Human Origami

Please see below from Professor Amanda Bayley – all MA students welcome.

Human OrigamiThe Folding Continuum of Human-Environmental Life

an introductory workshop and talk for staff , students & associates of the

Research Center for Environmental Humanities

& Creative Corporealities Research Group


Glenna Batson, ScD, PT, MA

visiting Fulbright Senior Specialist (USA)

Wednesday, 30th of October 2019 | 3 pm – 6 pm 

Newton Park Campus (Room tbc)


This workshop offers both a brief lecture on the origin of Batson’s creative process in developing Human Origami, and on its continuing fascination among bio-engineers, artists, architects, and ecologists. Where does human patterning belong in the pursuit of creative responses to deepening environmental concerns and crises? Human Origami is a form of improvisational movement based on the exploration of bodily folding. Folding is how we got here. It is our biological archive that exists deep within our consciousness as a rage for pattern making. From the origin of our embryonic form to the functional patterning of our bodies throughout life, folding emerges everywhere as a dynamic interface between the human and the non-human (material and natural) worlds.  Despite the artistry and ingenuity of Origami-based creations and applications, the human body does not fold like paper. What more can folding in the human body tell us? The processes underlying human bodily folding remain mysterious and unarticulated. Here, participants will have a chance to experience Human Origami and to raise questions around the human-environmental interface. Glenna will guide the group through a movement experience on folding, exploring this theme of interface. The movement structure is meditative. It is designed to heighten sensory awareness to the dimension of depth and texture that exists within this relationship between body and the surround. No movement training is necessary to participate. Discussion following the practice will focus on raising questions pertinent to current environmental queries.


Come join Glenna and deepen your appreciation for the eco-logic of the enfolded universe. All are welcome.
