870: (320/365) Nymph Ball

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

Exam invigilation is one of the most boring things that exists, when possible I fold repetitive things during them (thus allowing me to be vigilant and productive): This is a 30-piece modular ball made from Ekaterina Lakasheva’s “Nymph” module – simple tab and pocket creations folded from 7.5cm squares.

865: (315/365) 11/11/2017 Lest We Forget

Posted by wonko on November 11, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

The poppy has become a symbol of remembrance, reverence and honour: A humble flower capable of thriving in the harshest of conditions, flourishing under duress with a beautiful, if short-lived ephemeral flower. Something existential to learn here for all of us.

864: (314/365) 6-part Rhombicuboctahedron

Posted by wonko on November 11, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

…yes, I know, a day late but, meh! Always on the look out for fascinating geometry, I had put this 6-part Rhombicuboctahedron, designed by David Mitchell, in my “fold this when you get a moment” pile: 6 relatively simple modules interlock to make a fascinating ball-like structure but the devil is in the details.

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.

854: (304/365) … you make One Fairy Cry …

Posted by wonko on October 31, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, seasonal |

Australia does not really have a tradition of Halloween, it seems to me a cultural import that encourages the worst sort of excesses – a point I tried to explain to a small halloweenie dressed as a fairy who came knocking on my door on this day a few years back: It did not go […]

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.

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.

817: (267/365) Double Helix

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, nature |

Being a bit of a closet Biology nerd, when you see a design that combines love of folding with something biologically interesting you jump at the chance to fold it: This modular is made up of a bunch of bent arrow-shaped modules that slip together in 2 strands that then, rather satisfyingly, intertwine in much […]

816: (266/365) Spring Solstice

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

For purists, today marks the Spring Solstice, the “official” first day of spring (as per lunar cycles).  As a member of OUSA, I was asked to participate in the “Annual Gift”, which consists of contributing a fold to be used as a Xmas tree decoration at The American Museum of Natural History. Apparently this has […]

814: (264/365) Complementary Modular Octahedron

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Having recently realised I had forgotten to re-subscribe to JOAS, I hurriedly did so then went on holidays, fully expecting the back-issues of Tanteidan to not arrive for weeks: Due to the miracles of Australia post (or was that Japanese post and a courier?) they arrived while I was away, fortunately kept dry in my […]
