origami

This Slate wrap-up mentions a New Yorker article about origami artist Robert Lang. Lang’s website is somewhere beyond simply interesting; if I had a few days to fold, I suspect it could be a very rewarding experience.


update
(2/13 @ 11:55am):
The New Yorker article is now online, as mentioned in Make magazine.

The more I look at Lang’s origami—especially the polypolyhedra—the more intrigued I become. Thomas Hull’s instructions for building the “five intersecting tetrahedral” piece are going to inspire a search for large origami paper as soon as I get home. (I’ve also spent too much time drooling over the images in the Mathematica gallery, so there’s definitely a geometric commonality between my recent mini-obsessions.)
