Tessellation Table

Tessellation Table, a centerpiece of the travelling exhibition Beyond Rubik’s Cube, challenges visitors to build complex repeating patterns from a kit of ordinary shapes. I developed a simple framework for managing user creations across the open sandbox interface, and algorithms to instantly determine whether a visitor’s creation can repeat through more than 20 distinct tessellation patterns.
