, I'm sure (I'm kind of addicted).

RULE BREAKER



I recently stumbled upon some amazing kirigami art...
And they break the golden origami rule: No cutting.

It's been a while since I've broken the "no cutting" rule so...




"Die Entstehung des Bogens " by Ramin Razani
("The Genesis of the Ark")


I made more... But the internet is being uncooperative and I'm tired!
Oh well, another post for another day.

THIS ISN'T PAPER RELATED



But it's still something I love just as much!
I thought I'd share some stills from one of my favourite movies.

WHAT'S A DODECAHEDRON ANYWAYS?

My friend Nat posted this on the Carleton ID blog a few weeks back and I was mesmerized. 

Then I discovered how to make this:



Luisa Urgias' Origami Great Dodecahedron.
Sure it was 30 units, but I got to learn about the magic of dodecahedrons.

(Except they used tape, tisk tisk)
