Percussion Origami Tessellation


This is an idea I had for a odd shape I haven't really seen done. 

It's not a twist tessellation. It's a collapse style tess. 

Not too complicated. Not too simple. 

It's a 32 pleat triangle grid. I used 24 lb bond paper. 

Repeating the design resulted in standard hexagons in addition to the odd shapes. 

It was a relatively simple fold. 

Some of the folds are a little fidgety, but all in all, it's pretty tame. 

Many of the folds are unnervingly misaligned/strayed from the grid, but they still make sense when you get down into it. 

When I came up with the concept I was hoping for something a little more dramatic, but overall, I'm pleased with the end result. 

How to fold it is probably pretty obvious. No secrets lurking in these backlit images. 

Still I do have a crude crease patter just to be thorough.
