About the Filmmaker
Director and Producer Vanessa Gould has studied a mix of science, art, film, music and design over the past two decades, including architecture and astrophysics at Columbia and music at the New England Conservatory. Between the Folds was a project born of great admiration for the artists and scientists working in paper, and the belief that their work should be documented. In 2010, Vanessa was a featured speaker at EG10 and the recipient of a Peabody Award. She is also a pianist and painter.

















About the Executive Producer
