Won Parkis the master of Origami. He is also called the “money folder”, a practitioner of origami whose canvas is the United States One Dollar Bill. Bending, twisting, and folding, Won Park creates life-like shapes inspired by objects living and not– both in stunning detail.
Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.
Part of Kiel Johnson’s “Everyone’s An Architect” installation at TEDActive this year. The project continues to grow throughout the time it’s displayed as collaborators stop by to add their personal touch to this paper metropolis. The cities lights are powered by human foot traffic as visitors jump on pressure pads located around the city.
