4/11/11Philosophy of Origami
in Japan, word origami comes from Heian era. But it originally refers to a form of writing. In today's Japan, origami-tsuki (with origami) means authentic because connoisseurs write their appraisal on the origami since Edo era.
Japanese did not call paper folding origami in Japan until Showa era. Origami was called "orisue" or "orikata" in Edo era, and "orimono" from the end of Edo era to the early Showa era.
Origami is an art of paper folding . You can fold sheets of paper into ships, animals, or flowers. It's a lot of fun, especially for children.
The paper itself has some charm since it is made by someone with sincerity . So you should not spoil it when folding.
Origami resembles the cooking in this respect . As you should make the most of the nature of food in the cooking, you should make the most of the nature of paper in origami. And as the finest cuisine can be a moving fine art, origami can.
Origami resembles the theater in this respect . It can be highly complex models, such as a six-legged, four-winged & five-horned beetle, by folding a sheet of square paper. Remember, no one can elicit more than what the piece of paper embrace.
Scriptwriters in the theater are equivalent to designers in origami, actors to sheets of paper, and directors to folders. (source: http://origami.ousaan.com/library)
