Deep Space Transmissions Origami Tessellation

 This tessellation began as an idea for trapezoids around a collapsed triangle. As I was working the paper, it became clear that additional trapezoids were needed. 

I began working three around the triangle center, but quickly discovered that additional ones were needed.

With the central six sorted out, it was just a matter of repeating and using the grid to follow the geometry for how it would all coalesce. 

It's a pretty easy pattern to fold, so long as you're okay with doing small triangle collapses. 

I haven't seen it before, so it may be new.

The negative spaces are large pyramids. 

I've included my crease pattern at the end for those who might be interested. 

There's also an unlit closeup of the back side to help clarify how it's folded.
