An introduction to Origami Showcase</i>
To the casual observer, the concept of origami may seem deceptively simple- taking a single sheet of paper and folding it into an animal, object, or something completely random.
That is the essence of origami- and yet if you look further, youll find that its so much more.
There are people out there who have invented impossibly complex models folded from a single square of paper; blending maths and art to bring amazing creations to life. Theres modular origami, where tens, hundreds or even thousands of paper units are folded and assembled together. Careful, precise folding combined with an eye for colour and design can result in absolutely stunning models.
Take a look around dA, or Flickr, and you might be surprised what you see.
Paper cranes are cool, but theres some really awesome stuff out there.
I hope that I can bring some of this to you through Origami Showcase.
