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...
