Arbitrary substitution tiling by Chaim Goodman-Strauss

All these squares are congruent. Yes, its true, by tautology, because we can define our space of congruences ourselves. This is a substitution tiling, using these weird congruences. Amazingly, there are matching rules on these tiles, in this strange space, so that ANY tiling with these tiles satisfying the matching rules looks basically like this.

How to make it: MacPaint, of all things.
