BRICK WALL by Nia

2 + 2 = 4.

It may be obvious, but it has to be said sometime. You couldn't do math unless you'd heard it and understood it.

Likewise, there are some obvious tessellation patterns that we can see in the world around us. Feel free to browser through our collection of them, or even contribute a photo or sketch to the collection.

The bricks in a wall are the perfect, ultimate example of a tessellation in our daily lives. Can you think of others? Draw 'em. Photograph 'em. Send 'em to us, and we'll happily display them on this website.
