Mens et Manus: Folded Paper of MIT

February 4, 2012 - April 29, 2012

Mens et Manus is an exhibition of complex folded paper sculptures by staff, students, faculty, and alumni of the Massachusetts Institute of Techonology. Latin for “mind and hand,” the MIT motto mens et manus is meant to exemplify the relationship between the work of the intellect and the work of the hand. This holistic approach uniting hand and mind emerges in a community of paper folders that has garnered a reputation for new, innovative, and extreme patterns.
