Origami is the ancient art of paper folding. Starting with a single square sheet of paper, without cutting, without gluing, it seems to be a very constrained artistic or craft activity. These constraints are not an obstacle to creativity: there are nowadays plenty of origami creations along with traditional models. New folded models are still produced continuously, especially during national and international origami conventions, often driven by origami associations.
In this workshop, you will learn to fold an origami model among simple and intermediate classical designs, and to discover some more original displayed models. Paper to fold will be available, so no preparation is required!
Wish to have a previous taste of what is origami? Try to have a glance at origami galleries on the web, and association web sites, as: http://mfpp-origami.fr/ or http://www.britishorigami.info/ for instance.
David Dureisseix entered the Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan, France) in 1988, and received the Agregation in Mechanics in 1991. Its research activities began in the Mechanics and Technology Laboratory. He defended his Ph.D. thesis in 1997, and became Assistant Professor at ENS Cachan. After being Professor University Montpellier 2 in the Mechanics and Civil Engineering Laboratory, he took a Professor position at INSA Lyon, France, as head of the Contact and Structure Mechanics laboratory from 2011 to 2015. Apart from his research activities in computational mechanics, high performance computing, multiscale and multiphysics problems, nonsmooth mechanics and biomechanics, he is also member of national origami associations and is more recently involved in computational origami.
