IT'S ALL IN THE FOLD:
MORE THAN JUST ORIGAMI
Columbia College Chicago's Center for Book & Paper Arts
July 28 August 25, 2007
Chicago, IL Can you imagine a traditional origami crane folded by a 13-year old to the
size of a flea in perfect form? Or a mathematician turned origami folder who is regularly
hired by the medical industry to fold something so small that it can fit into a shunt and
expand in a human vein? It's All In the Fold is an exhibition that takes a world look at the
way paper transforms itself when folded. More than an amusement, origami today also
teaches mathematics and geometry. It's more than just cranes and snowflakes. Try
tessellations or tetrahedrons, dodecahedrons and other polygons. Origamic furniture,
folded paper lamps, airplanes and a few naughty folds are all on the horizon.
Chicago and international paper folding artists and teachers will amaze you with the
dexterity of their folds. It's All in the Fold has attracted some of the world's most

Venessa Gould of Green Fuse Films
Bradford Hansen Smith
