A free, open to public screening of "Between the Folds."

Come see the amazing ways origami can be used, and meet others interested in this art and science.

Whether you are a folder, artist, engineer, or another field, this is sure to inspire.

"A fascinating documentary about the science and art of origami, BETWEEN THE FOLDS profiles brilliant artists, mathematicians and scientists who are reinventing the ancient Japanese tradition of paper folding. With just one piece of paper, and without the use of glue, tape or staples, these offbeat and provocative minds are creating unimaginably beautiful works of art and thought-provoking mathematical models."

Short message from Scott:

"I would also like to quickly announce the formation of an origami group in Hawaii, the Hawaii Origami Club. I have been meeting some folders around Hawaii, however, they are scattered throughout the island. With there seeming to be no really active group in Hawaii, I would like to start one to bring folders together. The group can cover a large area of topics, from traditional and craft models and classes; to more contemporary topics such as crease patterns, complex, abstract art, tessellations, polyhedra, math, science, etc. The group is open to anyone, of any skill level, of any interest, as long as it has something to do with origami."
