Basic Description

Look at Blue Wash for more information to learn how the image that is tiled was created.

A More Mathematical Explanation

Note: understanding of this explanation requires: *Single Variable Calculus

Essentially, an equation was used to map the points of


  • eq [...]

Essentially, an equation was used to map the points of


  • equation d(x) = 1 - \frac{1}{1+x}, limit is 1

d(y) = 1 - \frac{1}{1+y}, limit is 1

  • distance compressing warp
  • infinite tiling of Euclidean plane mapped onto a rectangle (or ellipse)
  • mapping (x,y) from Euclidean plane unto (d(x),d(y)) in rectangle
