TILE/TRIAL

Tiling Patterns exist in cultures the world over, dating back to Neolithic cave paintings. Geometric patterns are depicted on floor tiles while repeating, abstract geometric designs recur in mandalas, textiles, jewelry, and lace.  A key factor of tiling patterns is that they must be infinitely repeatable and thus, have the power to symbolize infinity. My curiosity lies in disruption—when various kinds of chaos are inflicted upon perfectly-arranged patterns, e.g., when two different patterns collide. Do they evolve into a more complex arrangement or, become a total mess? Check out my investigations.
