Paper and magic...
Now, two versions of the Origami Illusion: a magic stage illusion with a Japanese paper-folding theme, designed by Jim Steinmeyer. First, this one premiered in 1986 by Canadian illusionist, America's favorite hippie, Doug Henning.
Second, illusionist David Copperfield later introduced this one, with some nominal changes that would be widely copied by other performers. No doubt you've watched a version of this on TV, on YouTube, or in a theater somewhere. Widely copied, without attribution to Mr. Steinmeyer, and most probably without any financial remuneration.
Magicians, apparently, have worse memory than paper.
