Flat City at Artomatic 2009

Flat City, shown here on exhibit at Artomatic 2009 in the Navy Yard neighborhood of Washington, DC, is a fragment of locked biaxial weaving (tabby weave.) Usually I have been interested in triaxial weaves, but biaxial weaves have a classicism suggestive of this city. From a mathematical point of view (Akleman et al. 2009) there is negligible difference between triaxial and biaxial weaving, they can be as mixed just as freely as squares and triangles can be mixed in a tiling.
