Hexnet Hexagonal Tag Feed: douchebag A feed of tagged nodes. https://hexnet.org/blog RNC "Balance" <p>Screenshots from a Republican National Committee ad (circa July 2008) touting John McCain&#39;s supposed environmental/energy cred. Note well that the ad&#39;s name is &quot;Balance&quot;&mdash;the idea of balance obviously being closely associated with hexagonal tiling, with its six equally-spaced neighbors, and its (accurately) perceived association with organic geometries in general. It is also interesting because McCain himself had another ad a few weeks earlier (called &quot;Purpose&quot;) that featured a similar motif but with squares instead of hexagons. Could an ad featuring a three-dimensional tessellation of rhombic dodecahedra be next? Only time will tell.</p> Wed, 14 Apr 2010 03:03:24 +0000 https://hexnet.org/content/rnc-balance https://hexnet.org/content/rnc-balance
