Transcript of Origami

About origami
Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started at 17nth century A.D at the latest and was popularized outside Japan in the mid-1900’s. It has since changed into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to turn a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture. Ori- meaning folding. Kami- meaning paper (Kami changes to gami due to Rendaku)
Different types of Origami
•Action origami
•Modular origami
•Pure -land origami
•Wet fold origami

The history of Origami
This is a wet folded origami frog. The process of wet-folding allows the folder to keep a curved shape alot easier. It also reduces the number of wrinkles. Wet-folding allows for increased rigidity and structure due to a process called sizing. As the paper dries, the chemical bonds the fibers of the paper tighter together which results in crisp and stronger sheet. In order to moisten the paper, an artist wipes the sheet with a dampened cloth. The amount of moisture added to the paper is crucial, because too little will cause the paper to dry quickly and spring back into its original position before the folding is complete, but too much will make the edges of the paper fray or will cause the paper to split at high-stress points.
"Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut; cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami. Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes, or orchid blossoms." from wikipedia
"In Japan, the earliest reference to a paper model is in a short poem by Ihara Saikaku (a Japanese Poet) in 1680 which describes paper butterflies in a dream. Origami butterflies were used during the celebration of Shinto weddings to represent the bride and groom, so paper folding had already become a big part of Japanese ceremony by Heian period of Japanese history." from Wikipedia. (The Heian period was the last division of classical Japanese history and Shinto is the indigenous spirituality of Japan and the people of Japan).
