Teeny Tiny Origami is Big on Cool
August 16th, 2011
I am not artsy at all. I can’t draw, I can’t paint, and I am not the sort to make crafts. About as artsy as I get is building something out of LEGO on occasion or making the occasional scale model with my kids. I have always thought that origami was cool, but the chances of me folding paper correctly are slim.
Artist Anja Markiewicz has taken the art of origami to new highs by making the art very small. I have no idea how the artist is able to fold things so tiny and still with such precision. I will assume it involves magnifying glasses and tweezers.
My favorites are the tiny snowflake and the purple dragon. I’d like to see instructions for origami this small to try my hand at it.
More examples can be found over on Anja’s Flickr page.
