Web “Origami Art Museum”

by

Japan Origami Academic Society

 

As an art where the specific shape is obtained by folding paper, origami has become popular throughout races, genders, and ages in many countries.  While many traditional models that express their subjects’ distinguishing shapes in simple form have been passed down, a lot of representational works that reproduce the subjects’ suitable shapes as accurate as possible have been created since 1980s.  Theoretical researches to design such realistic models have also been developed.  Moreover, potential of origami is getting recognized in various fields; folding materials other than paper in Engineering, teaching Geometry by folding paper, recovering functions of impaired fingers, and so on.  Aiming at maintaining and developing the origami culture by not only presenting origami models folded in play or art but also introducing different possibilities of origami, Origami Art Museum was founded by Japan Origami Academic society in 2014.

「秘伝千羽鶴折形」の再現

 

August 10, 2014 - 

 

日本で刊行された現存する世界最古の遊戯折り紙に関する出版物である「秘伝千羽鶴折形」を日本折紙学会の若手会員を中心に再現ならびに本文の解釈と翻訳を試みています。

この本の詳細を海外に分かりやすく紹介するとともに、近年精力的に折り紙作品を創作している若手オリガミアンに折り紙の古典に触れる機会を与えたいと考え、この特別展示「秘伝千羽鶴折形の再現」を企画しました。
