Intro to Origami


Origami is a traditional art originating from Japan, and it translates into paper folding (“ori” means fold and “kami” means paper). However, it has much more meaning than these two plain words. After Akira Yoshizawa, often called the grandfather of origami, turned the simple children’s activity into an art form, making thousands of complex models. Later artists often incorporated mathematical properties into the art , and luckily, I passed geometry, enabling me to understand these concepts. As origami continues to be a beautiful form of expression, I often look to it for enjoyment. The flying pig shown above is of my own design and one of my favorite models to fold.
