Marc Fichou is folding sharks, birds, foxes and all kinds of other animals out of a colored, squared paper. His intention is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent. This naturally led him towards origami because of the reversible character of its folding process: each can be unfolded back to its initial two-dimensional square, and in so doing retain the physical marks of its creases. The final piece is an unfolded photograph, where folds in the picture blend with the real folds, thus blurring the line between image and matter.

Mind Bending With A 1 Dollar Bill.

I know so many people with their own conspiracy theories, and wild thoughts on the U.S. government and their theorized “underhanded” tactics.  If that wasn’t enough, I’ve got a handful of friends who are all over the Illuminati the Knights Templar, and Free Masons.  So I’ve been familiar with all too many tricks with revealing messages with folding a dollar bill in a certain way.  But when I saw a series of photos using the same trick to produce some wild images, I was impressed.  It just goes to show, with some creativity and folding, the George Washington emblazoned bill can produce some rather entertaining and thought provoking messages.
