A new theme that inspires me lately is the world of forms, patterns, and textures. Such as they manifest themselves around us, in nature as well as in culture, on a widely diverse scale and in entirely different materials and settings, while displaying surprising similarities from one to the other. Round forms and others curved or sinuous; spirals, radials, lines, crosses, polygons, networks, branching etc. Once watchful for it you will become aware of them in nearly every object or scene you rest your eye on.

Alertness for forms and patterns is as old as life on earth and nothing less than a prerequisite for survival of plants (yes, indeed!) animals and men in nature. Identifying and naming forms and patterns advanced as language, writing and analytical perception expanded. The targeted study of it, the geometrical science, had its roots among the ancient Greek philosophers: Plato, Aristoteles and Pythagoras. With time, notably from the early 20th century onwards, the study and classification in this domain became increasingly exhaustive and academic.

My focus in this project is rather on the imagery and the aesthetics than on theoretical aspects.
