Feb 10, 2010: Mini-Origami
If you've ever tried Origami (paper folding from Japan), you know it's difficult to plan and to execute.

I've made a flock of cranes over the years, but never went that tiny!

The boy is really good at origami, used to make stuff constantly, with anything from real origami paper to candy wrappers. He's good at teaching others how to make stuff, better than written instructions.

I used to be a ghost origami folder back in the 70s. My (Japanese) mother had an origami show on the local TV station, BTV-6 Ballarat. I'd come home from school and she'd be about to go in to the studio, and she'd dash in from work and say "quick! make me 5 frogs!" or whatever. She would demonstrate how to make one on the show, and mine would be the display of different sizes and colours afterwards. Frogs are still my favourite, and I also make them in waiting rooms and restaurants. I used to like to make them with the silver or gold paper that you pull out of a new pack of cigarettes (thin, but holds the creases wonderfully) but hardly meet anyone with fags anymore, let alone when they're opening a new pack.

I just made this instead of shovelling the drive. Not quite as small, but no toothpicks or tweezers. Now I really must go and shovel....
monster Wednesday Feb 10 08:06 PM
