In a week of very little interest online, I stumbled upon an interview with Werner Pfeiffer that lead off with a fascinating exhibition piece later identified as a Flexagon. Obviously, I had to make one, an extensive investigation revealed that a flat flexagon is also referred to as an endless card with a plethora of instructional videos on Youtube [example here]

The videos demonstrate the entertaining rotation sequence, that may also be displayed as an architectural element. In this example, I have glued on black panels as image markers, though in the final version I will make a template to print the images on the card material first, then cut, score, and assemble the four required pieces…a little layout yoga.
