Yesterday I posted on my TooManyPies blog about strategies for deciding what to work on each day, since I have so many things on the go at the same time. A while ago I was experimenting with line drawings that can be placed in any pattern combination—images that can be flipped, mirrored, rotated and even staggered—they aren’t constrained by a single orientation. As I was writing the post I decided to give it another go and this is what I came up with.
Here are 3 of the original drawings:
They line up to make a pattern whichever way you turn them. It’s a simple idea but loads of fun when you digitally manipulate them in photoshop:
A bit Cubist, a bit Futurist and very satisfying mathematically! Now I need to try the idea with more complexity—I’d like to create a more intricate network of lines that can be arranged in multiple ways.
Day 911/90 (approximation?)—I have to get an app that will countdown for me +×÷=∞
Ooh I love this idea and your execution of it! Can’t wait to see your refinements.
I’ll use this concept the next time I make tiled images, to give them a subtle variety. ☺
