Like those who have posted below me, this post is going to be about origami. I enjoyed the activity we did in class on Thursday, even if it was actually super difficult getting those pieces to fit together and make perfect folds on one piece of paper. This inspired me to think bigger, more inventive ideas of origami. Upon a search on Google, I found origami street art, and more specifically, Mademoiselle Maurice.
- Mademoiselle Maurice makes her art in the streets instead of museums, and the art she creates is amazing. She started her life as an artist after the 2011 Japan earthquake, and here is a link to her website. http://www.mademoisellemaurice.com/en/creations/spectre-bis-repetita/
- Here is a link to one post I found on a piece of art in France. Pictures are below if you don’t wish to read the article. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2013/06/new-origami-street-art-in-angers-france-by-mademoiselle-maurice/ Not just an art for Mademoiselle Maurice, origami street art is reaching other audiences too. In 2015, a wall in Romania was covered with origami structures to promote the no hate movement.This concept to street origami art is similar to stain glass windows- they share similar patterns and color schemes. More and more street artists are exploring this style of math and art, brightening up Europe and Asia in particular.
