479: Dollar Koi

Posted by wonko on July 17, 2014 in fish |

There is a branch of Origami that I have not explored because I live in Australia and our bank notes are no longer paper, they are plastic:

Moneygami, an exacting discipline that uses USD paper notes, a particular format where all notes are the same size and still made of paper is fascinating for a bunch of reasons.

The accuracy needed to tease so much detail out of such a small rectangle of tough paper is an art, and Won park is an astonishingly talented designer that designed this fish – a lovely catfish/Koi Carp.

Mind buggering (and finger bleeding) details include a luscious fantail, scales, gills, fins, a majestic head with EYES that are part of the “greenback” printed design – wow!.

A friend brought back some greenbacks for me to fold, but this one was from a student of mine who happened to have a US$1 bill in his wallet for some reason – he was eager for me to try fold it, I agreed only if I could give it back to him – the result is this lovely thing.
