The literal translation of Kusudama is "medicine ball," and perhaps this beautiful object has some healing powers. We certainly feel better after seeing it. Vanessa says that while it's a traditional model she has lately been making them with non-traditional color schemes. Origami is a popular Swap Meat subject but in general, the craft doesn't seem to get its fair share of attention. Vanessa and friends are out to change all that with their film project, Exploring Origami. Check the trailer here.
