Pattern Fields: Omnidirectional Pattern Spread


Pattern Fields play many roles in our lives - from the repeating patterns on the surfaces in our homes or clothing, to the patterns of information and time which are formatted into endless repeating cycles. The series Omnidirectional Pattern Spread consists of ceramic tile installations that riff off of these different systems of ordering. Often, they take weave drafts (patterns that are used for threading looms to make patterned cloth) as their initial inspiration, but they also evoke the incremental printing process of the inkjet printer or the tell-tale signs of degraded digital imagery which results in sudden stripes or bands rather than integrated patterns.
