Finding a track: Parquet Deformations

When we had to find something interesting to work on, I thought: ‘What happens when I repeat the same 2D geometry?’


uh-huh, if this is around the z axis, ‘what if we change the axis?’


& what if we lay them on the same plane but with 2 sides touching each other?


ooh, tessellation~

But what if it changes with every repeat?


I found morphing and tessellations tutorial here: 

this ‘Changing with every repeat’ (I subsequently realized) is also called parquet deformation, and I found a few visual examples to help me understand better.
