A Birthday Labyrinth for BBC Radio Derby, Hurrarch for March 18th.

As an occasional “Loudmouth” on  Sally Pepper’s BBC Radio Derby morning show, it’s time I put my tessellation where my loudmouth is, so here is a design for Sally and for everyone else born on 18th. March, Honeycomb Lattice Labyrinth (18,3). This design can also be seen on Radio Derby’s Facebook page for September 17th (2014). A search for interesting events that have happened on this calendar day has come up with little more significant than:

1993 – Sri Lanka beat England in a (cricket) Test Match by 5 wickets.

1911 – The state of North Dakota enacts a hail insurance law.

So 18th. March is up for grabs by anyone interested in making history. In the intervening six months you’ll have to make do with:

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.
