Week 12 – Activity – Algorithmic Art

This weeks activity is Algorithmic Art! Basically I will create a set of rules and instructions to create something and all you got to do is follow it! Ever get bored in class! I get bored very easily, and tend to doodle or mess around with things I have near me. There are times I end up playing with my gum wrappers after I pop a piece of gum in my mouth. And today I will show you how to create some stuff out of a gum wrapper.

I have created a boat, airplane, hat, flower and few other things just from gum wrappers! I will keep this tutorial simple and teach you guys how to make a boat.

Step 1: Flatten out the foil!

Step 2: Fold it across once. ( Hamburger style)

Step 3: Fold it across again. (Hot dog Style)

Step 4: Fold it again. (Hamburger Style).

Now the foil should like like an even square.

Step 5: Take 2 of the 8 flaps and bend it across the square to form a triangle

Step 6: Bend the left over flaps the opposite direction off the flaps in step 5

You should now have a triangle with a hole in the middle

Step 7: Open the hole formed by the triangles and then bring the opposite ends together.

You should have a diamond like shape.

Step 8: Start at the top of the diamond, and gently pull the two sides apart so that the seam running down the middle of the diamond opens.
