844: (294/365) Our House, is a very very very fine house …

Posted by wonko on October 21, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, geometry |

It seems to be the season for buying houses. A couple of my work colleagues have, individually, in the last little while purchased houses: The “Great Australian Dream” apparently is to own your own home – this seems irrefutable proof that it is still entirely possible.

843: (293/365) Origami Architecture

Posted by wonko on October 21, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I was doodling with a 17cm square, divided into an 8×8 grid and collapsed, via a photodiagram (and a bit of wrestle-magic) into a curious but possibly useful surface corrugation/tessellation: With an exercise in patience, fold accuracy and layer management, a “swastika”-like collapse becomes a sunken 4 segment recess, then the edges tidy up with […]

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 […]

791: (241/365) Flower Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 29, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

Browsing a MiniNeo eZine that I follow, I noticed a rather interesting looking hexagonal flower and thought it worth a try: You triangle grid a hexagon into 16ths, then put a hex twist in the middle, then add the swing-back on petals and tidy up the tessellation to make a swirl.

786: (236/365) Beth Johnson’s Hex Owl

Posted by wonko on August 24, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I cannot believe I have not tried this before: A lovely hexagonal tessellation in one corner of a hexagon becomes the fluffy tummy, collapsing the body makes for lovely eyes and a pair of crenellated wings.

704: (154/365) Shuzo Fujimoto’s Stars n Squares Tessellation

Posted by wonko on June 3, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Starting with a square-twist tessellation, you add to the intensity by folding it some more: Alternating spin squares with stars, you get this nightmare of paper torture.

703: (153/365) Square Twist Tessellation

Posted by wonko on June 2, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Assignment time can sometimes be boring for a teacher, especially when kids are beavering away independently: This is a tessellation I have not tried before. Based on a square grid, diagonal squares rotate 45 degrees to lie flat again, causing pleat ripples that are cancelled out by adjacent twists – clever.

614: (64/365) Brickwork Fireplace

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

Brickwork tessellations are a bit of work, but it is nice to see a model that uses the tessellation as the texture of another structure: This is Ichiro Kinoshita’s “Fireplace by Brickwork”, a torturous fold that requires a ton of pre-creasing and as the scale I chose (square cut from an A3 sheet), the final […]

550: Multi-Stage Clover Tessellation

Posted by wonko on November 3, 2016 in geometry |

This torturous little bugger of a tessellation seemed to eat paper like nothing else: Shuzo Fujimoto’s design of a clover-like tessellation that spreads from a central point is an interesting exercise in layer rearrangement, resulting in a lovely eye-popping pyramid-like structure that has dimensionality. The resultant folded form is much less than a 1/4 the […]

546: Château Chinon Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 21, 2016 in geometry, paper |

Another time sponge, based on a square grid initially that was torturous to fold and pre-crease. Based on Eric Gjerde’s tessellation molecule, it is an amazing use of paper that features largely an “all at once” collapse. Many tessellations sit flat while you do them, their interim stages are still flat – not this mongrel. […]
