1. Bursting through a plane
A very two dimensional image was exploded out of the plane by attaching it to an energetic, asymmetric 3D form.

I like about this, the way those nested rings in the tree trunk appear as a calm inner center, while in contrast, the 3D model makes a centrifugal outburst of energy. What a nice pairing of Yin and Yang energies!
2. Perilous Birding
Suppose one were to join a pair of identical 3D forms, one of which is folded inside out. Can an image bridge two opposite forms? Maybe for example, a mirrored image?
The birds arise on the normally extroverted space above, and their reflections are more deeply immersed in the oddly introverted space below.

3. Deep inversion!
This perspective, looking down onto the deck of the schooner Sagitta from high atop her masthead, suggests vertigo. The void volume and sheer pull of gravity of a double negative perspective is accentuated by some inward-inclined ribs.

4. Lights in the darkness
The swirl of bright spots spirals mysteriously among looming prisms. If the man has conjured up only the happy spiral, is he opposed by an ominous, unseen force?

5. Fish don’t swim straight
Guy Petzall had the insight, to make Ullagamis with curved cuts, and he sent me an example. What a pleasure, to make use of the extra fluidity for this swarm of fluttering fish!
Here’s the same composition but with straight cuts:
There’s lots of wiggle room for creativity using filters such as waves, foreshortening and other Photoshop effects, on Kirigami/Ullagami patterns.
