M.C. Escher's Tesselations

One of the themes of The Packing House is transformation. An artistic movement related to transformation is the art of tessellations. M. C. Escher is a well-known tessellation artist. You can check out his official site here.
Besides "Metamorphosis II" (above), "Reptiles" (below) is one of my favorite Escher tessellations. Stay tuned to this blog to find out what role tessellations play in The Packing House. You'll be transformed!
