View sketch page for source code.

This program is an optimisation and modification of the fabulous Origami Butterfly by Kyle McDonald, which in turn is a modification of the Origami Butterfly Method by Jonathan McCabe.

I haven’t changed (at least not that I’m aware of, and not intentionally!) the actual image process, just the implementation and how the the paper folds are determined – well, the last fold, anyhow, which I’ve animated,

The modifications to the implementation resulted in a massive speed gain (about 3x the original), enough to have “smooth” animations instead of one still image every two seconds. The “animation” I have done is pretty basic, and might be extended in future to animate more than the last fold, or to animate that fold in some other manner.

Oh, and I added another source texture – a photo of Funckarma at Plastic People in Shoreditch that I took last year. Neon glow FISK. Awwww yeahhhh. :o)
