While looking at Zentangle i thought that it looked a bit similar to Kaleidoscopes, so i just looked up some images and information about it, i think while doing my pentangles i will keep the kaleidoscope images in mind.
The idea for the kaleidoscope came from Scottish scientist David Brewster in 1816. He was studying many aspects of physical sciences including polarization optics and the properties of light when he invented the kaleidoscope. He named his invention “kaleidoscope” from the Greek words:
kalos = beautiful
eidos = form
scopos = watcher
Therefore kaleidoscope means “beautiful form watcher”

Andy Gilmore – Kaleidoscopic Art
A master of color and geometric composition, Andy Gilmore’s work is often characterized as kaleidoscopic and hypnotic, though it could just as well be described as visually acoustic, his often complex arrangements referencing the scales and melodies in music.
While researching i couldn’t figure out how the pattern worked and why triangle kept being repeated, but after looking up DIY Kaleidoscopes i figured out that it was a triangular tube which repeats the motif
This could be really interesting if i could take photos of my Zentangle through a triangular tube to see how it would look.
