Essay: On the art of tiling and its use

For the course Creative Exploration of Structures we had to write an essay that shows a link between Art and Mathematics, and explains the mathematical theory. I chose to write this essay about tiling, a technique frequently used to quickly fill a plane without overlap. An obvious example of the use of this technique is tiling a bathroom floor, but there are numerous other uses. Click here to read the essay.
