Browsing old posts in Origami Tessellations, I found out about Joel Cooper’s origami masks. Here are a few examples taken from these two web pages.
They are really amazing… I hope I can learn how to do that. I’ll have to start learning something about origami tessellations, which is a thing I’ve always skipped.
This weekend I bought three books:
Bill Evans: How My Heart Sings (Bill Evans: Vida y Obra), Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury (Crónicas Marcianas) and The Lebanese Cookbook (a spanish edition). I have already finished Bradbury’s, I enjoyed it a lot. A masterpiece in science-fiction. In one of its short stories there is a poem by Lord Byron:
So we’ll go no more a roving
so late into the night
A few years ago, I was looking after some song lyrics (don’t remember exactly which song they belong to), and went into some of these web’s that give you “you may also like this” links. Well, I looked into the lyrics of “For Crying Out Loud”, by Meat Loaf (who I hadn’t heard about, ever). This are the lyrics, and as almost all Steinman’s-Meat Loaf songs, they are quite long. Just read the first few verses if you don’t feel like reading:
Kamiya Satoshi’s Pegasus, folded from a square from A4 standard paper (21x21 cm square). The model is about 8 cm long. Satoshi suggests 25x25 paper, which obviously must be thinner than 80g/m^2. But the model itself is wonderful, although my rendition of may not be worth of it.
PS: Shame on me, for not rendering the head as it must be done (à la Dave Brill’s horse). Well, next time, with bigger paper :)
