These two basic structures,
dots and stripes, interact form grids.
As a grid takes shape, it subverts
the identity of the separate elements
in favor of a larger texture is what
pattern design is all about. Imagine
a field of wildflowers. It is filled with
spectacular individual organisms
that contribute to an overall system.
Today, surface pattern is a
vibrant discourse. The rebirth of
ornament is linked to the revival of
craft in architexture, products, and
interiors, as well as to scientific
views of how life emerges from the
interaction of simple rules.
By understanding how to
produce patterns, designers learn
how to weave complexity out of
elementary structures, participating
in the world's most ancient and
prevalent artistic practice.
