The goal of this workshop is to construct a beautifully a-periodically tiled 14-gon by making use of brightly colored triangular shapes. By discovering and making use of the mathematical properties of the triangles, the participants discover a way to create an a-periodic tiling, making use of the principle of (perpetual) inflation.
