This is genuinely incredible. Luca Iaconi-Stewart may just be the world's greatest paper-airplane-maker. Seriously – this guy's work makes your crease-and-fold creations look like utter child's play.

Between the Folds (2008)

Between the Folds (2008) | Paper Horizon | Scoop.it

From IMDB: "Directed by Vanessa Gould. With Erik D. Demaine, Martin L. Demaine, Vincent Floderer, Miri Golan. Depicts a cast of fine artists and eccentric scientists (from MIT and NASA) who have devoted their lives to the unlikely medium of modern origami." Mike, here is a wonderful video about paper folders from a Japanese National treasure, to a scientist, to an artist in Europe who makes marvelous figures with folded and scrunched paper. 

Mike Marinos's insight:

This is a great and suprising film and I have seen it a number of times.  Thanks you ghbrett for the reminder.

Hanji - Scooping up the Moonlight

Hanji - Scooping up the Moonlight | Paper Horizon | Scoop.it
Mike Marinos's insight:

If you are at all interested in papermaking get this film.  It is available with English subtitles.

 

Deftly written and directed by Im Kwon-Taek it weaves personal tradegy with attempting to revive traditional Korean papermaking and along the way has a poke at contemporary Korean culture, has a few gentle laughs and resolves in a very human way - and has quite a lot of papermaking - most importantly.

Mike Marion's comment below is a good one. Once upon a time I was involved with paper making and enjoyed it very much. This should be interesting.

 

By the way if you live near Washington, DC. Right now there is a showing of Ellsworth Kelley's paper art. See: http://www.nga.gov/exhibitions/kelly.shtm
