What Is the Definition of Pattern in Art? A principle of art and the universe itself, pattern means the repetition of an element (or elements) in a work. Artists use patterns as decoration, as a technique of composition, or as an entire piece of artwork. Patterns are diverse and useful as a tool that grabs a viewer's attention, whether it be subtle or very apparent. How Artists Use Patterns Patterns can help set the rhythm of a piece of art.

Algorithmes, mode d’emploi Elle s’appelle Ada, Augusta Ada King, comtesse de Lovelace, fille du célèbre poète Lord George Gordon Byron. Certains vous diront qu’elle a juste joué un rôle de représentation publique, mais ne les écoutez pas : c’est bien grâce à elle que le premier programme informatique a été écrit (cf. dossier en ligne sur DocSciences). Elle travaille avec Charles Babbage, mathématicien, sur la « machine analytique ». Pour faire marcher cette future machine, Ada crée des « diagrammes » qui ont pour but d’expliquer comment doit procéder la machine pour arriver au résultat recherché... et ceci indépendamment de la façon dont sont réalisées ces opérations. Ce sont des « algorithmes ».

Design in Art: Repetition, Pattern and Rhythm Tutorial Repetition is an object, form, or figure that is repeated. To get an idea of the effect of repetition in an artwork, look at the illustration below. There appears to be two boxes. In the first box, there is one colored circle. The second box is overflowing with multicolored circles, so many that they cannot all be contained within the box. What words do you think of when you look at the two different boxes? Symbolinks : La langue des nombres d'après Pythagore. Tout est nombre Les nombres sont l'essence des choses Tous les hommes aspirent à la connaissance et l'objet de cette aspiration est la vérité.

Is Your Sense of Direction Innate? From Betty Crocker to Tommy Bahama, plenty of popular labels are "named" after fake people. But one product with a bona fide backstory to its moniker is Converse's Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers. The durable gym shoes are beloved by everyone from jocks to hipsters. But who's the man behind the cursive signature on the trademark circular ankle patch? As journalist Abraham Aamidor recounted in his 2006 book Chuck Taylor, All Star: The True Story of the Man behind the Most Famous Athletic Shoe in History, Chuck Taylor was a former pro basketball player-turned-Converse salesman whose personal brand and tireless salesmanship were instrumental to the shoes' success. Charles Hollis Taylor was born on July 24, 1901, and raised in southern Indiana.

The Visual Elements - Pattern ANDREW GOLDSWORTHY (b. 1956) Rowan Leaves Laid Around Hole, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, 25 October 1987 (photograph) “Just at present you only see the tree by the light of the lamp. I wonder when you would ever see the lamp by the light of the tree.” [3] Andrew Goldsworthy subverts our experience of nature to make us look at it afresh. Goldsworthy is an environmental artist who uses the raw materials of the landscape (leafs and petals, twigs and thorns, snow and ice, mud and rocks) and sympathetically manipulates them to create an unexpected sense of order within the unrestricted growth of the natural environment. His sculptures are hidden in plain sight and if you encounter one while on a stroll through the woods, it feels as if some alien intelligence has been at work - and to some extent it has, as something new has been brought into being by the consciousness of the artist in collaboration with the spirit of nature.
