After ten years of making avant-garde videos, I was inspired to change my direction entirely, and go for a big adventure in the world of mathematics! I'm currently half-way through a maths degree with the Open University, and I'm loving it!

Update 21.3.14: I was near to completing my undergraduate degree, however, I decided to go it alone for a bit, so that I have time to read other maths books, solidify what I've learned, and further explore/revisit branches which particularly interest me. I may even write a paper before I finish it, and do everything the wrong way round!

I also now work in the daytime as a programmer, harvesting data, hunting for discrepancies and errors, and fixing robots, and by night and on the weekends I study maths. It is always a challenge to see how much stuff I can get done in a small amount of time. But the ultimate challenge would be to somehow work on maths problems at the same time as my day job!

I'm referring to any tiling of the plane initially- I suppose, an additional question would be, to what extent does the type of tiling affect my question? Presumably the degree of a tile, and the symmetry group must be interconnected?

Thanks for an excellent illustration of how Euclidean and non-Euclidean Geometry differs, and you are very clear!

I have rephrased my question, to hopefully clarify what I'm trying to ask.
