Origamic Architecture Kirigami Cards for Free !
At the beginning Origamic Architecture is a paper folding and cutting art created in the early 80's by Masahiro Chatani (a Japanese architect). It consists of a simple sheet of paper that the artist cuts and folds to create a pop-up shape as the card is opened. The OA cards frequently represent famous buildings or geometrical figures but there are many other possibilities. M.Chatani and Keiko Nakazawa have published many of early books on this Art. L'Architecture Origamique est un art du pliage-découpage initié au début des années 80 par Masahiro Chatani (un architecte japonais).

Fun With Wax Paper: Abstract Melted Crayon Art Here's a fun craft activity that can also be an interesting way to introduce your children to the idea of abstract art! Grated crayons sandwiched between wax paper and then melted with an iron make beautiful abstract works of art, even worthy of hanging on the wall! The wooden Moroccan frames that we have hanging over our kitchen table have now become useful for a rotating art exhibition, including these works of crayon art. (Read my previous post about decorating with empty frames here.) You'll Need: crayonsa plastic cheese grater, that would be somewhat safe for kids to usewax paperan ironan old pillow case

DIY Instructions for Beginners As a beginner to pop-ups, the V-fold and box fold techniques are likely to be the ones you will be using most. Here is a list of the most common mechanisms used in pop-up creation: - V-Folds: These can be cut and folded directly into the main piece of card, or can be created by adding an additional section of card for the pop-up shape. V-folds are very versatile and are where, simply enough, a V shape is created with the pop-up section. It's either the folds made in the base card, or the connections between the separate pop-up section and the base card, which produce the 'V' shape when the base card is open.

★ Origamic Architecture Instructions & Free Kirigami Templates ★ Architectural origami is the art of paper cutting to create 3D buildings – from just one sheet of paper! The designs range from the simple to the exceptionally intricate, and the subject matter can be anything from a whole city to a famous landmark or even your own house. This page will focus on 90° pop-up buildings and detailed shapes, where the 3D design emerges and is fully visible when the paper is folded to an angle of 90 degrees. That means that this technique is well suited to making impressive pop-up cards as well – although you won’t be mass producing these for all your colleagues at Christmas (unless you start in January!) Below you will find inspirational examples of origami artist’s work, advice for creating your own artwork, plus free online downloads.

Step 1: Click on the link to download the .pdf template for the pop-up Christmas Tree: Christmas Tree Step 2: Print out both pages from the template onto heavy paper, such as card stock or construction paper. Step 3: Lay the card that has the outline of the tree on a flat surface. Take a ruler and line the edge of it up against the center fold line of the card. Step 4: Use the rounded end of a paper clip (or a ball point pen that has run out of ink) and press it along the dotted line carefully scoring the card all the way from top to bottom. Daniel Sussman (Images from The next decade promises to revolutionize the way we think about generating structures. Three-dimensional printing, with its ability to both prototype and create intricate structures as desired at low cost, is well on its way to technological maturity. Much less attention has been paid to a complementary idea: controllable two-dimensional surfaces that can self- assemble via simple cues into responsive three dimensional structures.

Fun With Wax Paper: Pressed Leaf And Flower Art Here's another great craft activity using just wax paper and fresh leaves and flowers! This activity has two parts, making it that much more fun, and time consuming, usually a good thing right about now? First take a nature walk and collect leaves and flowers, and then use the things you've collected to make beautiful window art. Drawing Index Page 1. Basic Drawing Equipment - 1 2. Origamic Architecture: Stunning Sculptures Cut Out of Paper In the Japanese paperfolding art of origami, cutting the paper is frowned upon. But in 1981, Masahiro Chatani, professor of Architecture at Tokyo Institute of Technology proved that papercutting could indeed produce stunning pieces of art. Along with his colleague Keiko Nakazawa, Chatani developed Origamic Architecture, a variation of kirigami (itself a variation of origami where cuts were allowed), where you only needed an X-acto knife and a ruler to create complex 3-dimensional structures out of a single sheet of paper. Origamic Architecture sculptures range from (the relatively simple) geometric patterns to famous buildings' facades.

Take 6 strips with a length of 12 times the with. In our example we will use 6 strips of 2cm x 24cm in the colors purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Pop Up Card Tutorial Lesson 2 Level of Difficulty: Medium Box Variation In Lesson 1 we cut rectangular boxes on the card fold. The pop out piece created by this cut has two identical faces. Viewed from the side the pop out piece and the card form a square. Lesson 2 is a variation in which the pop out piece faces are not identical. Origamic Architecture, pop-up cards and other kirigami. Origamic architecture (OA) and pop-up cards are a type of kirigami. When compared to paper snowflakes, these paper art forms are like the “extreme sports” of kirigami. Kirigami Cut-Outs Most people will remember kirigami as the paper snowflakes made by school-aged children.

Making Awesome Knowledge-building Experiences Huge paradigm shifts in museum culture are underway as a variety of institutions are engaging in 3D digitization to democratize their collections through the digitization of priceless artifacts and bringing access to the masses (Milroy & Rozefelds, 2015). Scientists in the fields of anthropology and paleontology have been using photogrammetry techniques to capture and record measurements of physical objects, but technological advancements now enable high quality digital scanning with specialized hardware, such as the Makerbot Digitizer (costs approximately $800) and the NextEngine 3D scanner (costs approximately $3,000). Once the files are converted to virtual 3D models, they are made available on a variety of websites where you can access the files to download (as .stl formatted files) or explore within interactive 3D viewers. Smithsonian X 3DSmithsonian X 3D is a 3D model database allows anyone with an Internet connection access to Smithsonian’s most renowned artifacts.
