Tessellation

The 8 year evolving, asymmetric distorted polyhedral tessellation that is the Tour ‘Icon’ is a graphic map that depicts all homes of a given tour connected to all other homes. Movement in space is given primacy over any one destination.

Overlay and study of the 28 years of known tessellations depicts population density, trends in development, enduring neighborhoods, economic stratification, commuting distances, etc.
