September 2020 Origami Design Challenge - Falling

Post by Grace159 »

The theme for September is the action of falling.

This can be a model which is designed to fall such as the models in the video below.

It could be a model that drops an item from one level to another like the paper water-wheels.

Or it could depict an item falling such as a leaf going over a waterfall.

More than one sheet of paper is allowed of any shape.
Cuts can be made.

Nepafarius will be the judge.

Good luck and Happy folding!

I saw this on Facebook after I posted this challenge and I do have to wonder if I wasn’t subconsciously influenced. Regardless I feel this challenge has a lot of space to create something new. Maybe you can make your portal interactive?

I figured it wasn't a coincidence :wink:

What do you mean by «interactive»?

I was thinking along the lines of a magic trick. A paper lever hidden behind a black box that would raise one of your already made portals on one side as you lowered a newly folded whole figure in white on the other.

Of course if you want to break ground in science and defy gravity I fully support your efforts ;)
