Spot the opportunity” Illusion Poster

By on September 14, 2012

Have you seen this #Escher_inspired poster released by Etrade Australia recently?

Titled Spot the opportunity, this poster was done by use of a tessellation technique.

Tessellation is a process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps. As we noted before, tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M. C. Escher, who was inspired by studying the Moorish use of symmetry in the Alhambra tiles during a visit in 1922.

Here’s an assignment for you today: can you think of one natural tessellated structure?

Perhaps bees and honey may serve as a quality hint ;D
