Repeated kawasaki twist

Postby Cadix » March 5th, 2017, 6:54 pm

I came upon this the other day. It's just stacked kawasaki twists, but I like how it holds together on its own while compacting the paper. It doesn't seem super useful, but I still like it. I don't think I've seen it before, but I can't imagine I stumbled upon it first.

Stacked square twists (the real name for what you call Kawasaky rose twists) have been done before. I can think of Helena Verril's Ziggurat although twists are alternated :

Samuel Ver Duin created a model he called Sixth Column which is a hexagon twist stack:

One cool thing about these stacks is that they usually can be untwisted and erected.

That last picture reminds me of Chris Palmer's work, especially the flower towers. :)

Thanks for the heads up. I figured that was the case, but it was nice to see some examples. They're kind of fun to make out of very thin paper, since you can do a bunch of twists and end up with something not very thick.
