Origami Crane Made from … 2,000,000 Origami Cranes: A Flapping Success for Japan Earthquake Relief

Origami Crane Made from ... 2,000,000 Origami Cranes: A Flapping Success for Japan Earthquake Relief paper origami multiples installation

Shortly after the Japan earthquake the nonprofit Bezos Family Foundation invited children from around the world to mail origami cranes to its Seattle headquarters, promising to donate $2 per crane to the relief efforts, up to to $200,000. A few days later a truck arrived filled with thousands of cranes. And then another truck. And then another. Eventually over 2,000,000 cranes arrived at the steps of the non-profit and the organization doubled its donation. Now, Brooklyn-based Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has been tasked with taking the cranes and making something incredible with them. Above, an image from the New York Times Magazine shows the progress of his meta paper crane mosaic made of paper cranes made from math homework, hall passes, love letters, Saran wrap, Kleenex, candy wrappers, and restaurant menus. Astounding! (via hyperallergic, ny times magazine)

How wicked is this paper skull concept? It kind of reminds me of an origami Punisher logo. Details are scarce on what this actually is, but it was created by Matthieu Jacobs of the creative firm D-Sturbed. Please mass produce these.

Paper artist Matthew Shlian has just released this wonderful series of paper works called The Tessellation Series available over at the Ghostly Store. According to the site the project began earlier this year as an exploration of basic geometry inspired by electronic music. He writes:

In my studio I am a collaborator, explorer and inventor. I begin with a system of folding and at a particular moment the material takes over. Guided by wonder, my work is made because I cannot visualize its final realization; in this way I come to understanding through curiosity.

Shlian is an MFA graduate of Cranbrook Academy and divides his time between teaching at the University of Michigan and “mocking up new-fangled packaging options for billion dollar blue-chips, and creating some of the most inspiring paper art around.” I think I’d probably buy whatever this guy designs just for the packaging.
