Attack of the Kraken by chosetec Attack of the Kraken by chosetec
Folded from an uncut square of paper.
Now on view at the Peabody Essex Museum until June 2008.

I re-folded "Attack of the Kraken" for the Origami Now! Exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum ([link]). Needless to say, this second version is a lot better. The original sheet of paper is a 55" square of Origamido paper ([link]).

for crease pattern, see here: [link]

working time, ~40 hours.

The kraken is awesome as is the weathered look of the sails! I'm sorry I missed the exhibit at the PEM.

There will some origami on exhibit in Japantown (San Francisco, CA) and some at the Newton Library (MA) later this year. I'll post a journal about it.

Is the water also part of the one square or is it just the kraken and the ships? I mean, it's still quite amazing either way...

Is that wet-folding?
