[Image: An example of origami tesselation, turning surface to structure, called “Count?” by Christine Edison – whose other work is simply unbelievable: check out “Triad back backlit,” for instance, or this set of her “favorite tesselations.” While you’re there, don’t miss “New Years Eve Tess” or “Blue Snowflake Tess.” Christine also has a blog where you can click around on other spectacular examples of folds and pleats to your heart’s content.
