I may put together some info on the process of getting the paper ready to fold. Tell them about the kinds of paper, MC, ect. Maybe do some type of display on this in ne of the cases. Haven't decided yet.

Oh do this if you can get to it. In talking to people about origami they always get interested and fascinated by the details about and prepping paper.

Maybe take a intermediate model and fold from 3 types of paper so people can see how paperchoice effects the end result? I don't think your focus should be cp's. A bit too technical for people just passing by. Maybe have a few too show that everything was folded from a square. Good luck and congrats on exposition!

I do like the idea of folding a model from some different papers, just to show how much of a difference it makes. It really amazed me when I started using better paper how much of a difference it could make to the appearance of the final model.

Like I said, I have until July to get ready for this, so I have the time to do pretty much anything. I just have to figure out how much space I want to devote to different things.

I think a section on the process / prep work that goes into folding a display quality model would be well received though.

I love the idea of using the exhibit to give a better idea of all the work and details behind the complexity of folding origami nowadays :D.


PS: I'd also love to see pictures, even a video, of your exhibit.
