A bit of eye candy tonight.
Here’s the birds eye view of two collapsed twist boxes . What’s wild about these is that they are made from nearly the exact piece of paper.
Here’s the paper they were made from. Can you see the difference between them?
What’s going on is that the pattern is shifted by just a small amount. This small shift makes a big difference in the pattern that is created by the folds that rotate the design on the paper.
I have four of these little squares. I can put them together so that the design is rotated around a specific corner. Like this:
A design pops out! When I rotate the design around another point, another design pop-out.
and since this square has four corners there is another design for these rotations to make, but this is all for now.
I should be prepping for the Center For Book Arts class that I am teaching on Thursday and Friday, on how to make Zhen Xian Bao.,,
Good thing I’ve got tomorrow. Have been spending way to much time rotating things.
