If you want to pack the biggest possible circle in a square you can probably imagine what it looks like, but how about packing seven equally sized circles in a square? How would they be organized? How about packing 10 squares packed in a square? How would you fit them?
Erich Friedman, Associate Professor of Mathematics at Stetson University Florida has made a beautiful overview of scientific solutions to these 'packing problems'. Most of them are symmetrical and make sense immediately but sometimes they are far from obvious. We took these beautiful solutions and turned them in a colorful carpet.

The idea of this workshop was to create a big intriguing colored pattern for renovated houses with white walls. The size was therefore as big as the table. This time we also didn't want to use a pen, we used old big letraset stickersheets instead.
Today we tried to modify and examine they way we speak. Usually everyone has their 'way of talking' in a discussion or just in a normal conversation.
After generating the frame, we chose to speak about what kind of introduction we should have for the Conditional Design publication we are working on right now.
We recoded our conversation and transcribed it - read below. Unfortunately in Dutch.
