Sourcing Patterns

Only he who has a different visual opening can see the world in another way and can pass on to his neighbour the information required to broaden his field of view...let us get used to looking at the world through the eyes of others.
Bruno Munari

Exercise 1
Using the image supplied by your tutor make tracings from it of shapes you find interesting. You need to produce a least five separate tracings showing your analysis of the images complexity.

Select your two most successful tracings and recreate them using the black and white paper supplied. Select one of your black and white images and invert it.

Exercise 2
Using the sheet supplied by your tutor create five separate tessellated patterns. Suggested words to help you with the pattern construction process:

Cutting, Folding, Interlocking, Repetition, Symmetrical, Asymmetrical

Photograph the results of this assignment for your records.
