I actually think that smaller tiles might help with making it more
usable. As they are now, they are approximately the same size as icons,
which might be distracting. We would need to try it in real environment
to see which is better.

Also as nicu noted, it might be good to shift the center of attention
away from the optical center. He suggested rule of thirds, golden ratio
might be another alternative.

I would perhaps make the design more random as a next step.
