Musical Origami

Craft & Design Paper Crafts

Collin @ MAKE points us to this clever interactive artwork: “Fold Loud” by JooYoun Paek (NYC) is a musical toy played by making folds to complete various electrical contacts. The design uses conductive fabric and threads to perform on the flexible paper surface. It uses human voices, and when multiple contacts are made, they harmonize. Check out the video on her site.
