Over the years I've constructed many geometric objects from paper using a variety of techniques (origami, cut and tape, etc.). I have found paper to be a very versatile medium and I have wondered about the reasons for this. Can some aspects of this be transferred to a more virtual realm so more extensive constructions can be done (physically impossible constructions)? Could the result be used for other geometric and topological constructions and manipulations? I'll be discussing my experiences and my ideas on this along with how I think it fits into other aspects/types of visualization.
