DATE: 10/03/07 Lecture Outline Pattern - Pattern in nature & art - Pattern/repetition & rhythm - Specific terms relating to pattern - Pattern networks & the basic grid - Variations of the Basic Grid Pattern - Patterns result from the repetition of line, shape, size, color & value which have a predictable rhythmic effect. Repetition 1. Regular (types are: simple repeat, alternate repeat, inversion, gradation/progression) 2. Irregular (has an underline structure) 3. Random (no underline structure) - When unit forms are repeated at regular intervals with an equal amount of space surrounding each of them, they may be said to be in a “repetition structure”. - The repeated structure is formal and is the simplest of all structures. It is particularly useful in the construction of all over pattern. Pattern – a design composed through the repetition of visual elements and attributes within a single composition. Specific Terms Relating To Pattern Design 1. Motif o The unit that gets changed o Rotation of motif can create different visual effect to the whole pattern.

Unformatted text preview: 2. Super Motif o A single unit that is repeated in four-fold symmetry to form a new combined motif. 3. Counter Change o The lines of one shape form the boundaries of another usually through alternating the color. 4. Grid as a Block Pattern o visible grids o invisible grid (shape bound) Pattern Networks & the Basic Grid 1. Sliding – Each row of structured subdivisions can slide in either a horizontal or vertical direction (ex: half-drop pattern) 2. Change in Direction – The vertical or horizontal lines or both can be tilted in any direction (ex: diamond pattern) 3. Curving or Bending – The set of vertical or horizontal lines are regularly curved into the same size & shape (ex: ogee pattern, scales) Variation of the Basic Grid 1. Triangular Grid – the tilting of the direction of the structural lines then sub-dividing 2. Hexagonal Grid – the combining of adjacent spatial units of a triangular grid...
