Example text

But the complex elephant is almost assuredly not the most complex elephant possible. Complexity in origami is an open-ended scale; the title of “most complex” origami design (for any subject) is always transitory. Furthermore, complexity carries with it a special burden. We do not denigrate the one-crease model for its abstraction; indeed, its abstract nature is part of its elegance and charm. 42 Origami Design Secrets, Second Edition But a complex model creates a certain level of expectation in the viewer: an expectation that the model will convey a richer vision.

6. Fold and unfold on the near flap. Each crease lies directly over a folded edge. 7. Fold corner D down while pulling points A and C out to the sides; flatten. E B B B C A C D 9. Reverse-fold the two bottom points out to the sides. C A C D 10. Narrow the two points with valley folds in front and behind. E A D 13. Fold the corners down and turn the model over. A 8. Turn the paper over. B A D 11. Fold point E down. C E A D 12. Fold point B down. C D 14. Curve the tusks. 15. Finished Elephant’s Head.

In fact, technical folding has its own name in Japan: origami sekkei. It is difficult to pin down a unique characteristic of a model that defines it as origami sekkei, but I have a candidate criterion: A fold is a technical fold when its underlying structure shows clear evidence of intentional design. The first steps of design, however, do not require use of any specialized techniques or mathematical theorems. Anyone who can fold origami can design origami. In fact, if you folded one of the three elephant designs, you were calling upon your design skill.
