Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper. Won Park is the master of Origami. Referred to as the “money folder”, He manipulates money in order to create these beautiful Origami structures.
Mihoko Ogaki’s sculpture installations are a poetic interpretation of Carl Sagan’s assertion that we’re all made of star stuff. She sculpts dead and dying figures that beam pinpoints of light from the inside, turning them into the origins of glorious galaxies at the moment of death.
Ogaki’s work often reflects a fascination with both the beginning and the end of human life, portraying it in ways that attract our fascination with moments in human development we sometimes push from our consciousness. Her dying figures are sometimes distressing and sometimes meditative, but when you turn off the lights, the LEDs surround the viewer with a brilliant reminder that so much exists in the universe beyond that single human life.

I can’t do perspective for shit so I just made it warpy and whimsicalgave me a lot of grief.
