The marker reads...
Folded Terrain - As the film "Between the Folds" suggests , folding involves compaction and expansion and is found in many places and scales in our lives. For example, geological strata folds to create mountains. proteins in the brain, airbags in our cars, petals in a flower, all fold and unfold as they function. It is a means to make a compact form out of something voluminous and to create 3-dimensional structure from a flat plane of material. A fold implies an unfolding and vice versa and thus embeds movement into form.
