this was just a monster pain. it came out OK, but it’s not what I thought it was. an interesting exercise though, and another set of folds to add to the notebook.
I’m finding all the different permutations of basic folds to really be interesting to explore. I feel like I’m mapping them out, as if it’s completely new territory. of course it isn’t, as many have done this before, but it’s new to me and I decided to keep it that way.
I know there are folks in the origami world who are much more adept at math than I (I just squeaked through calculus every semester, rather than acing it) but there’s more to origami than just the math. of course that’s an intrinsic part of it, but it’s important to not lose sight of all the other aspects of the art.
because when things look pretty, it makes people happy.
