TED Talks: Robert Lang: Idea + square = origami

I’ve always had a love for origami. I’ve made a few basic objects before and love giving it as a present. If I think about it origami for me was always a kid thing. It holds the wonders of a child. It is simplicity, creative and was inspired by nature.

Well this talk presented origami in all it’s splendar. I really had no idea just how far origami had advanced and the contributions it makes in solving scientific problems. Very cool.

Robert Lang’s Web Site

This site is great (www.langorigami.com) because it pays attention to both disciplines of origami, the artistic side and the scientific side. You’ll understand more after you watch the talk but for those on the science side there is a lot of explanation and the extra ordinary contribution is Robert’s computational works he gives out free for your own origami desires.

I find the crease patterns to be art alone.


Creative inspiration for sure!

Amazing representations of artwork on his portfolio site blublu.org. One particular animation that has been making the WWW rounds this past week is his MUTO animation. It’s an amazing example of Rigor.
