Truth and beauty — 5 Comments

  1. Hoisted by my own cuckoo clock. I’ll need to think about it and get back to you 😉

    Maybe from my “collection”, in terms of getting “most from the least”, my “baby bird”, “Sue’s Flapper” and “Ali’s Dish” would probably come closest.

  2. Thanks for these examples.
    I didn’t realise the number of raw edges could be a consideration. Which way does it go though, is it a case of less is more? In theory I suppose the more displayed, the simpler the model, but surely simple can also be ‘true’ – A lot to mull here for sure!

  3. “A closed sink is an inversion of a point, but in such a way that it is not possible to open the point flat while performing the maneuver. This makes closed sinks extremely hard to perform. In fact, from a strictly mathematical viewpoint, it is impossible to perform a closed sink using a finite number of folds (and what is impossible in mathematics is usually pretty hard in reality)” —Robert J. Lang
