This is not origami -- not as most of us use the word. Modular kirigami, maybe. But then, many languages do not make a distinction between "to fold" and "to bend." In this model, we bend paper into cylinders and cones and weave them together into a globe. No, an actual globe, with countries and oceans and whatnot.
Borromean refers to the Brunnian property of this model -- constructed from nine linked loops, not one of the loops actually passes through any other. If you are familiar with the three-circle symbol for the Trinity -- or with Ballantine beer -- you know the Borromean rings. We're going to cube that. In a spherical way.
This model will involve cutting with scissors. It will involve glue. It will involve scoffing at purists.
- Uses cuts.
- Uses glue.
- This uses non-square paper: We will be cutting shapes from American letter paper.
- This is a modular/composite requiring 3 sheets.
Supplies will be provided, with a $3.00 cover charge to cover the printing.
