In most time, origami is associated with sharp and precise folding. However, Vietnamese artist Hoàng Tiến Quyết shies away from this rigidity, instead he produces curved paper forms using a difficult technique known as “wet-folding”. As the name suggests, water is involved, and it’s used to soften the paper during the folding process, so that curving line instead of the typical straight lines can be created. With this technique, Quyết can give his paper animal more personality, making them looks like malleable even though the pieces dry into hardened forms. Like those unusual origami works?

Blue, purple, black, various colors and shapes, fungi’s world is more attractive than flowers for some people but the only problem is they are too humble to be in the spotlight. But thanks to the people like Steve Axford (previously) who use their cameras to bring the magical world of fungi in front of our eyes. Axford lives and works in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia where he often has to travel no further than his own “back yard” to make some of the discoveries you see here. And Axford believe that some of the mushrooms he finds may never have been documented by scientists before!
