Update: Pictures of the convention at origami-treffen.de!
Last night I got back from the 2010 Freising origami meeting. What a great event!
I've posted some pictures of the display areas at http://www.happyfolding.com/gallery?convention=312, and more stuff will be added some time later.
I probably shouldn't be telling you this, because I haven't had the chance to order some myself yet, but:
I just discovered (mere seconds ago) that Nicoloas Terry is currently selling a very limited stock of Origamido paper. It's specialist origami paper made by Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander, and it's a rare opportunity indeed to be able to buy it online (rather than flying to Hawaii).
Update: "Between the Folds" is now also available on Netflix.
If you're interested in origami, you might have heard about the film "Between the Folds". I have heard several enthusiastic reports about it, not just by origami enthusiasts, but also those without prior exposure to origami. The film was even honoured with the Peabody Award 2010.
Now here's the exciting news: today I received a message that the film is currently streaming online. That means you can watch the film for free, and experience the exhilarating beauty and wonder documented. It's currently being streamed on http://video.pbs.org/video/1340426590/.
There's an exciting new origami page out there, which you might be interested in.
They can probably express best what the site is about:
Paper the World is a humble little project dedicated to spreading simple origami of models that focus on endangered animal species. There are other purposes to this endeavour but primarily it is to educate and teach some charming origami animal figures to children so that they can enjoy the art and creativity of folding paper and making beautiful things from such common material.
