These images were assembled by selecting and copying pieces of digital photographs, then reflecting and transforming the pieces to arrange them into a symmetrical repeat. A limited number of shapes can be combined in a way that is not obviously disjointed. When the pieces are forced into symmetry, the objects at the edges come together and a new pattern emerges. For me these emergent patterns are surprising and mysterious, and seem only distantly related to the photographs they were made from.
