The Worlds of M.C. Escher

These tiles are part of The North Carolina Museum of Art’s exhibit: The Worlds of M.C. Escher. I used the tiles to demonstrate how Escher uses rotational symmetry to create his Reptiles tessellation. My video interview will be included in the iPad app that will accompany the museum’s Escher exhibition. I also plan to use the Kenan Science Library printer to create 3D models for lesson plans in my First Year Seminar, “Math, Art, & the Human Experience.”
