Thanks to Sir Roger Penrose OM FRS, the people of the world can today enjoy an infinitely-varying pattern of tessellating tiling upon their bathroom walls. I was on safari in Helsinki, hoping in vain to bag a giraffe, when I spotted the unmistakable traces on the ground of a different quarry.
Historical caution: the exact nature of the prize mentioned, and the number of people it was awarded to, I cannot say with any certainty. As I shot the video, I was going by memory. Several mathematicians were involved in this field of study, but Roger Penrose is normally credited with kite and dart patterns.
