Recently many designers have looked to the art of origami as a way of creating more interesting Avatars, Backgrounds and Icons, but its true beginnings are strictly offline and have been alive for 1,000s of years. The name comes from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”. It started in the 17th century AD in Japan and is the practice of creating a sculpture out of a flat piece of paper, the use of cutting or glue renders the finished piece as excluded from being real origami.

This post was born out of a long trip on two Virgin Trains from one end of England – Scotland to the West Coast of England – Brighton, some months ago. Before the trip I was deciding what to do for the time it would take me, I had already counted out my iPhone as I did not want to spend money downloading a few movies. I came across a book of origami in an old book store in Edinburgh and flicking through the pages, decided that this was what i would do on route. Origami is not an easy art and I must say that many of my attempts were awful, but the very action of folding and unfolding the paper is almost cathartic and definitely served to keep me entertained on my journey.
