Video Description: Under the Generalized Dual Method, an arrangement of lines leads to a zonogonal tessellation. What happens if most of the lines are fixed, but a subset moves? Source: Russell Towle.

A tessellation  of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps. One may also speak of tessellations of the parts of the plane or of other surfaces. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible. Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M. C. Escher. Tessellations are seen throughout art history, from ancient architecture to modern art.
