Better World Cup Consolation Tessellations

I’m not sure that the Lattice Labyrinths suggested for Brazil and Argentina are worthy of those great countries.  Here is another, less conventional realisation of Serpentine (9,7) and Serpentine (7,9) in national flag colours. The supertiles are much bolder in form. The linked T’s must be symbolic of something.

Firstly for BRAZIL.

SerpentineBraziland now for Argentina. I’ve experimented with where to place each colour – this version wraps the football shirt blue and white around the badge colours.

SerpentineArgentina3This tessellation results from employing thumbed squares with the longest possible thumbs as the leading figures in the missing links/complementary graph.

P.S. Links to the how-to-do-it workbook: From the publisher, or via you-know-who , better,  from a good independent bookshop or just Google.


About davescarthin

After terminating academic and local government careers, long an independent bookseller/publisher at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire, UK. An antiquarian bookseller in two senses, I now have more time to be an annuated independent post-doc, developing the long dormant topic of lattice labyrinth tessellations - both a mathematical recreation and a source of compelling practical tiling and textile designs. Presenting a paper and experiencing so many others at Bridges Seoul 2014 Mathart conference was a great treat, as were the spirited MathsJam Annual Conferences in November 2016 and 2017. I'm building up to a more academic journal paper and trying hard to find practical outlets in graphic design and landscape architecture. I submitted 8 ft square tiling designs to the Wirksworth Festival Art and Architecture Trail in 2016 and 2017. I love giving illustrated talks, tailored to the audience. Get in touch to commission or to collaborate.
