Pour certains d'entre eux, j'ai publié des instructions, accessibles via la rubrique diagrammes de ce blog. D'autres ne subsistent que par une photo sur flickr et quelques croquis dans mes archives manuscrites. Longtemps, j'ai attendu le prince charmant, un as du dessin vectoriel qui serait prêt à diagrammer toutes mes créations ; je ne vois toujours rien venir, et à mon âge, cela devient improbable. Mieux vaut profiter des quelques années qui me restent avant l'Alzheimer pour faire ce travail moi-même. Deux de mes modèles figurent dans le dernier livre de Meenakshi Mukerjee. Le premier résultat de mes efforts est présenté dans le billet précédent.

Peter Gentenaar: Paper Sculpture

Gothic architecture + paper art = SWOON! I love how the curves and organic forms of the paper sculptures echo the beautiful vaulting and cluster piers of the church interior – look how the sculptures have ribbing just like the ribbed groin vaults! Gothic architecture, facilitated by the invention of the flying buttress, is characterized by the towering, luminous spaces created by the higher ceilings and huger windows that flying buttresses allowed for (compared to the engaged buttresses of Romanesque architecture). So the true lightness and airiness of the suspended paper objects reminds us how the seemingly light and airy walls are actually a monumental stone structure. Just gorgeous, and amazing photos too. Interview: Jeff Nishinaka - Relief Paper Sculpture Artist. Los Angeles native Jeff Nishinaka is a relief paper sculpture artist who has a stunning array of work that needless to say can blow anyone away.

His portfolio spans a wide range including Bloomingdale’s, Sprint, Visa, Penn State University, Paramount Pictures and Coca Cola. Over the years he has found various techniques in how to manipulate and bend paper to make these magnificent masterpieces. I’m really happy to have him featured on our site since he is one of my favorite paper artists! Also be sure to check out the videos of the artist in action!

Taking hand-painted cotton paper, the artist cuts and sews pieces together and then drapes them on copper wire. The strong dramatic quality that these animals present may come from Highfield’s background as a scenic artist in Opera Australia.

Seems complicated ? Not for him, as he explained to us: « My speciality in the field of computer graphics is geometric modeling, so it’s not difficult for me to develop computer programs for designing origami once the underlying theory of origami geometry is clarified. » The beauty of his creations might be in the clearness and smooth complexity of the shapes, almost just curves. The pattern is scored on a sheet of paper by a cutting plotter. That’s why his art work is not just the folded origami pieces but also the software programs.Recently,Jun Mitani collaborated to »132 5. Jun Mitani creations are really at the confluence of Art & Science, one of the long term trend for the future. Text by Caroline Aufort. Origami à Nancy et autres billevesées: mars 2010. Encore quelques idées de papier à utiliser, selon vos besoins : - papier peint : vous pourrez faire des objets assez volumineux, car ce papier est en général assez épais - papier utilisé en arts créatifs pour coller sur des objets (boîtes etc ...) de marque Cré'art par exemple : ils sont joliment décorés, vendus en feuilles assez grandes que l'on peut découper à la taille voulue, et surtout très fins, ce qui permet des pliages précis.

Takayuki hori: oritsunagumono. Apr 21, 2011 takayuki hori: oritsunagumono ‘oritsunagumono’ by takayuki hori ‘oritsunagumono’ (translated as ‘things folded and connected’) is a collection of origami works by artist takayuki hori, created to highlight the environmental threat of pollution to a number of species native to japan’s coastal waterways. each translucent sheet is first printed with either the images of fragments of an animal’s skeleton, or, on some pages, human-made discarded objects that are often ingested by the animals in the wild.

Using the ancient tradition of folded paper, hori assembles the pages into a three-dimensional model. once the paper is folded, the printed components are united as a whole, telling the visual story of the animal’s plight to survive in an increasingly polluted and hazardous ecosystem. full view of one of the assembled works while the animal skeletons appear as x-ray images, the garbage they ingest is frequently highlighted in colour. X-Ray Origami of Endangered Species. Japanese student Takayuki Hori printed skeletons of eight endangered species on translucent paper.

When laid flat, all you see are scattered bones. Once the papers are folded together, however, the printed components unite as a whole, and the animals' frames spring to life! Oritsunagumono tells a visual story that highlights the environmental threat of pollution to species living on Japan's coastal waterways. Leçon d’origamis, de dépliages, par Marc Fichou. De la simple feuille à la forme crée par l’origami, il y a un sacré pas que le photographe Marc Fichou décompose pour nous, étape par étape, dans sa série de pliages très ingénieux.

Leçon d’origamis, de dépliages, par Marc Fichou

Sobrement intitulé Origamis, la série de Marc Fichou étonne par le soin apporté à l’ensemble. De l’éclairage discret à la justesse de la superposition des deux formes(à la pliure près), ces drôles d’animaux de papiers posent la question de la frontière entre art et photographie. Plus qu’un simple avant/après, la forme conçue et la forme dépliée cohabitent dans le même espace, donnant à la série une portée poétique évidente. Les limites entre les deux formes disparaissent, se confondent dans les traits et le jeu des ombres. Le reste de la série Origamis est à découvrir sur le site du photographe. . + Marc Fichou / Origamis. Video origami.
