What are Paperanimations?
animations are technically automata. Automata are self-operating
or mechanisms that usually
do a trick when turned. Paper
automata have been around since the 19th century. Then, they
were scenarios with movable figures powered by sand, hot
air, push and pull and crank mechanisms. Paper animations is
the term we coined for today’s paper automata as today’s
are distinctly different from those of the past.
Making paper animations and static paper models
(such as buildings, planes, cars and animals) is a thriving hobby in
and Asia. Such paper crafting
is just now catching on in the USA. Paper animations enjoys an increasingly
wider following among teachers and students who use the models
the basics of mechanical movement.
