Hola amigos. So. I've reached a rather boring lull of time between after-the-internship and before-school-starts-again periods and have been using it ever so badly. I've got half-started stuff and ideas-in-the-head stuff that I need to get working on before I get too busy to do either. 

Anyways, as I discovered old origamis from a year ago, I found this one, which just happened to kind of pop nicely onto the existing lamp shade in my hallway. So, for now it's found a decent home up there.

It's been stuffed in a closet for a year so that accounts for it's rather squished, non-symmetrical shape. If I find some fishing line, I could fix it so it gets a nice plump round shape since I'm not sure I'm liking how elongated it hangs. But, that's just adding more to my to-do list of things that will probably stay at the bottom of the priority list. Ta!

It's really been ages since I've had time to sit down and do some real folding, let alone post anything (do I start every post with this?). And sadly, that may be the case for the next couple of weeks as I get settled in my new apartment. Despite that, I've been saving this little work in progress for a rainy day post.

So here's something that I've been working on literally piece by piece, day by day. It started with random scraps of paper I had by my desk at work which I began folding into super simple 9-fold patterns out of boredom. I know I should have been working but I blame a slow laptop that couldn't handle Solidworks all the time. So as the program lagged (minutes at a time) I'd fold a unit as I waited. After just a day, I had a handful of little units that I combined together. After a week, I had a huge long chain. I know this story is really exciting, so I'll continue... Basically this little work in progress came from being bored waiting for my computer to catch up to me. So voila! 

I had to leave this mini-creation in Hong Kong but that's okay since I still didn't really know what it was going to turn into yet. Now I can restart the project when I get the time, knowing how to improve on it and perhaps with a better direction in mind. So in all honesty, I am not sure when my next post will be but let's hope that when it arrives you will get to see whateverthisis V2.0!
