juniper


 

assignment

To investigate vegetation for shapes, convert these into modules and further into a pattern repetitive in every direction.

approach

Juniper was chosen as the source of study. Drawing and painting different parts of the plant and searching for interesting yet simple shapes.

solution

Pattern was formed first with pencil, then painted in two different BW forms, in two near -colour pairs, and in every complementary colour -pair. Every variation introduces a new way of seeing the same pattern. The whole process was later compiled into a book.
