Penrose Redux

I folded the first three in the series of Penrose tessellations out of good paper for my exhibit for the upcoming OrigaMIT convention October 19 in Cambridge, Mass. The 10-cell is folded from a 6” pentagonal sheet of Marble Wyndstone, the 35-cell from a 12” sheet of Tant, and the 70-cell from a 16” sheet of Wyndstone.

I’ll also be teaching the Penrose tessellations, the 10 and 35 cell versions. I’m giving them precut pentagonal paper to save time. I also finally got around to drawing out the crease patterns. Last year OrigaMIT was a great time, and I’m looking forward to it again.

I’ve also been working on a new butterfly design. More on that soon!
