I’ve been spending time thinking about patterns – how can we form good habits, why is the world the way it is and are recent events a repetition of past events? The world around us is built on patterns and we look for them in all branches of science. Our bodies respond to this arrangement; they adapt and become calmer when a pattern is recognized, even if it is subconscious. Some patterns are so large that when we observe a small portion of the pattern, it seems chaotic instead of controlled. The work below is my response to the patterns I’ve been observing. This is the entire piece; I intentionally worked to the edges of the paper to give the impression of obscured sections. This way the viewer is aware that they do not have a clear view of the array and to add an additional scale. I began this work around the middle of December and it took me approximately fifteen hours to complete.
