Once, it was a fad to hunt animals and put them up as trophies in the living room. Well, thankfully, we (or at least most of us) are beyond that point. But if the hunter in you still wants some animal heads on the wall, we’d recommend something much less bloody and much more artistic, like the Origami’s Hunter.
Creating shapes from a single sheet of paper without the use of any adhesives or the like is cool enough, but creating the same at near tiny levels is amazing. Artist Mui-Ling Teh has created this tiny origami art, which in passing would look nothing more than bits of paper. A closer look, and the wonderful art becomes more visible.
The Origami tea bags concept from Russian designer Natalia Ponomareva adds a fair taste of art to one of the world’s favorite beverages. These tea bags are designed to expand as the tea steeps, making them look more interesting as the time passes. These tea bags aren’t in production yet, but the designer hopes they will soon be available in the market.
Art does happen to have a carbon footprint, even if it is simple painting, or even origami. Not so with the art of Bela Borsodi. The artist creates origami sculptures using clothes, but makes sure not to permanently alter the clothing, thus leaving the path for their return to use as normal clothes open. The artist makes great looking origami sculptures from cloth. Have a look.
