Abstract

A new and fast algorithm is presented in this paper for the automatic generation of aesthetic patterns on aperiodic tilings by means of dynamical systems. The Penrose tilings are used as illustration of which invariant mappings are constructed for the creation of striking patterns. A modified convergence time scheme is described to enhance the artistic appeal of generated images. This algorithm can be used to create a great variety of exotic patterns with various aperiodicities.
