This video is just astounding… 

Dubai-based father Rohith Rao has created a delight for the eyes in his origami project that went live on Monday, August 8. He credits the inspiration to his 7-year-old daughter Vipanchi, whose dream has always been to see the world’s biggest origami.

The video displays classic origami constructions edited into popular Dubai spots. It starts with paper swans in front of Atlantis and goes on to show paper planes whizzing past Sheikh Zayed road, giant boats on the beach next to Burj Al Arab and much more.

Rohith claims to have used Maya, a professional 3D software for generating realistic characters and effects to create the models. He also attributed his post-production and tracking to Adobe After Effects.

So, what exactly is digital art?
