Thank you for faving. Frankly it has been a very long time I added someone to my watch, I am interested to your tiling and tesselation art, that appeal as much to the mind as to the eyes.  I guess you are deeply into programming the algorithm for them by yourself, but do you happen to know any good Penrose tiling or other aperiodic tiling ready made program ?
markdow Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015
No, but I've seen some nice Penrose stuff, e.g.…… references "Penrose Tiler, Ultra Fractal 4 ... 
Penrose Tiler is a free program you can get here---> [link] "

I haven't seen much of other types of aperiodic tiling.
Aspartam Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2015
The link is broken ! Too bad, the penrose program I know are rather dull for artistic purposes.
I found (and lost halas) a facisnating article about Penrose tilings in arabic architecture -centuries before Penrose.
Incredibly artsy as well as puzzling.
