Origami - art or science?

What did you think? Please explain your answer.

I think it's an art AND a science. I think it's an art because it is hard and people are always thinking up new ways of making it look really good or realistic. I think it's a science because you would have to work it out before you started off and because it's so complex. If any of that doesn't really seem like explaining it to you, well, it was hard to put into words, ok?

Origami, im not going to give any info from anywhere i'll just give my opinon,
In the old days origami was used for decoration and holding secret notes no one could open without ripping. These days it is usually used for decoration also, so the answer to your question mr woody is really both.
because, i mean we use origami mainly art but the way we do that art is through maths and science.
But come to think of it origami isnt just used for pretty decoration it used in technology to e.g car airbags
so anyway i would still have to say both

it is art and not really a science because you can make amazing objects. where is science is investagating biological stuff.

hmmm, thats a tough one. I think origami is both science and art. Science because, as siggles said, its so complex, but also an art, because it's so creative, and cool.

dan said...

I REALLY THINK IT IS ART BUT IT IIS WAY MORE MATH THEN ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE THERE IS LOTS OF ANGLES.

Urxan said...

Good point Dan. I think of it mainly as an art that uses math. But, when you think about it, pretty much all art uses math. When you are painting someone, you're judging all their proportions, aren't you? Math! Shame I'm not actually much of a fan of it, huh?

Boo hoo, why does maths have to be included in everything in life, why????? What if life had no maths, how would we survive??

Jess said...

I think its a mixture of both because if u know nothing about about science then it will be harder to remeber how to fold and if your not the most talented artisit it might be harder for you to fold straight lines and be creative with your origami! But like dan said it also has alot to do with math!

young veteran said...

well i disagre with laffydaffy, it is both. becose you have the art in the decoration part, but you also have measuring and estamaition.
p.s. sorry for eny spelling problems.

What do you mean there is lots of angels?

magster said...

Oh! i get it angels! like corners and stuff i thought you meant angles
(tehe!)

Mr Woody said...

they did mean angles, you semi- literate eejits. they spelt it wrong and wrote 'angels', which are the little wingy harp playing dudes who float around heaven.
