TANGRAM drawings = versatile art / by christina dy

While going around Jogja, I noticed there were a lot of clay tiles used for roofing. That's all I looked at when I walked, roofs. 

I've started doing drawings about tangrams, but this time, I wanted the drawings to be actual tangram pieces that you can mix and hang on your wall according to your mood and wall size.

Which actually came in handy, because the wall that they decided to hang my work on was square-ish. My original work was landscape-oriented. 

Here's a photo of my final work: I mixed the geometric roof tiles with organic greens that I saw growing around the rooftops. Photo by Anisa :)

I'm quite happy with how this turned out. Looking forward to doing more tangrams and geometry-based works!

p.s. Mathlete forever!
