3D Origami by Jun Mitani

Jun Mitani might be a professor of computer science at the University of Tsukuba but I’m pretty sure he has a Ph.D. in paper folding. He works his magic with the help of algorithms and computer software that he’s developed to create the 3D origami pieces he’s known for. After doing the designing in the software, he scores folding lines on the paper. Once that’s done, he let’s his hands do what they do best and these sculpture are formed. Can you imagine the paper cuts he must have?

Look, he doesn’t just use paper!
