White elephant

Posted on March 2, 2014

As an ultimate prove that there are no limits to what can be made out of a uncut square piece of paper Sipho Mabona plan to fold a life-size replica of an elephant. Over the course of several weeks the monumental sculpture is folding at the Art Museum in Beromünster, Switzerland. A team of three assistants were supporting him on this mission.

During December 2013 he started campaing on Indiegogo (one od the most famous web portals for creative and inovative people needing some cash for reaching their goals) that should help him collect enouhg founds to at first build this huge piece of paper to create this amazing paper sculpture. Found were settled, now work needs to be done.

Using a sheet measuring 15 by 15 meters (50 by 50 feet), Mabona and his team will create an elephant standing more than 3 meters (10 feet) tall. Further more they were installing two cameras which were feeding footage to an online live video stream, so everybody can watch them folding it.

Mabona is known for his talent across the origami world. His colorful Koi fish as well as other animals have been exhibited in multiple galleries and museums.

Project starts, so lets wait to see how it will end.
