863: (313/365) Casa Blanca

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I always find it remarkable that with relatively few folds, we can hint at a shape so familiar that our minds go nuts and full in the visual context: This is Roman Diaz’s “Casa Illusione”, a faux 3D dwelling that nicely plays with light, angle, perspective and proportion. I chose to fold it white (Casa […]

861: (311/365) Tessellated Star Box

Posted by wonko on November 7, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I saw a photo sequence of a tessellation that was fashioned into a box and knew I had to try it: Well, I say tessellation, but really this is just one molecule, but it is none the less beautiful.

856: (306/365) Brillex Cube

Posted by wonko on November 2, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I am always on the lookout for interesting folded geometry: A modular exploration, designed by David Brill is usually interesting and these Brillex cubes seem fascinating.

844: (294/365) Our House, is a very very very fine house …

Posted by wonko on October 21, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, geometry |

It seems to be the season for buying houses. A couple of my work colleagues have, individually, in the last little while purchased houses: The “Great Australian Dream” apparently is to own your own home – this seems irrefutable proof that it is still entirely possible.

843: (293/365) Origami Architecture

Posted by wonko on October 21, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I was doodling with a 17cm square, divided into an 8×8 grid and collapsed, via a photodiagram (and a bit of wrestle-magic) into a curious but possibly useful surface corrugation/tessellation: With an exercise in patience, fold accuracy and layer management, a “swastika”-like collapse becomes a sunken 4 segment recess, then the edges tidy up with […]

841: (291/365) Shuriken

Posted by wonko on October 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I am pretty sure that “ninja stars” were not really a thing, but – meh: This rather charming woven six-pointed star is an interesting exercise in re-working a square into a windmill-like hexagonal base.

833: (283/365) Porous

Posted by wonko on October 10, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

It is interesting how things sometimes just work themselves out: Here was me, panicking because I had nothing ready or in mind for today’s fold, came home and the latest Tanteidan Magazine was in my mailbox.

832: (282/365) “Love You Longtime”

Posted by wonko on October 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Apparently there is an Origami Olympiad – an annual internet competition where folders are pitted against a collection of challenging folds for points: This model is the first one from the IVth International Origami Internet Olympiad, a publication that contains other things I will try also.

829: (279/365) Kablang!

Posted by wonko on October 6, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Leafing through my copy of Drawing Origami Tome 2, I noticed a spectacular modular designed by Francesco Mancini that I knew I had to try: Modules folded from 2×1 rectangles lock together really nicely, creating clusters of 3 and 5, forcing the megastructure to curve gently into a spikey ball.

825: (275/365) Happy Irrelevant Monarch’s Birthday

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, seasonal |

For some reason the republic of Australia still has ties to a monarchy that is completely irrelevant to us but somehow, ultimately, still controls aspects of our government: I decided to celebrate the public holiday (yay, I accept the holiday, just reject the reason) by folding a crown.
