    I was bored so i started doing some origami. I found instructions for some cool module origami. Both of the shapes are made from a number of identical modules. These ones are called sonobe modules. I made a Stellated Octahedral and Stellated Icosahedral. the octahedral is made from 12 modules...the icosahedral is made from 30 modules. I think they came out okay..not perfect..but they are my firsts ones. [​IMG]

    hey nice work. iv been a paper folder since i was 10. such a relaxing thing to do.. its amazing what you can do with a square piece of paper.. its also amazing what paper folding is doing in science.. its leading into genetics.. ie.. folding the genes like you would a piece of paper.. a cool movie that explores the art of origami is:

    Independent Lens: Between the Folds
    (Exploring Origami)
    2008NR56 minutes

    Filmmaker Vanessa Gould takes you on a provocative odyssey into the mesmerizing world of modern origami, where artists and scientists use the ancient art form to craft works of delicate beauty and to model cutting-edge mathematical theories. Pushing the envelope of origami to include caricatured portraits and elaborate abstract designs, these experts examine how paper folding can reveal the profound connection between art, science and philosophy.

    its a neat movie.. lots of cool things being done with paper.

    keep on folding..

    chris.

    yeah..its amazing alright. When i was 10..we had this calender. everyday had instructions for a new origami model and you would us the piece of paper from the previous day to make that model. I loved it. We lost it in the tornado and im 13 now and i have forgotten how to make anything except for a water bomb and ninja star..i just started doing origami again yesterday and i learned to make some cool polyhedrons. I think ill try and make at least one new model everyday...its really cool and fun. Best part is you can get ahold of some form of paper and a few folds later..its amazing looking.

    oo thats to bad.. its a something that will go through life with you.. i have gone a year or so with out folding a piece of paper,, then i would get excited about folding again and go nuts for a few years etc.. im 35.. so been doing it for a little while.. with the internet should be even easier to get info compared to when i started.

    how I got into folding paper.. A friend of mine showed me how to make a paper balloon, then i went to the public library and found a book on the subject.. at that time probably only a hand full on the subject.. and the second thing I learned how to fold was a throwing star.. and i was the hit of the class.. and been folding on and off ever since :)

    its funny, when I go out to dinner ill usually fold my tip into something.. depending on the sex of the waitress or waiter. they always enjoy it more than the tip i think sometimes..

    Nice, I remember having to make a stellated dodecahedron for my geometry class, it was pretty cool but was difficult and took a little while for me to make :p

    Whoa, my friend used to make these all the time. He'd ask me every day if I had any paper scraps he could use; I must have torn up at least 50 useless assignments per month or so.
