The origami Jackson Cube is created by Paul Jackson. As with all modular origami, you need to make multiple pieces of 1 unit and then assemble them.
Since this is a cube, you need to make 6 pieces of the same unit using 6 sheets of origami paper. We used 3 colors and folded 2 units of each color. It is even simpler than the other cube we have on this site!
Here's what the origami Jackson cube looks like:
We didn't see any need to show you how to fold this because Mr. Jackson himself shows you how to fold it in the video below!
