Tension of the Opposites

In last week's Pattern Design class, we explored aspects of our individual design with paper and scissors, using the concept of 'Notan'.Notan is a Japanese word for balancing light and dark or positive and negative space. For the exercise below, I tried to create a balanced tension such that I can look at the design and first see black as the foreground and then blink and see the white as the foreground, instead.

And then we moved into colour, using stamps we made of our designs on fabric.

This one is on a sheer and left the same image on the plastic below as it seeped through, so I made a monoprint, too.
