5 TED Talk Every Origami Enthusiast Must Watch

1.  Robert Lang is a pioneer of the newest kind of origami — using math and engineering principles to fold mind-blowingly intricate designs that are beautiful and, sometimes, very useful.

2. Origami is great, but what if we could use it as a starting point to create a new, sustainable, structural material for consumer products? Speaker Ata Sina is doing just that and tells us how his love of art and engineering have combined to lead him on this path to innovation.

3. In her talk, Nervan inspired the audience with the live performance of Origami, when she showed them how to fold papers step by step until they created the shape of an old game.

4. Mariah is a senior at SMU from McKinney, Texas, majoring in civil engineering. Mariah enjoys art, working with children, and mission work. After graduation she plans to attend graduate school.

5. A zen painting directly captures the soul of the subject in a few brush strokes. A haiku tells a story with a few words. Can simple sheets of paper tell a story or depict a complex idea? Can some simple folds be worth a thousand words? Origami artist Giang Dinh shares his geographic and artistic journey to finding essence.
