Pattern+ references the history of various iconic patterns as well as artists who are creating their own language within pattern.
As a part of the exhibition I created two installations that, via different means, considered the creation of pattern using discordant or irregular elements. One of these works, Polyrhythm, was commissioned for the entrance window to the Hawthorn Arts Centre, to remain throughout 2017.
Polyrhythm is a term more often associated with music. Where two or more different rhythms occur simultaneously alongside one another, to the same end. Such rhythmic conflict may be the basis of an entire piece of music, or a momentary disruption. For both my installations I appropriated polyrhythmic elements to explore material phenomena, duality and perpetual movement.
