Yeah, so file this under things I’ll never have the patience to do. Details are scarce, but Flickr user EyalR folds some incredible things with a single sheet of paper. Most of the designs are by other artists, such as Nguyen Hung Cuong and Hojyo Takashi, but his skill is palpable in each delicate piece. This lizard almost looks like real thing.

Twelve currencies folded into rings

After attending an interactive design workshop, Sophie Kemp was tasked with redesigning the parameters of a common interaction. For her project she chose the generous though often uninspiring act of giving money.

I decided to take the cold cut process of giving people money and enhance the experience of this action. I decided to take a dollar bill and use origami folds to make it into a ring as the giving of a ring has such emotional connections. I then made these rings out of 12 different currencies.

I’ve seen my fair share of folded origami rings, and maybe even struggled through making one myself in grade school, but seeing that same process applied across the layouts of different paper bill designs is pretty awesome. (via creative review)

Aquatic Origami

Don’t let the rather simple geometric images above fool you, watch the video. Using small pieces of paper (just 2-3cm wide) artist Etienne Cliquet has created delicately folded origami pieces that once placed in water begin to bloom, the result of capillary action as the paper absorbs water. Beautiful. (via reddit)

After several weeks of searching I finally managed to get in touch with Takayuki Hori the creator of the Oritsunagumono endangered animal origami collection that I posted here a while back. He provided some fantastic additional images and I was able to share them in my latest post over on designboom.

Right on the heels of last weeks moneygami post, this great work from artist Hasegawa Yosuke who folds assorted currency into little hat-wearing figures, and apparently if you have an iPhone, yeah, there’s an app for this complete with folding instructions. (via green chair press)
