LESSON 1: Objective- combining tessellations with photography using technology such as Photoshop. Intro to cropping; negative space vs positive space. (optional: consider actually printing/cutting the tessellations to create a puzzle.)
This image also reminds me a bit of identity like how your life is a puzzle and you spend your life trying to fit in pieces of the puzzle as in pieces of your personality/identity. I also think the plain, dull background is effective because it cobtrasts the bright colour of the image in the foreground.
