In this award-winning documentary, Between the Folds, film-maker Vanessa Gould follows various artists and scientists and explores their shared love for paperfolding. Blurring the lines between ‘the science of art, the art of science’, Gould reveals how the creativity and intricacies of origami mimic nature’s own mysteries. This art form, once associated as a simple pastime for children, ranges in its expression. The provocative folds mimic all aspects of life, from human emotion to the detailed structure of a double helix. These artists-scientists appear qualified to solve any mystery, all with paper-folding. Between the Folds is an intriguing film about an art discipline that utilizes creativity and science.
