Patterns in Nature

As a part of my current project titled ‘Pattern Universe’, I am exploring patterns in nature and in culture, both of which I am deeply interested in.  The early days of my project have seen me sitting at the computer, exploring the pen tool for the first time in Adobe Illustrator. The individual units that make up this pattern represent the four different elements of nature: air, water, fire and earth at the same time as displaying the five fundamental patterns we find in nature: branching, spiral, explosion, packing and meandering.  I intend to use this free-style pattern as a stencil for screen-printing in a few days.  Watch to see how it evolves as nature itself does.
