I received a wonderful email from Aldo Tolino– ionoi on flickr- with a link to a YouTube video he created that teaches you how to crumple paper, Vincent Floderer-style.
He says that he learned this technique last year at the Salzburg Origami Masters exhibition, in a class taught by Paul Jackson. (who apparently taught this technique to Floderer, as well!)
I really can’t believe that it’s this easy to do! so much fun. This was my first attempt, using a spare napkin laying around the office kitchen.
Vincent Floderer was the first origami artist to use crumpling in this intense way. There was also shown some work of him at hangar7 in salzburg at the masters of origami exibithion. His website is french and here:
Thanks, Aldo! I really appreciate you sharing this video with me, it made it very easy to learn how to do this. It’s quite a bit of fun to do, and definitely stress relieving!
Floderer is most definitely the master of this technique, by far. He’s amazing.
Le meilleur moyen d’apprendre à apprendre, c’est encore d’apprendre.
The video is not available! Please, do you have it somewhere else?
