Aquatic Origami

May 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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)

This is designer Ching-Wen Wu’s first foray into stop-motion animation. She was inspired by the SNASK stop-motion short by Mike Crozier, and indeed many of the shots, sequences, and effects are almost identical shot for shot. However Wu’s seems more refined and perfect, it’s hard to believe this is her first attempt at something like this. Some making-of shots here.

Fun with rolling papers, or, I did not know “Rizzling” was a thing

February 26, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Rizzling is the fine art of becoming completely intoxicated, placing loose rolling paper on your fingertips and running around a room like an idiot in front of your drunk friends while the papers spin like pinwheels.

Excuse me while I go pick up some Jameson and rolling papers. My place at 8? (via booooooom)
