To continue the origami how-to video fun, here’s a new one from my partner Ioana Stoian showing how to fold a cute origami cat designed by Roberto Gretter and Ioana during the Polish origami convention earlier this year. What a fun little cat! And it’s based on 60 degree angles, which for geometers like me is particularly satisfying… I saw this fantastic little 4:30 minute documentary on Bobby Jaber, a retired chemistry teacher who has spent the last 20 years working with porcelain to represent geometric shapes and solids. It’s beautiful artwork and well worth seeing. It reminds me a lot of Shuzo Fujimoto, a Japanese chemistry teacher who decided to fold paper to help represent chemical structures for his students; he was one of the first origami tessellation masters, and his explorations became the basis for most of what exists in the origami tessellation world these days.
