[+] Artistic origami design: Jason Ku designs, other materials (dollars, cardboard, hydro, metal, polypropylene), tessellations, Tess, connected cranes, modular origami, business card cubes.

This class covers even more examples of artistic origami design:
  • Origami designs by Jason Ku (Lecture 5's guest lecturer)
  • Different materials: dollar bills, cardboard, Hydro-Folding, sheet metal, and polypropylene (a type of plastic)
  • Tessellations: folding in a repeated pattern
  • Tess, software for designing certain tessellations
  • Connected cranes, an old Japanese tradition of folding multiple cranes from a slit sheet of paper
  • Modular origami: geometric forms from multiple repeated units
  • Business card cube folding (hands on!)
