In case you thought the world of origami started with the crane and ended with the frog, Jospeh Wu is the origami artist for you. Wu’s website features not only his own patiently constructed creations, but presents a nice gallery of the important works of others. Some of the pieces come with instructions, others are special commissions or more exclusive designs. Fish and fowl are certainly prominent amongst the models, but Wu has also done a variety of inanimate objects, like microscopes, movie cameras and computers. A modern take on a long-time tradition.
Artist: Joseph Wu
Sea Anemone / Cape Buffalo
Turd / Leaping Buck
Wu admits the turd, commisioned for a Dutch newspaper group, was the strangest work he has ever done.
