Origami Artists Who Take Things To The Extreme

Joanie Lemercier – Technology Meets An Ancient Art


Well-known artist Joanie Lemercier crafted a jaw-dropping piece that blends origami and color with a touch of technology in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Lemercier likes to give extra depth to his pieces by using three-dimensional pyramids. He describes his motives, saying, “Every day we stare at screens. We look at cinema screens, TV screens, phone screens, and it’s always a flat, rectangular projection or a flat rectangular image. What I like with projection mapping is that you can turn anything into a display, you can take a sculpture and project colors on it and really change the way it looks.”
