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!

  1. That is awesome! Would make a cool looking chandelier....but since it's made out of paper, guess it would be a fire hazard.
