3D design at Washtenaw Community College puts it to bed

My students blew me away this past semester at at WCC. These are images from their final installation at the college. I am going to miss this class. I can't believe I get paid to do this.

new work / kite flying

I gave a talk last week at Fort Wayne Indiana and after talking about paper folding and printmaking for an hour they asked me what I'm currently working on.
I'm making beats for the Olympics.
...more news on that as it unfolds-

But I do still fold paper and make drawings and prints,
some evidence:

this was made yesterday:

paper engineering 101 update:

As a final assignment in Paper Engineering I had asked students to design a kite from paper. I gave them some resources and had them research different kite designs. We defined a kite in out own way- it needed to get off the ground (fly) and not be a unicorn.

Our final class at u of m

Erin showing us how it's done

my overly-designed kite made from tyvek

the rain did not stop us

My other class is working with balloons. Hundreds of twist balloons. Our installation goes up this week and I'll be sure to upload some images very soon.

Number one!

My ego just got a little bit bigger.

I was told yesterday that when you type "paper engineer" or "paper engineering" into google image search my work comes up number one. In fact I'm number one and two...then Robert Sabuda! Take that, Sabuda!!!

Heres a screen capture as proof:

Also a few new pictures of work can be found here.
