Modular Origami Constructions
July 24, 2020
In an earlier post I showed you how to fold and glue a 3-D unit to create a star ornament. Since then I have created many other interesting sculptures using these same units. I thought you might be inspired to create some of your own after seeing some of the possibilities.
It is amazing how many forms you can create from the same units and how you can vary the units for more variations. Check out the following:
Here is another one:
Notice that some sculptures use half units as well as the full ones.
You can also create animals and people.
Below are some of the original forms I created:
As I experiment with creating so many variations of the same basic form I am reminded of the amazing variations possible in the creatures God created in the original creation week. Built into each creature was the DNA that allows for many variations within each kind of animal, plant, fungi, Protist, or Monera species. Though we are limited in how far we can take our creations, just think of how amazing it is that God’s creations are living and continue to function throughout their existence and able to pass on design traits to future generations. The complexity is beyond our ability to fathom.
Why Not Take the Challenge?
Why not try to create some of your own designs using these modules. If you do, send me some pictures so I can appreciate your works of art.
