I’ve never gotten into origami as a hobby or anything but it never fails to catch my eye whenever I happen across it. It’s actually rather odd that’s it’s not an active interest of mine as it’s got so many properties I love — paper, pattern, geometry, a puzzle-like sensibility — and yet my hands remain apathetic. It’s not an art for impatient fingers. I especially came to appreciate this after watching the documentary Between the Folds. If you want to know how far a single piece of paper can go, it’s a must-see. Truly though, what I like most about origami are the diagrams, like the series above by paper folder Francesco Guarnieri. there’s just something about the web of those red and black lines that is infinitely delightful to my eye.
