Experiments in folded surfaces re-visit “origami” surfaces to discover variants or less familiar topologies. Undulating tubular forms, hyperbolic undulations, simple toroids and twisted variants or spherical versions, are examples. Manipulation of fold curvature is achieved manually in most instances, with the eventual goal of automating the folding process through software to develop responsive surfaces in physical materials.
