Aperiodic Azulejos

March 24, 2023

This is an entry for @sableRaph's weekly creative coding challenge. The theme for this week was "azulejos." Earlier this week, David Smith, Joseph Samuel Myers, Craig S. Kaplan, and Chaim Goodman-Strauss published a preprint of a paper about an aperiodic monotile, and Craig open-sourced some p5 code for drawing and tiling the monotile. I tried combining the tile with the azulejos aesthetic for the week.

This uses Framebuffers to cache the sub-tiles that make up the larger super-tiles, and also to make the feedback effect in the background.
