These are beautiful. Do you have them in a frame displayed together as in the photograph?
Did you fold them randomly or follow a set sequence worked out in advance?
If in sequence, did you come to any conclusion as to whether there are an infinite number of them? I’m guessing the number cannot be limitless as all of them are folded from the same base are the same size when finished and are symmetrical.
Have you tried forming any of them into boxes as described by, I think, Kasahara in one of his other books?
Sorry for all the questions but these are fascinating!
I don’t have these pieces framed. I have them well protected in a book inside plastic sleeves!
I did not fold them randomly. I set myself to systematically make sets of 16 or 20 based on one initial move. For example, I made a set initially folding the central tips all the way out to the corners and then I did variations from there. Then I did another set, folding the central tips half way to the corners… and so on. That alone gives us a lot of variations.
From my experience doing these so far, I don’t know if an infinite number can be made, but my sense is that millions could be made! I feel that I have just scratched the surface.
I have not tried making them into boxes. I’m afraid to run out of places to store all this. 🙂
Amazingly done! Choosing Black & white – a briliant idea!!
neat folding, accurate and sharp!
I did have in mind the idea of systematicly fold a big nomber of folds, but now there is no point in doing it – it is done already..
These are stunning and the idea of using the negative space in black works powerfully. i contrast your group to the link you provided and visually, your alterations of form provide better contrast. with the color bases, color obscures the interior folded layers.
again, you provoke us to experiment. could you bring these to display at the convention?
Am interested in all forms of reference to Froebel’s interaction with Origami. See a lot of sequelae for teachers teaching science, poetry and literature in all grades. In teaching physics, and training teachers, P-16, at a University I used Origami to teach the electro- magnetic spectrum.Wonderful ,creative moments in allying all of these forms of knowledge through Origami. Froebel, the Educator, is smiling. Thank you. R^2
