Pattern in Kaiserslautern – Photo Cornelie Leopold

Since we unfortunately cannot travel because of Corona, we go on a journey of discovery for patterns in our respective environment: patterns, surface ornaments, parquetry, tessellations, .... You can find Patterns in a wide variety of contexts: Facades, floor patterns, ornaments, fences, manhole covers, everyday objects, .... Pay attention to the inconspicuous! First, make a photographic collection of different patterns.

Decide on three patterns in different contexts, functions and materials, which you describe more in detail as well as analyze by drawing. In particular, record the geometric transformations that are included in each pattern. Create the pattern by yourself using the geometric transformations and describe the steps to create the pattern.

Finally, materialize one pattern in a technique of your own choice (drawing, painting, folding, mosaic, woodcut, ...).
