Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami

Highlighting the extraordinary power & potential of contemporary origami, nine international artists transform two-dimensional paper into stunning, sprawling, & soaring three-dimensional sculpture. "Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami" encompasses artwork created using varied techniques, including dampening, stretching, folding, pleating, and twisting into forms illustrating connections between origami and mathematics. Bridging the realms of art and science, origami concepts impact architectural and computer-aided design and are reflected even in our folded DNA. These origami artworks – from floating, organic forms to conceptual book sculptures emerging from the Torah and the Koran, also explore concepts as varied as infinity, sustainable design, and world peace. "Above the Fold" the first traveling exhibition to bring origami installations from around the world to North American audiences, was curated by Meher McArthur, and the tour was organized by International Arts & Artists
