Eric Joisel Origami

The other day I came across an obituary in the New York Times for an origami artist named Eric Joisel. I had never heard of him before, but the photograph of his work caught my eye. (How in the world could that be made out of one piece of folded paper?) So I read it and clicked through the accompanying slide show.

I was completely blown away. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing artistry and craftsmanship taken to the nth degree, especially by a single person using just their own two hands and minimal materials.

The obituary mentioned Between the Folds, a documentary in which he was featured, so I found it on Netflix and streamed it – with my eyes and mouth wide open, in total awe. This is a must watch!
