I was exploring a corrugation technique I last used with Eric Joisel’s Bandoneon and stumbled across a sort of plan to fold Joisel’s Snail:
Adding a taper, it sort of suggests a snakey thing that then can be coiled up and sort of piled upon the rest of the paper that, with a clever series of 3 accordion pleats makes feelers and reverses the direction of the paper to make the snails foot.
I like this model a lot but cannot see how it can be held together without a little bit of help – the foot has some double-sided tape keeping it in shape but the snail shell coil is loose and I am sure when the cleaning lady knocks it, it will cascade in awkward and alarming ways onto the floor.
I can also see huge potential for this technique – old style gas masks and other tubey-things, but I would probably start with a wider section first – more modeling potential at both ends.
This was WTF # 17 – how did you go at guessing what it was?
