BREAK YOUR PATTERN February 2021
A pattern, or texture, is an image formed by the combination of organic or geometric shapes and color, and technically, an element or a drawing that is repeated, according to a symmetry and an order.
Lots of artists (i.e. Kandinskij, Klee), scholars and architects have dealt with patterns or have exploited their qualities within their works, starting from the repetition of the same element without variations, inserting different elements into the pattern, increasing the quantity of the information, without exceeding the threshold beyond which chaos is generated.
We will use non latin letters above all ( Indian, African, Classic Arabic, Kufic…) where we will feel more comfortable to transform them into different and new shapes and composition using all kind of tools and material we need to get more inspirational movements and rhythms. At the same time we will explore the theme of the composition and contrast between the empty and filled space.
The whole course and the method proposed will can obviously also be applied to any style of writing and therefore also to our latin letters.
This course, however, will also investigate the aspects of exit and breakout from the schemes and repetitions as well as the relationship between our ordered world and a more disobedient one.
We will finish with a simple binding and design for a book using the exercise sheets done during the workshop.
This course is suitable for beginners up to advanced.
