About Robert J. Lang

Robert J. Lang has been an avid student of origami for over forty years and is now recognized as one of the world's leading masters of the art. He is noted for designs of great detail and realism, and his repertoire includes some of the most complex origami designs ever created. His work combines aspects of the Western school of mathematical origami design with the Eastern emphasis upon line and form to yield models that are at once distinctive, elegant, and challenging to fold. They have been shown in exhibitions in New York (Museum of Modern Art), Paris (Carrousel du Louvre), Salem (Peabody Essex Museum), San Diego (Mingei Museum of World Folk Art), and Kaga, Japan (Nippon Museum of Origami), among others. In 1992 Dr. Lang became the first Westerner ever invited to address the Nippon Origami Association's annual meeting- he has since been an invited guest at international origami conventions around the world. He lectures widely on origami and its connections to mathematics, science, and technology and teaches workshops on both artistic techniques and applications of folding in industrial design. Dr. Lang is one of the pioneers of the cross-disciplinary marriage of origami with mathematics- he has been one of the few Western columnists for Origami Tanteidan Magazine, the journal of the Japan Origami Academic Society, and has presented several refereed technical papers on origami-math at mathematical and computer science professional meetings. He has consulted on applications of origami to engineering problems ranging from air-bag design to expandable space telescopes. He is the author or co-author of twelve books and numerous articles on origami art and design. Dr. Lang was born in Ohio and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Along the way to his current career as a full-time origami artist and consultant, he worked as a physicist, engineer, and R
