Wait just a minute. I think you guys might have the cat by its tail. Origami isn't a mathematical art because their is math present, it is a mathematical art because math is inexstricably linked to the creational process. You use mainly mathematical principles throughout almost every design, some are just used more subconciously. Aznman, you are right, many folders use equations to find proportions or angle etc. in their designs, but these are only basic. The true art comes in the more subtle use of math in the creation of beauty in the model.
Wolf, anything and everything in our universe has math involded in it in some way, that is what makes it so elegant. The question is, is math a mere tool to the art or part of the beauty?
P.S. check out the umulius variation in my photos (signiture). It was made using pure math.
There is a time for everything, that time has been pre-ordained be almighty God. Trust Him, and no harm shall come to you. He will keep you safely inside his loving hands.
