Just a thought

"Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern." - Alfred North Whitehead

Midterm... Dun, dun, dun...

I am capitalizing on the repetition, predictability and systematic nature of pattern. I use high intensity chromas to trace the pattern, shift away from it, create a new entity, and merge back into the pattern. Through this process I am looking at the experience of individuals attempting to reconcile their own identities in relationship to both personal, historical, and cultural traditions.

These two are a little different, they look more at integrating the change (being the individual) as part of the visual pattern rather than existing separately.
