When I take everyday scenes and render them into various symmetries, the resulting patterns seem to beckon from mysterious, unexplored realms.
My first designs were rotated three times from their starting position to create four-fold symmetry. Then followed five-, six-, and seven-fold symmetries. Sometimes a single rotation or reflection creates interesting effects.
Some designs offer a kaleidoscopic view. Others have an Escher-like impossible geometry. Some designs seem purely geometric from the distance, but on closer inspection reveal that they are composed of objects, plants, or animals.
Playing with symmetry is my way of combining mathematics and art.
