In an attempt to cover the plane, pentagons are symmetrically joined together edge to edge. There are three basic cases, with one of these at the center: a pentagon (control settings 0, 0, golden ratio ≈ 1.61803), a pentagram (control settings 0, 1, 1), or a decagon. Explore other possible configurations by varying the rotation and translations.
