‘Listen’ by Lilly Blue

Patterns and Pathways: abstracting the everyday – an open-ended and continuous quest to notice and see things differently.

 Patterns and Pathways is about looking at a silver web from an unexpected angle, collecting leaves in a row so that they become a strange kind of sentence, travelling on the cracks in the pavement and noticing the repeated triangles in a wire fence.

repetition, symbols, sequences, music, maths, mantras, poetry, codes, choreography, arteries, accumulation, and aerial views.

BIG Ideas: Paint a page of tiny lines / photograph patterns in nature / stitch little red pathways on found fabric / invent a code / draw thousands of tiny circles on a poster / compose a Haiku / create a matrix of secret tunnels / design wrapping paper by repeating your favourite object / record the rhythm of your walking feet /make marks with chalk for every second you have to wait for something / look through a microscope and draw what you see / make a maze with your eyes closed / choreograph a dance with only six moves / write instructions for how to get lost.
Definitions
Pattern: 
a combination of qualities, acts, tendencies, etc., forming a consistent or characteristic arrangement; the definition for pattern is a model or original used as an archetype.
Pathway: a route to or way of access to; way of reaching or achieving something.
