Geometric Art 2005byarda12128855a_1 in Detail

Today I’d like to show you the underlying structure of a pattern. The one I’ve chosen is made from a photograph of wet leaves and pine needles, taken in my back yard in 2005 as the title (vaguely) suggests. You can click through to my Imagekind gallery for magnified views.

You can see a 12-sided figure in the center and a different 12-sided figure repeated in the center of each quadrant. Each of them is surrounded by 5-sided figures. Filling the gaps are two different 8-sided figures.

Each piece of the pattern is cut from the photograph. Since each piece is next to a reflection of itself the color and texture is continuous, so it may be difficult to see where the cuts are. Here is a diagram of them, in red.

Here is another view of the underlying design. In this one the reflected pieces are in black and the unreflected are white (or vice versa).

Without further comment, here are some enlarged details of the design:

I’m always pleased if you comment, of course!
