   Pleat tessellations: sequence interaction.

The simple pyramid and bowl (1, 2) are the result of four basic sequences being folded simultaneously.
Different sets of sequences folded simultaneously shape the final model in different ways.
The possibilities are infinite, and a few interesting ones are shown here. Gallery Five explores more complex surfaces.

Medium: mostly elephant-hide (Wyndstone Marble) paper.
