Origami

Here is the list of my origami models:

  1. Net of a Tesseract

I generally make models that are in some sense “mathematical”; that is, I would prefer creating a dodecahedron to creating a dinosaur. Of course, I will sometimes break this rule.

I have another rule, which I am not going to break, and this rule is simple: no glue. Even the most complex models are held together only by friction. The mundane reason for adopting this rule is that glue, if present, is the weakest part of a paper model, starting to fade after only a couple of years. Besides, this rule will please origami folks who are obsessed with following old Japanese traditions.

However, I should upset these folks a little bit by saying that I am fine with using rectangular sheets of paper.

If my models inspire your own creations, I would love to see them!
