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.

797: (247/365) Brill’s Triangle Box

Time is short, this fold is cute: A rather lovely triangle box designed for David Brill’s wedge flexicube.

785: (235/365) Pentagonal Masu

Posted by wonko on August 23, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

A Masu (or box) was traditionally square and used to measure rice in Japanese kitchens. These days, masu are typically used to sip Sake out of: Having mastered David Brill’s Square Masu, I thought it time to try the pentagonal one. Apparently the pentagonal masu exists only in Origami circles – this makes sense as […]

782: (232/365) Wedge Flex

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

Topologically convoluted geometric modulars confuse the brain – shapes that morph into different shapes in stable but seemingly unpredictable ways are fascinating: This is a wedge-flex – a modular hinged construction of a series of triangular prisms (wedges) that fold, bend, twist and re-align in interesting configurations.

756 757 & 758: (206..8/365) Cat, Mouse, Cheese

Posted by wonko on July 27, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

So I have been really busy, with meetings and … stuff, so I fell a little behind. Looking to catch up, I noticed a lovely group of folds designed by David Brill: This is Cat, Mouse, Cheese – a naturalistic composition with a pair of lovely fold-related critters and a lovely wedge of cheese.

748: (198/365) Brill’s Square Silver Star

Posted by wonko on July 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Busy times indeed – perfect for folding a 12 piece modular: Fairly simple modules that sit over one, inside another adjacent module, locking fairly positively into swirls of 4 “petals”, you get a shape that describes a cube when you look just at the points.

649: (99/365) Brill’s Double Cube

Posted by wonko on April 9, 2017 in 365-2017 |

I am such a fan of David Brill’s work: His command of seemingly impossible geometry is complimented by the works of Francis Ow, the designer of the other “Double Cube” I have folded – a torturous skeletal structure.

524: Happy Valentines Day

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2016 in blarg, boxes, flower, geometry, seasonal |

I find it fascinating that there are so many models and folding techniques I have yet to try. The “Magic Rose Cube” is a case in point – I am amazed I have never folded it: Such a beautiful little modular, 3 pieces the flower, 3 slightly different pieces the leaves, slots together into a […]

504: Coxless Four

Posted by wonko on September 5, 2015 in humanoid, vehicle |

Rowing is huge at my school – a veritable machine that hundreds of kids get very passionate about, a gear-fest like few others: Seems the purpose of the sport is to put boys in lycra, sitting atop tiny fiberglass shells, armed with a paddle rowing furiously backwards across vast distances of water. The competitive nature […]

431: Brill’s Woven Dodecahedron

Posted by wonko on January 31, 2013 in geometry |

As a teacher, I look for activities, particularly in the establishment phase of a year, to engage. Nothing says engagement like a hands-on physical activity and, as my wont is origami, I went for a modular project: The themes for this were many, the metaphors a plenty – “many hands make light work” and “the […]
