- THE GEOMETRICAL WORLD OF ORIGAMI
THE GEOMETRICAL WORLD OF ORIGAMIPRINT THIS PAGE
What is origami?
Most people associate it with a guided instruction of folding sequences or they think about the funny folded elephants and birds.
The art of folding is severly underestimated. The possibilities of origami go far beyond funny figures of animals. In this lecture, a short mathematical introduction of the axiomatic geometry of origami will be portrayed. While folding squared paper according to the methods of origami, the audience can themselves try to solve mathematical problems such like the Delian problem or the trisection of an angle. The lecture will be linked to some general facts about origami and the process nowadays. Mathematical knowledge isn't necessary to take part in or to enjoy this exposé; while diving deep into the world of origami, we'll reach the point where art and mathematics meet eachother.
