Creating A Balance Inspired by the book "Sadako and The Thousand Paper Cranes"
Author: Eleanor Coerr

In the Japanese Culture, The Crane is symbolic of health, hapiness, and peace. Legend has it that if you fold 1000 cranes your wish or prayer will be granted.
In the times we live, every day human conflict spreads and grows more severe, the environment grows more threatened. There is an overwhelming need to establish harmony in our world. We have to "Create a Balance".
The White, Yellow, Red and Black cranes were adapted from a different 1000 crane mobile created in 1992, as 1 of 10, for the Winnipeg International Children's Festival 10th anniversary by Children of the Earth School. They represent the North, East, West and South. The many-coloured cranes were chosen to represent all the people of the earth, the three levels of the mobile to represent, the air, land and water. The mobile to represent "Creating A Balance".
With our world and environment in ever increasing chaos and conflict, we have folded these cranes as a symbol of our prayer, that though events such as these, that all the peoples of the world will try to "Create A Balance" so we may all enjoy "Peace, Good Health and Happiness".
Here flies 1000 cranes as a gentle reminder for all to do their part in "Creating A Balance"
"Creating A Balance" is a 1 or 2 week long workshop that introduces students to the Art of Origami as a means of making a creative statement. Brian presents a history of the art of paper folding through storytelling and demonstrations. The students, through their creative efforts create a mobile sculpture. This brings the whole school together for a presentation focusing on the idea of "Creating A Balance" with nature, the environment and with each other.

62. Origami Japanese Paper Folding Story
As a teacher of origami (the ancient Japanese art of paper folding) at the LaFarge Lifelong Learning Institute in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Art Beaudry was asked
The woman didn't say a word as she slowly cupped her small hand around the fragile bird as if it were alive. When Art looked up at her face, he saw tears filling her eyes, ready to spill out. Finally the woman took a deep breath and said, "My husband died three weeks ago. This is the first time I've been out. Today . . ."she wiped her eyes with her free hand, still gently cradling the golden crane with the other. She spoke very quietly. "Today is our golden wedding anniversary." Then this stranger said in a clear voice. "Thank you for this beautiful gift. Now I know that my husband is at peace. Don't you see? That voice you heard. It's the voice of God and this beautiful crane is a gift from Him. It's the most wonderful 50th wedding anniversary present I could have received. Thank you for listening to your heart."
And that's how Art learned to listen very carefully when a little voice within him tells him to do something he may not understand at the time. ~Patricia Lorenz~ Submitted by Pat Merrill, Ed./Pub ENcourage

paper folding - origami It is not clear exactly when the art of origami , or Japanese paper-folding, started. Some schools of origami use tearing or cutting to create their figures. Today, origami paper is generally not torn (although some figures still require tearing to be made), and it is rare for origami to be colored after construction this is to emphasize the form and structure of the object. Origami is not just for fun; it has become a serious part of Japanese culture. Origami adorn gifts in Japanese traditional ceremonies and are also incorporated into the kimono . There are even schools that specialize in teaching origami Visit the Irasshai Launch Pad for more information related to this topic.

The tittle says "ultimate" but the contents are far from it. There's a modest selection of traditional models and several weak original models. The diagrams are clear and easy to follow. This book is geared to the beginner but is so limited in it's scope and quality of artistic expression that it does nothing to kindle an interest in origami. Try Easy Origami by Montrol for similar models, or better yet get The Joy of Origami or The World of Origami.

From simple 'grass' to complex striped zebras, this book has it all. I enjoyed making some of the more unique models, like the bee-eater and rhinoceros. Another nice thing about this book in particular is that the models are much different than what are in many other books. Because the theme is Africa, a lot of the a...

S TORY. In April 1988 I attended the 25th anniversary reunion of the Design Science program at Harvard University's Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts . Although I hadn't actually attended the program, let alone Harvard, I felt such kinship with this merry band of artist-mathematicians that I showed up anyway.
The program, founded by Harvard professor Arthur Loeb, is a uniquely interdisciplinary of 3d polyhedral geometry and sculpture. Equal parts art, mathematics and engineering, the program has produced one of the most interesting collection of alumnae I've ever seen. Talks at the event included: Peggy Weil talking about her vision of the Weatherium: a multi-story inverted polyhedral globe that you view from a platform floating on the inside, with a live projected image of earth's surface as seen from weather satellites.
Amy Edmundson, who wrote a most illuminating book about Buckminster Fuller's geometry called A Fuller Explanation, giving a hands-on workshop on building structures out of toothpicks and marshmallows. You quickly learn that in order to build anything stable you have to use triangulated structures like tetrahedra.

Origami Greetings and Gifts Company Testimonials News Careers ... Agents Definition
Origami is an ancient art of folding various mediums, most commonly paper. Other materials often folded are fabric, wire mesh, sheet metal, tissue, thin plastic, cardboard, and straws. The word comes from the combination of the Japanese verb oru (to fold) and the noun kami (paper). History
There are many different interpretations on the origin of origami. The common thread between the differing opinions is its parallel to the various countries' invention and development of paper. Ts'ai Lun of China invented paper in AD 105 using bamboo strips as a mold for strips of bark from a mulberry tree. This ancient secret was passed down from generation to generation and was kept strictly within China's borders for nearly 500 years. It is believed that in the late 6th century or the early 7th century, the art of papermaking was introduced into Japan. Some believe that paper folding was discovered first in China with the invention of paper and brought along to Japan when the art of papermaking was introduced. Others argue that origami is a Japanese invention claming that there are no known Chinese records of early paper folding. Regardless of the differing opinions, it is quite evident that the art of paper folding was most fully developed in Japan.

Links and resources for exploring these collapsible geometric paper models. Why origami? Origami is an essential tool in the exploration of mathematics and science. Origami demonstrates, in a very concrete way, the fact that simple shapes develop into complex patterns. You will see this over and over again in nature. Origami lets you bring it to your kitchen table. It begins with a square, one of the simplest of geometric shapes, and it ends...well, it doesn't. You can make anything with origami. Origami forms differ in complexity...young children can make the simplest forms. Complex constructions may require many years of practice and skill. We've only just begun our own explorations of origami, so I offer just a few resources for getting started.
