A King Cobra Folded from a Single Sheet of Tissue Paper

This accomplished king cobra designed by Ronald Koh was recently folded by orgiami artist Matthieu Georger from a single piece of specially treated tissue paper. The detail is amazing, especially the hundreds and hunreds of scales that individually require multiple folds to create. The artist also folds a wide range of other exotic animals, mythological beasts, and insects worthy of a quick look.

French artist Mademoiselle Maurice (previously here and here) has two fun new pieces up this month as part of the 2013 ARTAQ Festival in Angers, France. Requiring over 30,000 folded components, the artist relied on help from school children and people living in nearby “leisure centers” to help complete all of the pieces in time for installation. Hundreds of additional volunteers were on-hand to help cover a stairwell leading to Montée St-Maurice which was completed on May 31st. See many more photos here.

Bristol-based visual artist Joanie Lemercier has been experimenting with light projected onto 3D canvases.
