Bradford Hansen-Smith presents the art and geometry of folding circles. As he explains,

"Everything we know about geometry, mathematics, and all spatial arrangement and organization of matter is demonstrated by cutting into the wholeness of the sphere. When we cut the sphere we have pieces, parts, and fragments. It is no longer Whole. When keeping the Wholeness of the sphere and compressing it to a flat plane, nothing is lost; all the spatial information is compressed into a flat circle disc."
