Illuminated Origami

Illuminated Origami

By Michael Shannon

These origami works are playfully augmented with light and interactive circuitry. Illuminating different folding techniques with light, such as shining through crumpled layered paper and sharp creases, creates beautiful textures and lines on the paper while adding dynamic elements.

You can find many more great images, videos and even unfolded circuits of these delightful origami works on Michael Shannon’s instagram account @Phreq.uency. The following are some selected posts:
