919: Floral Perpetua by Dasa Severova

Posted by wonko on February 13, 2018 in 365-2017, geometry |

I am always on the lookout for interesting folds, this one was shared on a fakebook group as a photsequence on Flickr: A fun folding technique, and a fascinating fractal pattern gradually converges towards the centre of the original octagon.

915: (365/365) Chris K Palmer’s “Flower Tower”

Posted by wonko on December 31, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

I have a long and terrifying “fold me” list of models I will one day get around to – this was on it: An excruciating fractal tessellation that eats paper like few other folds, based on spiral collapses of a dodecagon that then gets turned inside out to make the next level to collapse. The […]

886: (336/365) Second-Level Octospiral

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Paper fractals are fascinating self-repeating/reducing designs that are relatively new in the origami world: This 2nd-level “Octospiral” is a model I saw in one of my last BOS journals before my membership lapsed. Designed and modified by Roman Diaz, Endre Somos and Meenakshi Mukerji, it is a delightfully dense spiral that, theoretically, could keep reducing […]

805: (255/365) Further Fractal Folding

Posted by wonko on September 12, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Time is scarce but this was folded while kids were doing a really hard test, figured I should try something hard also: This is a level 6 fractal fold of the previously folded Shuzo Fujimoto Hydrangea, and a beauty to behold.

795: (245/365) Tessellated Fractal

Posted by wonko on September 2, 2017 in 365-2017 |

Further exploring Shuzo Fujimoto’s “Hydrangea” fractal, it seems they can also be tessellated: This is a 4x fold, but I have seen many many more, closer together also, interweaving and other mind-boggling combinations. This fold has taken an age – started 4 days ago, finished yesterday (I had already decided on the spring shoot for […]

792: (242/365) Fractal Folding

Posted by wonko on August 30, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Speaking of fractals, as I was (well, kinda sorta) I realised I had never tried the Fujimoto Hydrangea fold before: This is an interesting thing, with each iteration folded inside the previous – in theory you can keep folding this infinitely. In reality the tryanny of paper thickness and fat clumsy fingers stops you.
