We would like to invite you to the Polish origami convention. The 15th Outdoor Origami Meeting (the 15th Polish Origami Convention aka Plener Origami) will be held Saturday April 30th to Monday May 2nd), 2016 (with pre-folding session on Friday April 29th evening. The convention place is located in the center of Krakow (Old Podgorze District), but still with some outdoor activities available. We hope such arrangement will attract you to Krakow and we will host you beginning of May.
Robert J. Lang is our special guest. We admire his enormous contribution to development of origami and his broad interest in different aspects of origami from mathematical foundations and technical applications to fine art realization.
Techno is a leading topic of our convention. So we are awaiting techno models. It may be representation of an engineering object (for instance a bridge, a tower or a dome) or a result of application of special technology in origami, or opposite - application of origami in technology. This year we would like to focus our attention to short stories of “The Cyberiad” by Stanislaw Lem, a Polish s-f writer. He was the most popular non-English sf writer for some time. In 2016 there is 95 anniversary of his birth and 10 anniversary of his death. He lived in Krakow for most of his life and created here all of his books. “The Cyberiad” was translated to English, German, Italian and many other languages. And it is really worth to read. We hope you will be inspired by adventures of Trurl and Klapaucius and bring a Cyberiad model to the convention.
And as usual we especially appreciate geometric models.
If you are able to attend, please bring your models for exhibition.
