Product description

About the Author

Tung Ken Lam is a well-known origami creator, best known for "Jitterbug" and "WXYZ" inspired by the works of graphic artist MC Escher, architect/designer/polymath R Buckminster Fuller and origami creators such as Tomoko Fuse, Paul Jackson, Dave Brill, Dave Mitchell and Robert Neale. First introduced to origami as a child, he developed his interest through the books of Robert Harbin, Eric Kenneway, Kunihiko Kasahara, Samuel Randlett and John Montroll. "Origami crosses the boundaries of art, craft, play, mathematics, puzzles and practical geometry. The possibilities of folding paper seem limited, but these limitations have inspired creativity and imagination. Paper might seem an everyday material but it's magical to turn it into something unique just by folding. Following instruction to make someone else's origami work is akin to experiencing the folder's worldview and their act of creation." A member of the British Origami Society who has edited its magazine and publications, he has completed several commercial and educational origami commissions involving origami over the last 20 years. Although best know for modular origami, he has created animals, human figures and faces, tessellations and quirky subjects like a convincing hand with four finger and a thumb. He has taught origami in Britain, Europe, USA and Asia in schools, shopping centres, science and cultural festivals and many other venues. He co-authored "Learning Mathematics with Origami" with Sue Pope; published by the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, it was one of their top three bestsellers of 2016.
