I’m always amazed at the skill involved in making intricate origami pieces, and the time it takes to make them. Now they can be designed on computers, but that still doesn’t replace the artistry or ability to envision the outcome. Here are two videos that have impressed me recently.
The first one is simply a presentation of the most complex origamis pieces known to the video-maker. Remember, they’re all made out of a single sheet of paper (which can be large), without cutting or pasting. Only folding! You migbt want to turn down the music, and the popups are annoying (hover over them and click on the x’s to get rid of them).
And here is Master Folder showing the creation of a big origami dragon. The 9 hours of folding it took to make this are speeded up into a four-minute video.
