So now I have a thing for paper flowers

Yesterday I watched a mind blowing documentary called Between the Folds, and it was all about origami. Not your little kid variety, but mind-blowing, super complicated and realistic origami. Of faces, and dragons, and animals of all kinds. I said "holy crap!" and many similar variants repeatedly while watching. Mind-blowing I tell you.

This particular documentary is one I purchased for work and I really can't sing the praises of PBS enough. They have all kinds of cool and amazing works that certainly never aired on my local PBS stations. But they have them. And what's more, we have them at work. Hooray!

If you get the chance to watch it, please do. Of course, you may start wishing to make origami flowers for people to wear like yours truly. If you can't, at least check out the website for my favorite of the artists that were featured. Mind blowing!
