5.03_ Repetition, Variation & Rhythm

leaves4It’s your turn, part 2.

Exercise goals: Repetition, variation and rhythm created through critical analysis. (Critical analysis may sound like a fanciful academic task, but it can actually be quite simple. If you see an interesting pattern, spot it, consider what makes it interesting to you, and then repeat it as something else.)

Details: Take your exercise from E2, make a copy of it, or if you’re working digitally,  add a new layer. Next, on this copy or new layer, add a geometric pattern to your mask in a way that mimics or repeats one of the interesting rhythms or patterns in your mask.

Repetition and variation can easily become your first line of repair when creativity gets jammed up. “Is there something here that I can repeat and vary?”
