The strategic life-simulation computer game Sims was the main inspiration for French collective Paper Donuts’ “breakfast out of paper” photoshoot. The collective decided to use a girl as the Sims character to show what a Sims-breakfast would look like in real life.
Artist Taras Lesko has always had a passion for creating something with his hands, and that shows in these paper craft models. Usually he uses motives like action figures and robots from Play Station games or anime movies, but that hasn’t stopped him from making other things out of paper, like his own self portrait.
For French Insurance company directed and animated this spot to address the desire to remain relevant in a constantly advancing world. The spot highlights the rapid evolution of mankind by showcasing an origami man transforming himself into some of the most important inventions throughout history.
Origami (from oru meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper, or in this case, a single dollar bill, hence the name “money origami.” The creativity of the little critters that people have designed from their currency is astounding: the one-eyed crab below is even borderline frightening.
