740: (190/365) Rubic’s Cube

Posted by wonko on July 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry, wtf |

Long before there were “fidget spinners”, Pokemon and “Pogs” there was a craze that swept me away when it first hit the market. A Hungarian designer called Erno Rubic devised a cube, subdivided up into 3x3x3 cubies that all slid on each other in layers: I instantly had to have one (well, in truth I […]

526: Sunflowers

Posted by wonko on April 10, 2016 in flower, geometry |

When asked by a friend (hey Trevor!) “can I make Sunflowers”, my answer initially was “dunno”, but let’s find out: I found a Youtube video by Ph2 with a flower base that was near identical to a number of other flower petal turnings I have done before. Squast then squash then squash and yo get […]

478: Ku’s Fairy

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2014 in fantasy, humanoid |

Often I find highly technical folding is mentally cleansing – that complete absorption in meticulous detail lets you lose yourself: Jason Ku is an engineer and origami artist unlike any other – having marveled at his bicycle, I was determined to find something else of his to try. I had dismissed this fold, featured in […]

437: Perambulator

Posted by wonko on March 17, 2013 in domestic, vehicle, wtf |

When I first saw photos of this model, I could not believe it was folded from a single sheet, without cuts, folds only: In case you were wondering, this was WTF (What’s That Fold?) # 8. I was determined to give it a go. Noticing it was made from hundreds of pleats, and given the […]

429: Satoshi Kamiya’s Lyrebird

Posted by wonko on January 18, 2013 in bird, nature |

You may have guessed I am a bit of a fanboi when it comes to the works of Satoshi  Kamiya: As previously stated, my wife and I spent some time in a rainforest cabin and that inspired me to have a go at his Lyrbird – a deliciously complicated crumple that needs to result in […]
