I have been doing origami since elementary school. I have focused on interlocking origami modules and their mathematical properties, primarily creating polyhedral structures. I have been inspired by Meenakshi Mukerji's "Compound of Five Octahedra,'' which allowed me to use it as a stepping stone to creatively isolate various shapes and recreate them into new forms. Combining these slightly modified modules and my newly designed interlocking modules allows me to create different models.
