    In truth, it was built when David and I were in 7th or 8th grade, around 2001 or so. I was a beginning origamist and thought of the idea of making a blown-up model of the classic origami cube, so David (my best friend) and I used his Dad Jim's giant photo paper, which we cut to squares measuring approximately 6' 8" to a side. I though of the idea and it was only with my knowledge of origami that David and I built it together. Contact me for more details.

  • Eran Hornick was the planner and designer; built together by Eran Hornick and David Webber
