Eric Gjerde

In my hands, paper cranes unfold into ugly ducklings. Origami is hard. Do your paper swans make you cocky? Perhaps you were unaware of Eric Gjerde. His work consists of complex patterns executed with such talent that your cranes look like they flew from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico directly into your clumsy hands. What a mess.

What’s more impressive about Gjerde’s work is that it’s well-documented on his own site and his flickr page. In his words: “I really dislike the lack of information sharing in the origami world.” Who knew the origami world was just like BP?

    Love geometry which is the base of origami and architecture, maybe you should take a look at mexican sculptor Sebastian, he is currently working with fashion designers, some image on Flickr of his work
