in a couple of months we are upgrading our library management system [the software which basically runs the library – checkouts, checkins, fines, cataloguing etc],which is currently Dynix Classic, to a product called Unicorn. looking for appropriate unicorn images for our communications branding i came across a couple of sites dedicated to origami unicorns, and also the cult movie Blade Runner. the image you can see is a screen shot from the movie.
being an amateur origami-ist (see origami vase in my flickr/ikebana), and also just generally nosey about everything, i was interested in the significance of this origami figure to this film that i have never seen. so i did a quick search, the results of which i wont bore you with the details.
i would like to say, however, that origami is an artform. i started following the instructions to make the origami unicorn and 20 minutes later i gave up, with half a deformed unicorn in my hand.
