Pattern and Disruption: Tessellation

A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of a plane with a pattern of one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries. Tiles can repeat along the horizontal axis (X), the vertical axis (Y), or diagonally.
