Radial Symmetry 2

My second take on radial symmetric art (the condition of having similar parts arranged around a central canvas).  The main goal of this project was to take a “slice” of the circle and rotate it around six pieces to form a intertwining design.  It was really a matter of drawing random lines in hopes of producing a decent design.  After it was all drawn out, I began to take further interest in figuring out how to take it from a jumbled mess to a clean cut piece.

I decided upon using various shades of gray to create an interesting and eye catching piece. The final product came out very well and I’m satisfied with it. Unfortunately the file size is too big to display it always rotating so you’ll just have to admire it stationary.

A bit of radial symmetric art featuring a blade/petal like design.  For those of you who do not know what radial symmetry is: It is the condition of having similar parts arranged around a central canvas. As you can see in the design there is the center origin and four identical sections. When rotated everything looks the same at all angles.

This was quite fun to make and I will be producing this on a larger scale in class. Probably in color too. Try not to get to mezmerized by the animation although its quite fun to watch.
