If you’ve ever sat and tried to figure out the math behind geometric folds? It’s an incredibly tricky process! With this Origami Study Yuin Chien has created a beautiful digital representation of the folds, and colors of origami.
In her own words, the project is:
A series of visual study exploring origami compositions and colors, hoping to give forms to personal memories and poetic imagination.
It was really fun to study origami! I played with forms, colors & compositions for playful/poetic imagination. More process here:https://t.co/QULbpkvKmm— Yuin Chien (@yuinchien) January 22, 2020

Yuin has written a little about the process on her blog and also shown off some stunning renderings, showing off how quickly the complexity of the folded shapes grows as you fold more and more.
You’ll also notice some nifty controls in the top right corner, allowing you to add extra folds, and play with the fillings! These are built with an amazingly versatile interface tool, called Dat.Gui which is always good to have in your back pocket for all your upcoming projects!More like this?
