Although Origami may seem to be an unlikely medium for understanding and explaining the world, fine artists and theoretical scientists are abandoning more conventional career paths to forge lives as modern-day paper folders.
Between the Folds chronicles ten of their stories, opening with three of the world’s foremost origami artists – a former sculptor in France, a scientist who walked away from a physics career, and an artisanal papermaker working with the material which he makes from scratch. Folding a simple blank, uncut paper square emerges as a resounding metaphor for the creative potential for transformation in all of us.
