Fold along with MIT (and Mozart)

Betcha didn't know that MIT, my alma mater, is a hotbed of origami innovation. Well it is! And you can savor some of the best pieces to come out of the Institute in recent years right now at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, where "Mens et Manus" (that's Latin for "mind and hand," btw, MIT's motto) runs through April 29.  In the above video, a truly mind-boggling piece of origami is undertaken - a folded version of the MIT seal (it's on display in the show).  If you've got ten hours free, maybe you can try it yourself.
