Oriscript   Oriscript

Oriscript was created by Christopher Shelley in 2012 while he was making origami paper cranes. It is called Oriscript because it was originally made as a way of writing by folding paper, like origami. It can be used to write any language with virtually any object.

Alphabet chart

Oriscript describes letters each with a numerical value. It is a cumulative writing system, where character values are 'stacked' upon each other within a grid based on their individual numerical value. In a sense, it is like tallying. The value of each character lies not in a shape (all characters are delineated with a description-less notch) but in its position relative to the previous character. This means that 'ABCDEF' and 'BCDEF' look entirely different as the first character in the text was the basis for the position of the rest of the characters. The full English alphabet would look like this.

However if we remove the A, the change cascades through the grid and repositions all subsequent characters.
