# rm-hull / penrose-tiling.cljsLast updated 4 years ago

A Penrose tiling is a non-periodic tiling generated by an aperiodic set of prototiles. Penrose tilings are named after mathematician and physicist Roger Penrose who investigated these sets in the 1970s. This gist describes the tiling in terms of a rewriting grammar (an 'L-system') and renders using a turtle (https://github.com/rm-hull/turtle) onto a canvas.
