Strong mathematical minds at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology showed off their creativity and dexterity for the school’s fourth annual Student Origami Competition. rn
rnThe winning entries are on display at the school’s Wiesner Student Art Gallery through March 15. This model of MIT’s mascot, the beaver, was submitted by Brian Chan, a graduate student in mechanical engineering.
Freshman Jason Ku submitted an origami model of one of the Nazgul, or ringwraiths, from “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Ku’s entry won a prize for Best Original Model.
In addition to his beaver, Brian Chan submitted this katydid.
A pair of beetles: Chan folded the beetle on the left, and Ku’s creation is on the right.
“Guyver III,” also by Chan.
Aviv Ovadya created this alien for the competition, based on an original design by Fernando Gilgado.
