Tessellations, Vertices, Lattices, and Fibrils

These diagrams are a development of the Extrinsic Vertices project, with an emphasis on radial symmetry and biomorphism. The Extrinsic Vertices diagrams are an effort to create biomorphism through geometry. Natural systems are often unitized and geometrical, so geometrical patterns can be an efficacious means of building biomorphism from simple curvilinear units.

Joe, thanks for sharing this work with Arcy and me over dinner. I think it would be really interesting to see this as an animation that shows how the lines organically grow out of the foundational elements. It would be like watching an organism grow becuase these have such an organic feeling to them.
