Today's Digital Mural

Origami

Origami, the art of paper folding, is commonly associated with Japanese culture, but separate traditions existed in China and Europe for hundreds of years as well.

Carefully folded, a single piece of paper can take on any shape you’re willing to work out. A particularly imaginative and skilled artisan—one like origami master Satoshi Kamiya—can design unbelievably complex figures such as the praying mantis on today’s mural.
