My experience with origami started and ended with a third-grade project that left me in tears. But seeing this origami masterpiece by Japanese artist Wataru Itou, who spent four years building it, made me want to take another stab at the art form. Perhaps the most amazing part of this massive project is the small list of supplies the artist used: knives, scissors, hole punches and modeling glue. It makes your DIY endeavors seem like a cinch, doesnt it? And as if the design werent enough, the small city actually has real electrical lighting, complete with a color shifting system and moving parts. Special touches, like cranes and construction equipment, were added to make the entire structure look like a work in progress. In addition, just like a real city, there are a plethora of sidewalks, paths and doorways. Honestly, who wouldnt be impressed by this masterpiece? It makes any project seem possible.
