On Sept 21, Mathematician and Origami master, David Kandel shared with the class what seemed like over one hundred different types of origami styles and configurations. From Modular Origami to Origami Tessellations.
The goal, we learned, is to transform a flat sheet square of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. Modern origami practitioners generally discourage the use of cuts, glue, or markings on the paper.
The sculptural possibilities are endless, as Kandel showed us.
After absorbing the myriad of examples, we took to creating our own origami figures.
After the hands on Origami workshop, students learned how to generate code through the Rhino plug-in Grasshopper which could eventually be laser cut to produce a 3D dFab Origami figure.
