Tessellation Constellation is a piece that pivots around geometry and architecture, as wooden pieces are bound to create an intricate formation of "constellations". The individual groupings of geometric structures against the deep royal blue wall truly give the installation a portrayal of an alluring galaxy of stars.

A tessellation is an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together, especially of polygons in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping. For me this represents the idea of people in the world- we are all connected to each other and when one moves it affects the shape of the rest.
