If I could transport myself anywhere right now it would be to the Japanese American National Museum to see up close their Folding Paper: the Infinite Possibilities of Origami exhibition. Curated by Meher McArthur, with Robert J. Lang as exhibition advisor, the show features 150 works by 40 incredible artists.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Los Angeles then go and explore the history of paper folding, discover works of the world’s foremost origami artists, and be inspired by the relationship origami has with mathematics, science, and design.
Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami is on until August 26, 2012.
