Paper folding is a very hands-on art. Rather than simply making the paper sculptures, these artists created a story using origami and stop-motion animation. Art takes a 3D, time-consuming process to completion in each of these examples — some are short, but still in a way tell a beautiful tale of patience and creativity.

Several of these pieces are folded by Joseph Wu, who is a master at the art. You’ll find his link at the bottom. It’s definitely worth a look to check out his gallery.
