The Chimei Museum in Taiwan shows a sequel to their temporary exhibition Origami Universe: an exhibition of art and innovation through folding, which was presented in 2016. The new exhibition Origami Universe II : Pop-Up Wonders can be seen from 1 October 2020 to 15 June 2021. I am very happy to be participating with four of my artistic pop-up paper sculptures.

Relax and watch a short movie!
Der amerikanische Filmstudent Christopher Helkey hat eine Dokumentation über mich und meine Pop-Ups gedreht.
In this video I show you how to develop three-dimensional structures from a single sheet of paper. Furthermore, I explain a few basic principles for the development of 90° pop-up cards.
I have created these 11 pop-up sculptures in the years between 1989 and 2011. Perhaps you know them already from some of my other YouTube videos. Today I used these sculptures to test some visual effects in iMovie.
In a video you can see a picture with 12 kittens. After swapping the items there are only 11! How is that possible? Find out for yourself:
In my video you will see the illusion of a floating cube. If you want to know how I did it, just watch the video until the end. From the 28th second, you can see how it works.
