The book I’ve been working on for the last few months is an introduction to some of the most innovative origami artists working today. Their work has been the subject of my two traveling exhibitions, Folding Paper and Above the Fold, both of which are touring museums around the Unites States. The first one opened in March 2012 at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) in Los Angeles and the second will come to JANM May next year. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by the programming staff at JANM if I could come and do a presentation today to a group of potential sponsors for the exhibition. Even though I am desperately trying to finish the book this week, I knew the presentation was important, so I drove to the Museum this morning armed with a Powerpoint presentation that I hoped would impress them enough to help fund the exhibition.
