Interchange Tiles

[Image: Four tiles by Jim Termeer].

"This is a set of 25 ceramic tiles," artist Jim Termeer explains. "The patterns are based on satellite imagery of major highway interchanges that have been built worldwide."
So you can decorate your bathroom with the freeways of Barcelona.

As a little kid I used to make diagrams of what certain intersections could look like if they were turned into controlled access freeway interchanges. These tiles are very appealing to me.

Now that is fun! I knew what they were (sadly?) before reading the post — only the photos appeared in my RSS feed.

And it's also a bit scary . . . some of those are inordinately complex . . .

These remind me of my photogrammetry days. I love cartography as art.

What no SPUIs or Stacks? The interchanges on the tiles aren't very sexy, they could do much better.
