Did you know that the practice of folding paper is much older than the Japanese word origami?
Laura Rozenberg, the founder of the Museo del Origami in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, shares with us the interesting and unexpected story of how the word origami became the one we use when referring to the art of paper folding.
Visit the Origami Museum Video Library, where you will find a series of videos introducing renowned origami artists and researchers from around the world. The videos include English and Spanish subtitles.
This is another contribution of the museum, aimed at preserving and talking about the work and memory of historical and contemporary origami artists, as well as the history of paperfolding. Great work. Don’t miss it!
