Where to Begin

triangles_laser_web_2.jpgFor this For this assignment, I started my inspiration gathering by digging a deep rabbit hole inside the deths of the Internet and Pinterest, looking at examples of seamless patterns and ending in a lot of interesting directions. You can find my Pinterest board bly clicking on Seamless Patterns.

My dominant inspiration was driven by “gelosie, or celosias”, the intricately designed windows that come from traditional Moorish architecture, famous for their geometric designs. Triangles and stars are dominant visual elements in these windows, and their modular repeatability has a magical effect on my inspiration.

Another geometric shape I have strong affinity for is the hexagon, with its honeycomb structure reminding of the bees and their cooperative nature. Also the hexagon enables a variety of ways to play with sub-modules within it, which is really cool.
