Pentagons and Scalene Triangles

This dot pattern diagram from the series, Self-similar Boundaries, is based on pentagons and scaling scalene triangles. Neither the design of the tile set nor the arrangement of tiles makes any attempt to create symmetry or even a tiling that fills the plane. Nevertheless, the tile set and tiling are interesting in that they can be used to generate tendrils that extend indefinitely. In this case the tile set scales down seven times.
