Connection Unlimited Geometric Art in detail

Brush Pile In an earlier post I alluded to the fact that source material with the highest connectivity tends to have a limited range of color. Here’s an excellent example. I took this picture of a pile of brush when we were camping in Maine. Neutral colors but lots of geometric possibilities provided by the overlapping sticks and strong contrast.


Connection Unlimited Geometric Pattern by Douglas P. Hill Processing this into a pattern of eights (eight different interconnected eight-sided designs) produced an intensely connected pattern. The neutral colors actually help overload the connections, because at some distances lines appear to be continuous when they are actually created by different sticks with a similar width and tone. As you move closer these connections dissolve, but other detail becomes evident. This is a rewarding pattern to view from different distances. It is available for sale at Imagekind.Click on these thumbnails to view several degrees of enlargement.

I imagine this in the study of someone whose world revolves around recognizing connections: a physicist, investigative reporter, architect or ecologist, perhaps.
