This talk focuses on mathematics behind Tess-celestial that build on open and immersive science concepts. Tess-celestial is an exhibit that features tessellations of the hyperbolic plane, also available at https://immersive-scholar.github.io/tess-celestial/. It explores the interplay of art, nature, culture, shape, perspective, and mathematics in everyday life. Created using the software Tess and KnotPlot, these tessellations show symmetries of the hyperbolic space, convey the beauty and subtlety of mathematical objects and concepts, and how they can be combined to obtain beautiful visualizations. Tess-celestial was created as a part of the Immersive Scholar project at NC State.
