“Computational Origami” is technically a triptych of paper art which is now part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). In the three-part work, each piece is connected together using multiple circular pieces of paper. “The title “Computational Origami” refers to our underlying algorithmic goal of determining the mathematical curved surface that results from different kinds of pleated folding,” explains the Demaine website.

Computational Origami is Paper Art That Folds Itself!

These beautiful curved-crease sculptures are by father-son duo Martin Demaine and Erik Demaine. The sculptures are self-folding origami---creases in the pa

Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine  (b. 1981 and 1942, Canadian American)  Canadian-born Erik Demaine completed his Bachelor of Science degree by age 14 and his Ph.D. by age 20. His dissertation, a seminal work in the field of computational origami, received national awards and won him a MacArthur Fellowship. Since joining the MIT faculty in 2001, he has been the leading theoretician in computational origami, the study of what can be done with a folded sheet of paper....

Curved Crease Origami | Curved creases offer a wealth of new design possibilities. The challenge is to understand what 3D forms result after folding a set of curved creases. The mathematics of this special kind of geometry has been relatively underexplored and we don’t have proper descriptions of these curves. Most materials in architecture come as sheet goods and this research proposes a family of curved 3D geometries that can be fabricated from 2D sheet materials, by way of curved creases.
