Brian Chan – An Origami Enthusiast

Brian Chan has been an avid origami folder for many years, folding from Montroll’s Origami for the Enthusiast and Animal Origami for the Enthusiast since early elementary school until mid high-school, when he became distracted by other things. It wasn’t until 2004 when Robert Lang came to MIT to describe Origami Design Secrets, that he began folding seriously again, and just in time for the MIT competition. Since then he has attended OUSA Conventions and was invited to the 2006 JOAS Convention. Through these conventions, he has been lucky enough to speak with the big ‘legends’ of origami whose designs he had memorized as a child. As an artist, he is particularly drawn to Origami because it adds the extra challenge of folding from a square (and I like challenges, sometimes) and incorporates a lot of geometry, which was my more favored sector of mathematics. Upon arriving at his first OUSA (2005) he was happy to find that the majority of the Origami community is friendly and very willing to teach. He hopes that through the years, he will be able to make positive contributions as well, (and not become too cranky).(Discovered on Ursi’s Blog)
