Perhaps I'm being a bit optimistic that people can see birds. The gaps that are not rhombic (like a diamond) remind me of birds. In the pattern, I see these birds circling around in big spirals. The program that generates this is a very short recursive program. The pentagons alternate between gray and orange. I was a bit surprised at first that there was only alternating colours in the pattern. Even though I programmed the colours to alternate, I am really only programming the polygons to fan in a tree-like fashion. There could be many incidental connections that occur. But on further inspection, all the loops have an even number of polygons so it would be impossible to have two of the same colour. In fact, since each colour represents a particular orientation two pentagon of the same colour can't share just one edge (they would have to share all five or none).
This one was fun to make. I wanted a cool snowflake to be a backdrop for a presentation (http://prezi.com/jie04ey9bhjr/zulo/) that I wa...
