Pepakura is a software tool that makes it easier to make foldout models out of 3d creation software models. Ofcourse this software is from Japan (free to play with, $35 to use fully). There’s some beautiful examples online. Sculptors are trying out computer generated 3d models and then want to bring their onscreen designs back to the real world. Results: large statues made of unexpected materials. Like cardboard for an instance 🙂 I don’t know who made the fist by the way…
Wouldn’t it be great to have a party and guests could just switch heads the whole time? This is made by Taras Lesko. I’m not sure if he uses Pepakura but I love the surreal edge of his work!
Also very lovable about Pepakura is the packaging of the program itself it looks as if you bought yourself a Commodore Amiga game 🙂
