Passion for Pattern

After creating a the ‘Patterns in Nature’ to use in this months project brief, I went on a side path to explore how I could manipulate the pattern and its elements on Adobe Photoshop.  These are my most successful outcomes in the short time I had to side track, and the results left me feeling really excited and curious about delving into further experimentation outside of this project brief. I am intrigued by how pattern simply evolves in it’s own way given the chance to do so. Photoshop and Illustrator have enabled me to experiment with just a few of infinite possibilities.  In a lecture about Patterns in Nature, I was told that as artists we need to understand patterns, as they are the order and structure of all things connected.  Patterns provide us with knowledge and familarity, which is why I feel so passionate about pattern in all its forms from nature or otherwise.  We find patterns in language and mental processes, mathematics and science, sound, music and technology, human and animal anatomy, in natures cyclical seasons. It is no wonder then, that we are drawn innately to pattern.  For more about pattern and how we perceive them, check out Jason Silvas clip  ‘To Understand is to perceive Pattern’
