Coming back from vacation it has been hard to find time to make designs, but last night I was expecting to play table tennis, only to discover that they were sanding the floors. So having a free evening, I made this new design. It’s another attempt to deal with a fundamental quality of reflective geometric art: how do you cut it off in a clean and appealing way? This one uses circular areas to repeat a small portion of the image around the circumference. This simplifies the border to a manageable degree. When several different parts of the image impinge on the border it becomes very difficult to line them up with parts of the image that are good border material — and make an interesting internal pattern at the same time.The source is a photograph of barberry bushes in the fall.
Here is a black and white representation of the reflection pattern used.
