Otto the Grocer tessellation

Why Otto? Because it’s a palindrome, a word that can be read both forwards or backwards. And the Shopper’s name is Hannah, also a palindrome. Great for tessellations with mirror symmetry.

You are what you eat. Go see the movies “Forks over Knives” or Michael Moore’s documentary “Super Size Me”, or “Hungry for Change”, and “Food Inc.”, and the list of food documentaries goes on.

In this tessellation there appears a colourful wave of product packaging, all competing to attract our attention. Buy me, buy me. With Otto the Grocer peddling his specials flyers, and Hannah happily pushing her cart down the aisles. Stick to the perimeter of the grocery store I say, your body will be happier.
