This piece was selected for the 2019 JMM Art Gallery

Here is an excerpt from the submission:


I was inspired to create a tessellation of my own, working off the basic square weave. This piece complicates a basic square weave by adding many more interwoven patterns and blowing up each vertex into a cycle of interwoven squares. This tessellation is different from some other origami tessellations in that it has an extremely nice back as well as front, containing cyclically overlapping squares at each corresponding intersection of weaves on the front. I thought it was amazing how a piece of folded flat paper was able to so aptly imitate a woven pattern. Although I went through many failures, the result was well worth the effort.
