Paper mosaics: an exploration of tiling’s through origami

Presented by: 
Alex Bateman European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge
Date: 
Tuesday 28th November 2017 - 16:00 to 16:40
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Origami tessellations are a form of paper folding that first arose in the 1960s that repeats a simple origami unit to tile the plane. In this presentation I will explain how over the last 20 years folders have explored the space of mathematical tilings, as well as describe some of the tools and techniques that are used to transform tilings into foldable origami structures.
