Where art meets math

I’ve posted before about the intersection of art and math, as well as a link to this cool mandelbrot video. The other night Netflix offered me a math video! (Their algorithm is pretty amazing. They’ve been getting better and better at choosing the kinds of weird, quirky, non-mainstream films I like.)

This is a film about folders—people who do the kind of origami that will astound you. And they link it to higher mathematics, which also will astound you. At least, it amazed me.
