Do you think modular folding is "pure enough"?

General discussion about Origami, Papers, Diagramming, ...

Do you think modular folding is "pure enough"?

Like gluing and cutting, people think modular is unnaceptable, but do you think that it is just as bad if not worse?

I think it is acceptable as origami, just being a different style of origami.

Figure out what "purity" means to you. For some, it's the highest value in origami design. For others, it's just a contrived concept that just serves to limit the art. Most people fall somewhere between those two extremes, you just have to figure out what you are comfortable with.

As Richard P. Feynman espoused, "What do you care what other people think?"

Some of the more... "pure" purists object to using more than one single square of uncut paper. Modulars, by definition, violate this "rule".

For me modulars are ok as long as they don´t require cutting or glueing. It´s soemtimes really impressive what you can do only with paper, also if more than one sheet is involved. There are modular action toys that hold together without glue! (For example fireworks)
But if there is maybe an insect with all legs and antennae and don´t know what else and I would have to deside whether to fold the one piece version or the one that requires more than one sheet of paper, I would surely fold the one piece version.

Modular Origami is pure in my opinion, as long as no cutting is involved and the modules hold together without glue.
But still I don't really like to do modular Origami myself, I just don't like the idea of folding the same module over and over and over again.... but that's a question of taste :)
So long and keep folding ^_^

this rule is really strict :roll:
i think the definition for pure origami is without cutting and glueing
but i personally dont mind even cutting and glueing a little bit, not mention single paper or many papers :P

T-Rex, and a full skeleton of this dinosaur. This book will get the purists to start folding multi piece models!"

i dont understand why u confine it to geometric modulars
There are many animals involve glueing and cutting also
It is unfair to geometric modulars :D
