Art Meets Geometry--Origami

It is amazing what a piece of paper could be given life to become a three dimensional creation--and origami artists have mastered this art form. I came across this postcard in Japantown, which led me to visit the origami exhibit at the National Japanese American Historical Society located at 1684 Post Street. One of my favorites is the "Peace Sphere" by artistLinda Mihara. The sphere is formed by connected origami cranes, all of which folded from one piece of paper with strategic cuts to leave the negative space between the cranes. An additional origami exhibit is held concurrently at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch at 100 Larkin Street. The last day for both exhibits is December 31, 2008.
