Origami, also known as the art of paper folding, transforms your mundane everyday pieces of paper into unique three-dimensional sculptures.
While you’re probably aware of the usual folded paper planes or boats, you’ll be surprised to know that the world’s largest origami exhibit, Origami Universe is held at Chimei Museum in Tainan, Taiwan.
From now to 30 May 2017, Origami Universe will exhibit more than 400 unique works from over 60 artists, designers, scientists, and researchers that are based in more than 20 countries.
These include your adorable palm-sized animal sculptures, such as the above “Harambe“.
Origami has evolved over the years, and now transcends paper. Mathematical theories and laws have been formulated and contemporary furniture and fashion pieces have also been created with these folded sculptures.
With such a broad spectrum of contemporary origami creations, this is one exhibition you should not miss while you are in Taiwan.
