Tessellations

Tessellation is the process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps.

Simply, Tessellations are shapes that tile perfectly forever.

Objects like triangles, squares, rectangles and pentagons can be found tessellating naturally in many living and non-living items.

The overall concepts is quite simple but the process involved in designing & executing a complex
pattern can be very complex. 

Tessellating Elephant Pattern
Maurits Cornelis (M.C.) Escher the father of modern day tessellations created his entire collection by hand. Fortunately, I was able to use the assistance of a computer. Even with this assistance, each piece took me several hours to complete. 

I have always thought it would be interesting to push the boundary to see where tessellation and photography meet. 

The collection of images are a tribute to the master artist.
