Many a Swan (2012)

Running time: 5:43
Native format: Quicktime MOV (Anaglyph 3D)

A film about folding—folded paper, folded land, folded timelines, folded video planes—that daydreams about the Grand Canyon (seen here in various ads, music videos, and anonymous found footage), the art of origami, and rewinding history.
