3.0 Altered sequence

sequence-alt-valueCreating an Altered Sequence. Now let’s explore an additional form of a rhythm; one where a sequence starts to alternate in a variety of modes.

The varied “pulse” within the each of the two thumbnail sequence of circles has wide reaching, interesting consequences. What if just a few alterations are involved? Or just one? Black, white and gray are cool, but also think about how this can apply in the use of color; different proportions such as large vs. small (and in-between), heavy vs. light, strong vs. weak; varying textures, alternating spacings, etc. How many unique applications can you come up with?

Repeating and varying visual elements creates rhythm. The possibilities are quite limitless.

It’s your turn! Create your own version of an altered sequence through the medium of your choosing: photography, painting, drawing, digital tools, mixed media, etc. Check the Pinterest board on Rhythm and find even more examples.

Below are examples of altered sequences. Click through each image to find relevant Pinterest details.

When you’re done, post your exercises to Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram.
