Colorful Origami Flowers Change with Shadows and Light


Kota Hiratsuka is a paper artist living in Japan that takes the art of paper folding or origami to new heights! With shadows and light in mind, he creates three-dimensional works, like these origami flowers, that change their appearance depending on the viewer's angle. With just a ruler and a cutter, he cuts and folds paper, by hand, into geometric patterns until he creates these gorgeous mosaics. His most recent piece (above) is called Colorful Flower. Incredible!
