TUTORIAL: Origami Peacock Paper Perfect On February 4, 2014, Robert Lang joined Joshua Foer onstage at the Institute Library in New Haven, Connecticut, as part of the ongoing series “Amateur Hour,” in which various tinkerers, zealots, and collectors discuss their obsessions. Lang is recognized as one of the pioneers of the marriage of origami with mathematics and technology. He is the author of numerous books, including Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami, coauthored with Meher McArthur. The conversation that follows was recorded live and has been edited for brevity and meaning. Joshua Foer: I want to start by asking you about how you made a name for yourself in the field of origami. Yes, the cuckoo clock. Just so we’re all clear about the terms here: That was folded with one uncut sheet of paper—​no glue? No glue. How big was the paper? A one-​by-​ten-​foot rectangle. How long did it take you to fold? I worked on the design over a period of two to three months and worked on folding parts of it little by little.

Chinese Zodiac Origami Tiger Folding Instructions - How to make an Origami Tiger This origami tiger is folded from two pieces of origami paper. Orange makes a good base color (unless of course, you're doing a white tiger). According to the Chinese Zodiac calendar, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger. The Tiger is the 3rd of 12 Chinese Zodiac signs. Other Chinese Zodiac signs are the rat, ox, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Made this origami? Start by making the head of the origami cow. Right before you fold the ears forward, stop. Looking at the pictures below, we are actually going to fold the ears across each other. At the same time, we will flatten (broaden) the tiger's face, with our thumb and fingers (photo 3). Origami Tiger You may prefer a small piece of tape between the ears to hold them in place. Use a key or similar object to open the tiger's ears slightly. Now crease and tear off about half of the lower part of the tiger's neck. Unfold the torn part and lay it flat; we'll use it to make the tiger's tail. Origami, it's Greeaaat!

Magazine - Article Over a muggy June weekend, more than 600 paper-folding enthusiasts from around the globe are gathered in New York for the annual Origami USA conference. The late-'50s-era classrooms at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Chelsea, where the conference is being held, are a study in beige, from the linoleum to the walls to the dressmakers' mannequins kibitzing in a corner. In one, 20 students ranging in age from 9 to mid-60s wait eagerly, packs of brightly colored paper spread out before them on the long, narrow tables. Their instructor for this course, Robert Lang, notes that the turnout is impressive, considering he didn't provide a sample of the model they'd be folding for the display downstairs in the great hall. "This could have been a killer insect class," he says drolly. Prior to about the 1980s, origami arthropod designs were thought to be all but impossible. When the session ends and classes spill into the hallway, Lang is greeted like a rock star.
