Inspiration for Calder Community Patterns

On 09, Jul 2015 | In Inspiration, Project, Research | By Admin

We’re excited about the new Calder Library mosaic project.  The mosaic will be inspired by some of the patterns from the different groups of people who make up this Edmonton community.  Census data shows that the people of Calder originate from countries and cultures from all over the world, and that there is a large Aboriginal population.

Tessellation Patterns

On 15, Jun 2015 | In Inspiration, Research | By Admin

Tessellations form a class of patterns found in nature. The arrays of hexagonal cells in a honeycomb or the diamond-shaped scales that pattern snake skin are natural examples of tessellation patterns. Distinct shapes are formed from several geometric units (tiles) that all fit together with no gaps or overlaps to form an interesting and united pattern.  Tessellating patterns are abstract and non-representational which makes their interpretation open to the imagination of all people.
