Présentation de l'éditeur
Origami5 continues in the excellent tradition of its four previous incarnations, documenting work presented at an extraordinary series of meetings that explored the connections between origami, mathematics, science, technology, education, and other academic fields.
The fifth such meeting, 5OSME (July 13–17, 2010, Singapore Management University) followed the precedent previous meetings to explore the interdisciplinary connections between origami and the real world. This book begins with a section on origami history, art, and design. It is followed by sections on origami in education and origami science, engineering, and technology, and culminates with a section on origami mathematics―the pairing that inspired the original meeting.
Within this one volume, you will find a broad selection of historical information, artists’ descriptions of their processes, various perspectives and approaches to the use of origami in education, mathematical tools for origami design, applications of folding in engineering and technology, as well as original and cutting-edge research on the mathematical underpinnings of origami.
Biographie de l'auteur
Patsy Wang-Iverson is Vice President for Special Projects at the Gabriella and Paul Rosenbaum Foundation. Introduced to origami as a child by her mother, her personal interest in origami merged in recent years with her work in helping to improve students' interest in and success with mathematics. She co-organized, with Eileen Tan and Benjamin Tan, the 2010 Fifth International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education (5OSME) plus a Folding Convention (PLUS!) at the Singapore Management University in Singapore.
Robert J. Lang has been an avid student of origami for some forty years and is now recognized as one of the world’s leading masters of the art. He is one of the pioneers of the cross-disciplinary marriage of origami with mathematics and organized the 2006 Fourth International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics, and Education at Caltech. He has consulted on applications of origami to medical devices, air-bag design, and space telescopes, is the author or co-author of twelve books and numerous articles on origami and lectures widely on the connections between origami, mathematics, science, and technology.
Mark Yim is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Previously, he was a Principal Scientist at the Palo Alto Research Center (formerly Xerox PARC). His group studies modular self-reconfigurable robots and has demonstrated robots that can transform into different shapes, jump, ride tricycles, climb stairs, poles and fences, manipulate objects and reassemble themselves. Collaborative work with researchers at Harvard, MIT and Berkeley include robotic self-folding origami. He has authored over 100 journal and conference papers and over 40 patents on topics ranging from robotics and videogame feedback devices to education and robotic performance art.

I very like the mix of kinds of SAPIENTIAE...
I want to go to the next OSME in Tokio - JP!
There are fascinating mathematical and complex articles like those on curved folding, woven origami tessellations, and the difficulties of crease pattern circle-packing.
Then there are the articles that are more accessible to the average origamist: how to teach origami to school children and success story or two in a tougher school system, studying types of paperfolding called Snapology and Twirl Designs, which are both accessible to anyone with rudimentary origami experience and an open mind.
A referenced history of origami is also good for someone who wants a "fuller" image of what is currently going on in the international origami community, which is larger than the average person seems to know.
This book is the perfect resource for anyone with some origami experience, enjoys higher-level mathematics, or simply is curious to really get to know what the speakers in the documentary "Between the Folds" were talking about.
