Chinese Labyrinth (39,26)

This is  posted as promised on the links page – and to show off a “biggy”. Each supertile of this tessellation is made up of 2297 square tiles; one such supertile is shown in black. This should help you to disentangle the rest of the Labyrinth into identically-shaped supertiles tessellating perfectly to fill die unbeschränkte Ebene – it sounds good in the German, at least to an English ear brought up on the Goon Show.


Actually, I prefer the result of another way of colouring the supertiles – I call this CORRIDORS & CUL-DE-SACS


About davescarthin

After terminating academic and local government careers, long an independent bookseller/publisher at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire, UK. An antiquarian bookseller in two senses, I now have more time to be an annuated independent post-doc, developing the long dormant topic of lattice labyrinth tessellations - both a mathematical recreation and a source of compelling practical tiling and textile designs. Presenting a paper and experiencing so many others at Bridges Seoul 2014 Mathart conference was a great treat, as were the spirited MathsJam Annual Conferences in November 2016 and 2017. I'm building up to a more academic journal paper and trying hard to find practical outlets in graphic design and landscape architecture. I submitted 8 ft square tiling designs to the Wirksworth Festival Art and Architecture Trail in 2016 and 2017. I love giving illustrated talks, tailored to the audience. Get in touch to commission or to collaborate.
