Benjamin Parker will blow your mind with his origami tessellations. Pictured above is his Light Blue Tessellation, folded from one hexagonal sheet of dyed Zanders Elefantenhaut paper and sewn to a piece of mat board. Based in Connecticut, Benjamin has been making origami since he was 6 years old, and it shows. Check out the rest of his offerings in his Makers Market shop online and for more eye candy, check out his Flickr photostream. The detail on these pieces is astounding. Here’s a closeup of another of his pieces:

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
