Michael Negus - Origami Polyhedra

Shown are multiple examples of modular origami, which is a where a model is created out of many identical "units" which slot together. Through constructing modular origami models, the modeller is, almost by magic, creating something three dimensional using two dimensional components. The resulting shapes are beautiful to observe, exhibiting many symmetries. It is this intrigue which draws so many mathematicians towards modular origami.

Shown in this image are: 5 intersecting tetrahedra (back), spikey icosahedra (left and right) and a spikey octahedron (front).

Michael is a Postgraduate Student in the Mathematical Inistitute, University of Oxford.
