One Crease Challenge by NegaZero One Crease Challenge by NegaZero
In the Between the Folds documentary, Paul Jackson talks about one of his students asking about what's possible to make with just one fold. This concept interested me greatly, so I decided to experiment a little bit.

Created while listening to the beautiful music of Kitsune's Workshop.

Nice job! Inspired by one of my favorite documentaries EVER. Vanessa Gould won a peabody award for it! Muchly deserved.

Thanks! I didn't know she won a peabody award, but it's to be expected: It was a great documentary!

Yes. I have watched it many times. It is impossible for me not to be inspired every time I review it.

You took the words right out of my mouth. Every time I get into a creative slump, I watch it again, and it helps me find something new to try.

Yes... it is a wonderful thing for sure! I'm excited.. just finished a grackle and a floral arrangement. I wouldn't be the same without folding paper.

Same here. I'm working on a birthday card for my dad who's turning 45 here soon.

Cool! What are you making? Will you post pictures? (woah... your dad is younger than my boyfriend- he's almost 55)

I'm using this as the base of the card, and I'll put some more stuff on it to make it look nicer. I haven't completely decided what I'll I'll put on it, though. Whenever I get it done, I'll definitely post pictures of it.

I'm not going to make a gift for him; instead, I'm going to get him this.

I have to agree. Abstract origami, what little there is of it, is like a precious commodity.

Very cool idea! I've been trying to experiment myself with getting back to basics and abstract (When I'm not trying to do every model in every book I come across XD), so projects like this one interest me greatly. I used to know how to make an abstract crane with just one fold, but I've forgotten now. It looked kind of like the third one on the top though...sorta. Anyhow, Keep up th expimenting! I approve!

Thanks! I wish I could say it was my idea, but whatever. I love good abstract art, so I'm interested in this crane you're talking about.

Somethign that might interest you (I'm guessing) if you're interested in seeing what can be done with the basics is to look up John Smith's Pureland Origami [link] The basic concept is to do only mountain and vally folds (So no squashing, petal or reverse folds, stuff like that) and see if you can create models that are elegant in their own simplicity. I've been looking into it myself, but the only place to ge the books is off the BOS website if you want more then just the few diagrams offered off his site. It's an interesting challenge to be sure, and I find the idea rather attractive.

I like that idea, thanks. I'll probably try it out when I'm done with my current project.
