Tessellations

Chapter I



Untitled 7



Blending art, science, and architecture, this body of work explores the process known as tessellation (an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together, especially of polygons in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping).

This successive branching organization is excellent for moving currents from one place to another in an effective and evenly distributed and is found throughout nature (think of the the flow patterns of rivers and the capillaries that bring blood into our lungs and brain, the structure of trees and their root systems, and the path of lightening just to name a few examples). 


This work was inspired in part by Adrian Bejan and J. Peder Zane who write extensively about this form in their book “Design in Nature: How the Constructal Law Governs Evolution in Biology, Physics, Technology and Social Organization”
