Origami Artists Who Take Things To The Extreme

Robert Lang Experiments With Size


Robert Lang is an Ex-NASA physicist who uses mathematics to make his origami pieces as life-like as possible. Using computer-powered calculations he crafts pieces that human hands would never be able to. He’s credited with creating the smallest origami piece ever made and his work is on display in museums all over the world. One of his most famous pieces is 14-foot long origami pteranodon. It’s also his largest piece. His creations are always centered around realism. He loves to recreate living things such as praying mantis, hummingbirds and owls. Lang tests out his designs on the computer first, ensuring they’ll work without wasting hours folding and refolding paper.
