Easier to see and make each stitch. Easier to watch the less intense increase of 1;1;2 and see it take shape.
There is the sense that I am making the motions but the piece is evolving to the dictates of the yarn and the tool and the ratio; perhaps that has to do with my 'surprise' at the result(s). The 100th monkey comes to mind.
Is this Origami? It is certainly folding, perhaps not in the traditional way; paper is fibre; linen is fibre. It satisfies me as Origami does and increasingly as freeform Origami does.
With the denser orange model I thought of a city core expanding into neighbourhoods expanding into suburbs. There was the feeling of being 'distanced' from what was happening but yet an awareness because of - what? - the fact that it was all connected and finding its own space and my place kept changing, stitch by stitch, and was never crowded. This was up until five rounds and 192 stitches. What would it be like at ten rounds and 6144 stitches. One hundred rounds?
All those areas, those rooms, those spaces! Imagine such a structure in a transluscent material, either solid or flexible, permanent or portable, serving as home(s)/gardens/habitats.
I wonder if the shape has been considered as a conduit for wind, or water, or electricity, or light, or .....?
Is there something to be learned here about the organization of excess?
Is this a nudge forward toward the missing link that we have yet to understand about time and which will give us a beneficial tool?
Tomorrow I plan to post a few suggestions for more immediate uses for hyperbolic crocheted items.
