I thought that this video was an amazing documentary. At first I didn’t really know what to think but it really became tied together at the end where all the people who made the origami art became one (in a sense), where they introduced all of the real-world applications such as benefiting education, finding cures to certain diseases, and the list seems to go on. The creativity of the art is outstanding, and it follows with a huge audience of expertise and of course amateurs and entrepreneurs.


This documentary is also a very inspiring piece to never give up and always try to think outside the folds.

This was amazing. All the art work was just beautiful. And how they used it to teach math, it made me want to try to learn math with origami. I didn’t know origami could be more than just art, I guess. It was so incredible to see what you can do with paper, besides drawing or writing. All the different techniques the artist used to fold the paper to make their art unique. I just really liked it, it was very interesting to me.

My thoughts on the video is that it is great some would devote their lives for just the folding of papers and invest time into new folding techniques. When they said that the person who inspired them to do origami was the same person who started in japan, who said that it just takes folding the paper instead of cutting it, gluing it, or taping it. When it showed the guys who use the origami for educational uses and not just a form of art because it was fun, or it was useful to them especially the guy who graduated college at the age of twelve and got his PHD when he was twenty shows that origami is useful in many ways and I hope that it encourages more to do what they think is fun and joyful to them.

I thought this was a really awesome movie! It was so interesting how all of the people in this movie were doing origami but for different reasons, and in different styles. One of the people who they interviewed who was living in France was making origami people, they were really realistic and amazing! I think out of all the fantastic artists in this movie the man from France was my favorite, the people he made were very inspiring for me. I'd never seen origami people like what he has made before, I hope I'll be able to find a pattern and try to make one some day.

I thought that it was very interesting that they can make almost anything out of origami. I really like the the people origami statues or models. But what interested me the most is the scientist that earned his PhD at 21,  I like that he found that proteins actualy fold and if they don't fold in the right way the human gets a disease.

When i watched this it was so interesting how complex paper folding is. I wanna learn how to do wet folding it's looks like it makes it easier. It also made me wanna look up other folding ways
