A world from a sheet of paper
Starting from just a sheet of paper, by folding, stacking, crumpling, sometimes tearing, we will explore a variety of phenomena, from magic tricks and geometry to nonlinear elasticity and the traditional Japanese art of origami. Much of the show consists of table-top demos, which you can try later with friends and family.
So, take a sheet of paper . . .
