June 11th, 2018: Origami

This guy does some impressive origami, a far cry from paper cranes.



Quote:
Brooklyn-based polymath Robby Kraft currently teaches coding to artists and designers at Parsons and the School for Poetic Computation, but his love for the connected worlds of art and math began at a young age; he started folding origami in elementary school. More recently, Kraft was introduced to the algorithmic aspects of origami.


Quote:
Around 2013, he began to learn more through Erik Demaine’s origami lectures at MIT, and Robert Lang’s books. In addition to folding increasingly intricate works designed by others in the origami community, about two years ago Kraft started using algorithmic code to design new origami patterns.



Quote:
Kraft is also a classical musician, and describes the similarity between sheet music and origami: “the crease pattern and diagrams are instructions on a mathematically flat 2D manifold, impossible in the real world, so to fold an origami is to capture it into the real world and add imperfections.” Kraft is working on releasing the code he created to the public, and he shares with Colossal that in the future he hopes to publish a book on origami design.

While the other ones (his designs) are more my style, the squid and ship (apparently a Brian Chan design) is pretty amazing.

I was fairly impressed by the wavy thing next to the kraken scene. No creases. Special paper, I guess.

Well, these blow my cranes out of the water.



Happy Monkey  Tuesday Jun 12 11:44 AM

My most advanced was John Montroll's Stegosaurus, which is still nowhere near that Kraken. And I never got the feet right.

I can make a paper hat.




Gravdigr  Tuesday Jun 12 03:33 PM

Pfft.

I can fold a newspaper.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jun 12 06:08 PM

Aren't paper hats supposed to be mage from the Sunday comics pages?



Glinda  Wednesday Jun 13 04:09 PM

Only if you like getting newsprint all over your hands.



Gravdigr  Thursday Jun 14 04:53 PM

Ted is wearing a formal hat.
