Oritsunagumono by Takayuki Hori

January 27, 2011

Two origami posts in a row? Yes, my friends. Each more incredible than the last. Behold the work of Japanese student Takayuki Hori which won first place in the 2010 Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Competition. The collection, entitled Oritsunagumono (things folded and connected) involves the skeletons of eight endangered species which are delicately printed on translucent paper and then folded in an origami fashion to represent the animals. A poignant and grim reminder of life’s fragility. What a brilliant project. (via iain claridge / spoon & tamago)

Torn Paper Sculptures by Anna-Wili Highfield

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Wonderful paper animal sculptures by Sydney-based artist Anna-Wili Highfield.

The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings.

Conservationist Kerri Wolter Flies with Vultures

Conservationist Kerri Wolter who manages the Vulture Conservation Program in Magaliesberg, South Africa gets the opportunity to paraglide with several thousand vultures. Really incredible camera work and breathtaking shots of birds I wouldn’t normally consider so beautiful or majestic. Head over to Vimeo for the HD version which is an order of magnitude more awesome.
