Computational Origami

Several years ago, I ran across this article in the New York Times which introduced me to the field of computational origami. I was fascinated. I remember being amazed that such beautiful forms could be made from folded paper. From that point onward, I became interested in math and its fingerprint in the shapes and forms occurring in nature… the spirals in seashells, the patterns in a flower’s petals, the shapes of feathers and leaves, the branching angle of arteries. Tonight’s movie ‘Between the Folds’ reminded me of this.
