(OrganicJar) I was browsing iTunes in search of a documentary last night when a film called “Between the Folds” by Vanessa Gould caught my eye. I had heard of it before and even watched the trailer, but just couldn’t imagine how a film on origami would capture my attention for an entire hour.
After searching for a while and not finding interest in any other documentary something inside me said “watch it”. I’m a firm believer in intuition as most of my life, my intuition has led me to the weirdest and best of experiences. Last night was no exception.
For those who don’t know me personally. I am an artist at my core. Art. Art makes me feel alive in a way nothing else does. A film, a piece of music, a painting, a photograph. Whether it’s my own art or another’s. Last night, it was the film “Between The Folds” by Vanessa Gould. What an absolutely stunning film. The things that are being made from a square piece of paper beggar belief.
This film is not about origami, it’s about potential. The potential of an uncut paper square. The potential of a wild scientific idea. The potential to see things, differently.
Whether you appreciate art or science or just want to be fascinated for an hour, this is a film that I highly recommend! There is real genius here.
‘GREEN FUSE FILMS’ award–winning documentary Between the Folds chronicles the stories of ten fine artists and intrepid theoretical scientists who have abandoned careers and scoffed at hard–earned graduate degrees—all to forge unconventional lives as modern–day paperfolders.
As they converge on the unlikely medium of origami, these artists and scientists reinterpret the world in paper, and bring forth a bold mix of sensibilities towards art, expressiveness, creativity and meaning. And, together these offbeat and provocative minds demonstrate the innumerable ways that art and science come to bear as we struggle to understand and honor the world around us—as artists, scientists, creators, collaborators, preservers, and simply curious beings.
The original score by Gil Talmi performed by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra will take you on a haunting, mysterious journey. Listen to the entire album below.
