Event description
"Origami is not simply a pastime but has tremendous potential in the fields of art and 3D polygonal design."

About this Event

The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur with the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan and Origami Academy in Malaysia is organising a “3D Origami Lecture and Workshop” event in Georgetown, Penang and Kuala Lumpur.

The lecturer, Prof. MITANI Jun who will visit Malaysia for this project as Japan Cultural Envoy for the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan is from the computer science department at the Graduate School of Systems and Information Engineering, University of Tsukuba. He combines various paper folding methods such as multiple folds, where a regular pattern is folded repeatedly, and curved folds to create shapes that were not possible in traditional origami. He will show that origami is not simply a pastime but has tremendous potential in the fields of art and 3D polygonal design by exposing participants to the techniques of “3D Origami.”

About Prof. MITANI Jun

Prof. MITANI Jun, who applies computer graphics to the field of computer science at the Graduate School of Systems and Information Engineering, Tsukuba University and specializes in designing 3D polygonal models using computer graphics, has made the world of “3D Origami” even more profound. Unconstrained by the simple folds used in conventional origami, he has combined various folding methods such as multiple folds, where a regular pattern is folded repeatedly, and curved folds to create shapes that were not possible in traditional origami. The aim of this program is to show that origami is not simply a pastime but has tremendous potential in the fields of art and 3D polygonal design by exposing participants to the techniques of “3D Origami.”
