The purpose of this club is to expose people to the joys of paper folding. It is a way for students to get together and develop the common hobby of origami. Concepts of origami will be approached from both the aesthetic aspect and the mathematical aspect. Both traditional and nontraditional kinds of origami will be explored.
CU in Origami benefits the school community by adding to campus diversity. It brings the fields of art and mathematics together and helps students to be able to visualize two dimensional patterns as three dimensional shapes. It also demonstrates that there can be aesthetic qualities in mathematics, and that mathematics lies behind the aesthetic. This concept is likely to bring students from the three majors closer together, as origami has applications in art, architecture, and engineering.
