What is origami?

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of folding paper. Origami can transform a single sheet of paper into all sorts of amazing objects. Traditionally origami is made from a single square sheet of paper and does not require any cutting or gluing. While modern origami has departed from these strict rules a bit, the vast majority of origami still conform to these simple rules.
