bruh you can't tag the post you just did with "origami" and "japanese"- it's zhezhi, the artist is chinese, and he's specifically talking about how he feels that zhezhi has been eclipsed by origami :(

You are right, and I apologize for the mistake! I’ve changed the tags on the post to include Zhezhi and Chinese.  Thanks for the heads up!  Sometimes in a flurry of queuing posts, I go by the visual stuff, and I don’t always read the text. That’s not a good way to make posts, I should read more in detail!

Japan is relentless in their efforts to incapacitate us with outrageously cute and singularly odd creations. First there were the Banana Bird capsule toys, then came the Bread dogs, and now - while we were already reaching for the smelling salts because of the previous two - they’ve gone and created Gashapon toy versions of the real-life sushi cats (“Neko-Sushi”) that we featured here last year.

Such an awesomely powerful combination of weird and cute may cause a disturbance in the Force. They’re certainly making it difficult for us to think about pretty much anything else. Although we are also suddenly craving sushi for lunch…

70-year-old Xu Shuquan is a retired primary school teacher from the city of Chengdu in Sichuan province who has spent the past 60 years practicing Zhezhi, the traditional Chinese art of paper folding. Shugan has been folding paper planes since he was 10 years old and has amassed an awesome collection of 10,000 paper planes of various sizes, shapes and colors. Unlike Japanese origami, which primarily focuses on creating animals and flowers, Chinese paper folding concentrates mainly on objects, such as boats, hats, or in this case, airplanes.

…Xu put his knowledge of Zhezhi to good use during his teaching career: “When children were naughty or not paying attention, I would get their attention by folding a simple paper dart with a message on it and flying it to them,” he said. “The planes got more and more complicated and the children seemed to love them.” The trick would backfire at times because his students loved the planes so much that they would create a ruckus on purpose.

Shuquan hopes to hold an exhibition of his Zhezhi creations in hopes of reviving an art form which he feels has been eclipsed in the western world by Japanese origami.

“My biggest hope is to hold my own exhibition where people can learn more about the traditional art.”
