  • Did you know today is World Tessellation Day? The holiday was created by author @emilygrosvenor. She says she created it "to bring awareness to the fun of finding and making tessellations." So what are they again? Regular tessellations are made up entirely of congruent regular polygons all meeting vertex to vertex. Does it sound kind of mathematical? Well, it is.

Then, there are non-periodic tessellations which have no regular, repetitious patterns, instead they evolve as they expand over a plane. If you think of M.C. Escher's work, say, of his drawing of birds that morph into triangles, it falls under this type of tessellation.

There are lots of cool tessellations in nature, for example, honeycomb. These lovely tessellation illustrations (say THAT 10 times fast!) were made by @taigabluet.

I didn't know this day existed, but now I'm excited about it. If you decide to create a tessellation today, share it on Instagram with the hashtag #worldtessellationday in order to play along and share your work. .
