BLACK SUN - An exercise in assymmetric tessellation.


Watch in HD on Vimeo, it looks bloody lovely. | Photography : Nathan Gibson | Music : Cellar Dweller

This was an attempt to construct a pattern that could tessellate outward from a single point. The first 'star' is surrounded by a circle of eight stars. This circle is surrounded by sixteen, and then one of twenty four stars, and so on upwards til the stencils break and the paint runs out. Patterns such as this are formed by atoms seeking bonds with their nearest neighbours in crystalline formation.
