San Francisco Bay
A view of San Francisco Bay, folded from a single square of Satogami paper. This origami painting is not based on any singular image, but a compilation of multiple pictures and my memories from a visit to San Francisco a few years ago. My point was capturing the spirit more than the detail: the steep hills both around and inside the city, featured prominently in so many car chase scenes in 70’s movies, and of course the Golden Gate Bridge spanning the bay. Transamerica Pyramid is obviously not to scale, but as in Egyptian hieroglyphs, size is about importance, not perspective. Any details missing from the picture are due to the famous San Francisco fog.
A crease pattern for this model should be published in PCOC 2021 convention book this fall.
