A short piece about folding — folding paper, folding land, folding video planes, folding timelines. Many a Swan convolutes fifteen years of Grand Canyon history, and sixty-five years of 3D cinema history, into a five-and-a-half minute funnel. Inspired by the work of Akira Yoshizawa.

* Please note that this work should only be exhibited in a single-­channel screening venue that provides anaglyphic 3D glasses for all viewers.
