How can we reveal the subtle in the obvious, the limitless in the limited?
Lecture by Tom Ockerse, RISD 2017
1 Design a “module”.
2 Repeat the module to create a simple pattern.
3 Develop a notation system to show the system(s).
4 Substitute parts in one pattern with color and texture.
to introduce systems thinking to integrate parts and wholes;
to observe how the limitless can emerge from the limited;
to inquire into the principles of unity in diversity;
to discover & draw out the hidden dimensions from the obvious.
COLOR AND TEXTURE STUDIES
