Aperiodic Puzzle I by Chaim Goodman-Strauss

Any tiling of the plane with these two tiles must be aperiodic and the construction generalizes to any dimension Euclidean space. Here, a puzzle is presented: get the tiles into the outlined region. It's not that hard but may be fun!

How to make it: Drafted in Adobe Illustrator.
