not quite turkey

Thanksgiving week residency,"tessellating falcons".  Tessellations are shapes that fit together without any gaps, and can continue to infinity.  In nature, the perfect tessellation is a bee's honeycomb design.  A checkerboard pattern is the most simple... repeating squares in rows and columns.  The abstract shapes above represent soaring "falcons", middle school mascot. Did you notice the white falcons too??  Sections were created by 175 8th graders, panel is awaiting installation, then I'll go back to finish/grout, hopefully this week.  Maroon and gold are their school colors.
