Event Details

A FREE public showing of two amazing, inspiring and fascinating movies about design and user experience. Admission, one small soda and one small popcorn are free! Invite everyone!

MOVIE 1: BETWEEN THE FOLDS (54 minutes, starts at 7:30 pm)

 Origami may seem an unlikely medium for understanding and explaining the world. But around the globe, several fine artists and theoretical scientists are abandoning more conventional career paths to forge lives as modern-day paper folders. Through origami, these offbeat and provocative minds are reshaping ideas of creativity and revealing the relationship between art and science. This unique film explores concepts of minimalism, deconstruction, process and empiricism and shows how closely art and science are intertwined. The medium of paper folding—a simple blank, uncut square—emerges as a resounding metaphor for the creative potential for transformation in all of us. 

 BETWEEN THE FOLDS chronicles 10 artists' stories. The film features three of the world's foremost origami artists: a former sculptor in France who folds caricatures in paper rivaling the figures of Daumier and Picasso; a hyper-realist who walked away from a successful physics career to challenge the physics of a folded square instead; and an artisanal papermaker who folds impressionistic creations from the very same medium he makes from scratch. The film also features advanced mathematicians and a remarkable scientist who received a MacArthur Genius Award for his computational origami research. 

MOVIE 2: DESIGN & THINKING (74 minutes, starts after the first movie finishes)

"Design & Thinking" is a documentary exploring the idea of "design thinking"!

How do we fully engage organizations to think about the changing landscape of business, culture and society? 

Inspired by design thinking, this documentary grabs business owners, designers, social change-makers and other professions to portrait what they have in common when facing this ambiguous 21st century. 

What is design thinking? How is it applied in business models? How are people changing the world with their own creative minds? This is a call to the conventional minds to change and collaborate. It will challenge audiences with a radical new perspective on design.

This screening is free and open to the public. The theater seats 500+ so we’re not kidding: invite friends, family, acquaintances, coworkers, origami enthusiasts, guilds, Pokémon hunters, suburbanites, city-dwellers, legislators, artists - anyone who enjoys a fun and thoughtful look at the creative process of design!
