Delaunay Triangulation

I continued to make drawings using 'Delaunay Triangles' this week. Checkout the Wikipedia entry on 'Delaunay Triangulation' if you want a complicated explanation to something so elegant. Here is a short quote from the entry - "In mathematics and computational geometry, a Delaunay triangulation for a set P of points in a plane is a triangulation DT(P) such that no point in P is inside the circumcircle of any triangle in DT(P). Delaunay triangulations maximize the minimum angle of all the angles of the triangles in the triangulation; they tend to avoid skinny triangles. The triangulation is named after Boris Delaunay for his work on this topic from 1934." I just enjoy the way they look. The drawings seem to describe three dimensional objects - to me they look like asteroids or some celestial object. The materials are acrylic ink pens on gray archival mat board. Dimensions: 32 x 40 inches.
