Extreme Origami - Woven Solids

Browsing through my books I came across Extreme Origami, by Kunihiko Kasahara. This is a very interesting book and a source of inspiration. The author encourages the reader to "free (himself) from the traditional rules of classical origami" by experimenting using different shapes, materials, techniques and even allowing some cutting, painting and gluing.

Binding, pleating and weaving are some of the techniques described in the book. The cubes (top and bottom left) and the greek soccer ball (right) in the picture below are some of the models from the book. They were made from plaited card stock strips.

Great book, as someone that came to Origami late, (48 years old) I wasn’t constrained by formal training, paint , glue, scissors, are a part of creating and expression, origami has opened a new door and a discipline with rules to follow and rules to break. Knowing when is the question.
