Origami Darkness Dragon 2.0! (sort of)

Designed by Tadashi Mori - [video tutorial]

Ok this is my first animal/beast thing ever, and I learnt pretty much instantly that standard paper (about 80gsm) is still way to thick for a model like this, it becomes evident in the legs, body, horns, tail, pretty much everything, if you click the tutorial link you’ll see how awesome its actually supposed to turn out..

but yeah main point; I need some thinner paper, like insanely thin, but alas I am still proud of this since its a super hard model and I still finished it anyway, so yeah, go me, at least the face looks aight

Folded by me, no glue, made from one 30x30cm 80gsm square.

"This paradox between our affluence as consumers and our precariousness as workers poses economic, political, and moral conundrums. If we can produce more with less, and workers become redundant, who will buy the goods? A robot can make a mobile phone but it cannot purchase one. Workers are also consumers. Fire your workers, your profits will rise until the day no one can afford to buy your product. Henry Ford was a visionary for paying his workers enough so they could buy his cars. Ultimately, our production possibilities frontier and so our societal wealth is determined by our level of technology. That keeps expanding. Thus every year we should be richer. Each generation should be better off than its parents. That we are not is a problem of distribution."

The Central Paradox of the 21st Century (via azspot)

I think ultimately this is an argument about the sustainability of capitalism. The progress of technology is a key factor but it’s not the issue.

If William Shakespeare wrote Star Wars…

Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter.
