I remember playing Space Invaders in the arcade machines in cafés when I was a kid. :-) This origami mosaic is one of the Space Invaders from the video game. It is made of 130 origami pixels. Each origami pixel is folded from a 7x7 cm square that I cut from copy paper. An A4 size sheet of copy paper will give you 12 squares.
Space Invader mosaic made from origami pixels.
In the last decade, a French artist that goes by the nickname "Invader" has been creating Space Invaders mosaics with real porcelain tiles that he glues in the streets all over the world. There are many in Paris, but invaders have reached a lot of different cities all around the world too. Have you seen some of them?
I hope you will love origami pixels as much as I do! :-) Please send me pictures of your origami mosaics so that I can show them on this site and in my future videos. Thank you!

Origami Pixels is a new fun and easy way to make origami tiles that can be joined by folding (no cut, no glue, not tape) to compose beautiful origami mosaics. This type of origami pixels was invented by 2017 by Stéphane Gigandet, and other types have been designed before. The Origami Pixel Unit page tells more about the history of origami pixels and shows how to fold them and join them.

It is very easy and quick to fold squares of paper into colorful origami pixels. You can then draw with them, and join them by folding them on their back to create beautiful origami mosaics. It's fun and easy! Video demo and tutorial: Origami Mosaics with Origami Pixels You can also combine the square pixels with triangular trixels tiles: Origami Trixels tutorial.
