creation

The triangular tiles were arrayed into a series of parallelograms. It became evident that the geometry lent itself to a series of rows that could be stacked and repeated. This was used as a way of measuring the full sheets; one unit of tiles was made of six triangles pieced together into a parallelogram and measured approximately nine inches on each side. Four sheets were designed, a “six by six,” an “eight by eight,” a “ten by ten,” and a “sixteen by sixteen.” A Grasshopper script was used in Rhino to seed the sheets with clear tiles, replacing some of the white tiles. As the full sheet became larger, the seeding of clear tiles became less frequent, resulting in a more opaque sheet. White zip ties were used to attach the pieces to each other through small holes cut into the triangles.
