Epic Origami


travispines

When complex mathematical algorithms meet traditional Japanese paper folding you create the potential for engineering design innovation.  By linking core sciences with artistic practice it is possible to devise methods to save lives and explore the universe as outlined by this specific example.  Although the delicate shapes created by origami appear artistic they are, at their foundation, formed from a strong layer of math.  Incredible shapes and designs can be created beyond a simple animal shape or a paper airplane.  Engineers currently use algorithms use in origami to determine the best way to fold airbags for optimum deployment and astronomers use them to compute the optimum configurations of space telescope lenses.

About bluepearlgirl's world

Hello. My actual name is Emelie. I am an artist in San Francisco. I started out my early life deep in the Santa Cruz mountains. I left Santa Cruz shortly after graduating High School in 1992 and moved up to the city. I have been in sf ever since and more specifically Bernal Hts. since 2009. I work in a number of mediums usually depending on the space i have to work in. In SF that can vary greatly! I look forward to sharing my thoughts, observations and photos with you all. Hopefully at the very least i will give you a little chuckle once and a while. Thank you for stopping and reading my little blog. I encourage all who stops by to leave comments. I will read them all and appreciate the time you spend with me! Sincerely to you all! Emelie (aka, Bluepearlgirl) To see some of my artwork, please check out www.artwanted.com/emelie ........... Another blogger Mskatiekins sums my blog up pretty well... here is what she said.... "BluePearlGirl’sWorld – This is one diverse blog.
