Rainbow Origami Radiates in Massive Installations the World Over

All too often, origami is only considered (and beloved) as tiny individual creations—you know, a swan here, a fish there. But origami has the potential to intoxicate the eye in spirals and sweeps when amassed as a rainbow installation, something I now realize doesn’t happen enough at all and should exist everywhere all the time. One folded paper beauty becomes many, so it becomes a stunning epic masterpiece.

French artist Mademoiselle Maurice enriches a solid batch of countries with a spreading, splattering of colors. Born and raised in Savoy and now in Paris, she caught the intrigue of origami after spending a year in Japan. Illuminating as vibrant chaos sometimes and detailed with assassin-like precision other moments,Mademoiselle Maurice arranges brightly colored origami across streets and museums alike.

See her gloriously fun work below.
