Folding paper into three-dimensional objects – better known as “origami” (Jap. oru = fold, kami = paper) – has ranked as an art form in Japan since the 14th century. In origami, speed is not important, nor does it matter who creates the most beautiful object.
The aim is to become immersed in the creative process and to complete the task with precision. Origami helps a person to develop mindfulness, train one’s fine motor skills, and learn to recognize geometric relationships.
