Good vibrations

Good vibrations

Good vibrations is an original Op Art piece. It is a two tile tessellation where one tile is a set of diagonal lines that go from top right to bottom left, and another tile where the lines go from top left to bottom right. As the array of tiles is generated the lines at the edges match up to form an interesting “optical” surface pattern. The pattern is different each time as tile choice is based on a random number "coin flip" algorithm.

The visual optical effect or vibration is based on the relationship of a figure, the black lines of the tile, covering an equal amount of the background it is placed on. The concept of figure-ground was discussed in Gestalt psychology. Basically your brain tries to resolve either black lines as the ground or the white background as the ground. When it can't decide, the oscillation or visual vibration occurs.
