|Erdely calls a planar, plane-filling object a Spidron. Upon three-dimensional deformation subject to specific constraints, the planar system generates a regular, dynamic, geometrical construction. Erdely's experiments have led to the idea of creating a system of space-filling which, instead of defining the solid figures that fill in the space, classifies the possible structures according to the characteristics of the surfaces that border the solid figures.|
