Symmetry is a precise form of balance. It typically involves a center axis, whether actual or implied. The left half looks like the right half; upper half like the lower half and so on. Think mirror-like. Multiple layers of symmetrical items may actually begin to form their own coordinated sort of carefully crafted rhythms, potentially making compositions far more dynamic and interesting.
It’s your turn! Create your own version of an altered–progressive sequence through the vehicle of your choosing: photography, painting, drawing, digital tools, mixed media, etc.
