Today I had "the click" on 2-dimensional lattices ( M336 - GE3 ). Let me show you some output of my M336 Mathematica notes.
The top-left part of the image is a building block from which, for example, a frieze or a lattice is constructed. The image, or the plane, of the building block is deformed by two vectors such that a new shape is created. The lower part of the image is a 4-by-5 lattice of a deformed copy of the image above.
Before I started M336 I rather looked up to studying the 17 Wallpaper Groups. Mainly because I thought they were no fun, boring. And now that I am close to studying them in GE4, I can't wait. I hope to be able to computer-generate some of Escher's art with the program I made. But more about that another time, but soon.
