These beautiful curved-crease sculptures are by father-son duo Martin Demaine and Erik Demaine. The sculptures are self-folding origami—creases in the paper cause the sculptures to fold into complex forms.

We are exploring what shapes are possible in this genre of self-folding origami, with applications to deployable structures, manufacturing, and self-assembly. This transformation of flat paper into swirling surfaces creates sculpture that feels alive.
