Nice, I have been wanting to make something like this for an age, when I get started, I might just have to bug you if I get stuck Grin

i've been doing origami for a while, starting with cranes, then some modular stuff. this isnt technically origami though cause there's glue involved. i think my dorm is pretty awesome too (i go to mit).

Looks awesome. I have a pattern that I plan to make into a lamp eventually but it's low on my priorities.

I'm worried about putting paper next to a hot light-bulb though. The instructions mention fire retardant spray but I'd still be nervous about burning down my building.

yeah i couldn't find fire retardant spray anywhere but it's not hanging so i don't think the paper will touch the lightbulb. i just make sure to turn it off when i leave the room.
