Having experimented with different media, I chose mathematical fractal image making as one of the newest and most wonderful common areas between mathematics and art. Most of my fractal works of art are simultaneous combinations of traditional Euclidean and modern fractal mathematics and geometry that provide many impossible forms, things, terms, and qualities which would not be possible in lonely Euclidean or fractal mathematics or any other same areas without the aid of professional computers.

These three artworks represent transforming tessellations created as paying tribute to the masterful morphing tessellations of M.C. Escher. The second and third images are both photoshopped versions of image 1 after the application of different levels of the "threshold" tool. The main tessellation has been created through the hand placement of 21 and a half vertically zigzag columns of unit tiles side by side. Each column is also composed of four hexagonal unit tiles, the unit tiles of each column differing those of its neighboring columns at certain rates in the numerical parameters defining the morphing process throughout the tessellation. All hexagonal unit tiles were created in Ultra Fractal, which is a 2D fractal imaging program. More information about the procedure could be found in the paper " A Digital Tribute to M.C. Escher" submitted to Bridges 2013.
