Logarithmic Spiral

Designed and Folded by Evan Zodl


This is the top view of this model here. For the past few weeks I have been experimenting with various new fractal designs. Originally I was actually going to post a picture of this design, but while trying to reproduce it for the picture, I came up with a completely different idea altogether-- and this is the result! I am really satisfied with the result of this model. As the title indicates, the concentric star design can be repeated forever (or at least until the paper becomes too small to work with). What I like most about this design is how efficiently the paper is used for each stage of stars. Even with a 30cm x 30cm square, I was able to cleanly fold 5 stages. I also find it interesting how the layers separate naturally to make the model 3-dimensional. If there is enough interest in this design, I would certainly consider releasing the CP. For anyone interested who is also attending the upcoming OrigamiUSA Convention, I would be more than happy to teach you how to fold this in person. Please let me know what you think! All comments are greatly appreciated!

    I’ve been trying to figure out how you made this for a while but I’m really not having any success. Do you think you could send the crease pattern so I could try it?
