Naoki Yoshimoto’s “Magical Cube”
I’m inclined to assume his geometry class experience was exactly the opposite as mine. Boy did that teacher hate me.
For those that have that love/hate relationship with coffee there are some cool illustrations and stories at the following NYTimes link. Put your 2¢ in on the comments.
I’ve always had a love for origami. I’ve made a few basic objects before and love giving it as a present. If I think about it origami for me was always a kid thing. It holds the wonders of a child. It is simplicity, creative and was inspired by nature.
Well this talk presented origami in all it’s splendar. I really had no idea just how far origami had advanced and the contributions it makes in solving scientific problems. Very cool.
This site is great (www.langorigami.com) because it pays attention to both disciplines of origami, the artistic side and the scientific side. You’ll understand more after you watch the talk but for those on the science side there is a lot of explanation and the extra ordinary contribution is Robert’s computational works he gives out free for your own origami desires.
I find the crease patterns to be art alone.
Amazing representations of artwork on his portfolio site blublu.org. One particular animation that has been making the WWW rounds this past week is his MUTO animation. It’s an amazing example of Rigor.
