Post Project 10: Symbols, repetition, emergence and transformation

In this next set of images I have just played with repetition. I began with a simple image and then played with size numbers and textures and then, just through playing, began to process a set to speak of emergence or evolution.

Little differences in scale can have big effects.Symbols 4 (9 of 12)

Framing still makes a difference in how images speak. This can be seen by my removing the boxes the symbols are located in or by placing of the repeating symbols in a continuous blue strip within a much larger frame box.

I then experimented with overlaying the symbols and that create much more dynamism within the images.

Thoughts
All of these images offer something of a paradox that show movement, indeed independent movement, yet stillness and numbness are the essence of paralysis. I then moved on to experiment with repetition slightly differently: this time creating an emerging symbol and reversing it.

 Evolution

I then moved away of emergence as a theme and turned my attention to transformation.

Thoughts
I think these sets don’t quite work on their own, save for the last one that offers more of a narrative about the process of moving from being ambulant to a wheelchair user. But even that would need a lot of adjustment to make it work. They need a context to work within or maybe these would be better as moving pictures…
