There are many types of twirls: that love symmetry, that break symmetry, that show structure, that hide structure and that cannot decide. But there is mathematics behind all of them, with polyhedra structures, symmetries, parametrization, limits and equivalence classes. Spirals keep an artwork together and give a life. Twirls behave like organic forms, they live themselves and fight against external forces with the friction and elasticity of the paper. Regular polyhedra give a basic structure and symmetry. Creases and spirals transform the flat sheets of paper into spatial shapes, or modules, which join only with forces of elasticity and friction of paper. Visible area of modules create a unique surface pattern, sometimes descending inside.
