As an artist and an editor of Artists Equity Newsletter, I have published in the past an article on Art and Science, which introduced the Baltimore’s art community to the interrelatedness of these two disciplines. My most recent fascination is with tessellation in Nature!

My present submission is a homage to the honeycomb tessellation and …cyclization, and possibly, to the natural evolution! Based primarily but not exclusively on the hexagon figure, they precede the human mathematics by millions of years. Cholesterol is formed by cyclization of squalene with predominant hexagon figure. So do a bee comb and the composite arthropod eyes with a distinct figure of a hexagon.

Hex2 represents simplicity and regularity of hexagon figure and periodic tiling. It is augmented by its three-dimensionality, imparting an illusion of perspective thru an overlap of the hexagon formations. It may be of interest to an architect but also represents a true nature of molecular structures in their 3D complexity.
