Hanoi-Exhibition “Geometric Origami”
Opening: Dec 16, 4 pm
Exhibition: Dec 16 – 20, 8.30 am – 6 pm
Workshop: Dec 21, 10.30 am – 12 pm
Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam, 27 Quang Trung Str., Hoan Kiem Dist.
An exhibition by Professor MITANI JUN, University of Tsukuba.
Professor Mitani’s research includes computational origami design, or simply, origami designing with computer software. The spherical and 3D origami is a new-concept-origami, involving three dimensionality and even curved surfaces. This innovative origami is made possible by computing the completed form and the folding process with a software, leaping afar from the conventional origami process. It requires a unique method called “curved folding”, so it may be difficult to apply at first, but once successful, it produces a magical three dimensional shape that makes you wonder how it can be made by one sheet of paper.
