10.0 Symmetrical & Asymmetrical Sequences Combined (advanced)
- Symmetrical and asymmetrical sequences can combine to form greater harmonies. Opposites can attract. Managing their similarities – or their point of interaction – is where design truly becomes an activity and not merely a noun. This is also a good time to review this course’s section on Unity > J1 (Exploring Unity & Composition) once again. The rational meets the dynamic. An explosion inspires a network. Chaos is modified by control.
- It’s your turn! Make a pizza! Explore combining symmetrical grid with an asymmetrical arrangement of ingredients. Start with a 12” round pizza shell and coat it with tomato sauce, pesto, or olive oil. Cheese it up, optional. Cut half an onion into 1/8″ slices and separate into rings. Randomly arrange the onion rings on the pizza shell. Randomly arrange pepperoni and olive slices, capers or other round ingredients for a variety of round sizes. Bake at 450-500°F for fifteen minutes. Take Pix.
- Cut up your pizza into 8 or 12 slices. Rearrange the individual slices back into a circle, making sure no two slices end up in the same original sequence. Take pix. Post on your fav social media sites. Finally, enjoy your altered progressive, symmetrical and asymmetrical dinner pizza!
