9.0 Asymmetrical, altered sequence: 2 elements

rhythm-of-two-systems,asymmetryAsymmetry is all about achieving a felt sense of balance. Asymmetric arrangements are chaotic, random and rhythmical. The goal is to create a felt state of balance where mismatching halves in a composition feel equal in weight with each other.

(To get a better idea as to how separate rhythms can integrate, review the definition of Unity, the pinterest board overview of Unity, or the video on Unity.)

It’s your turn! Create your own version of an asymmetrical altered sequence of 2 elements 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 asymmetrical altered sequences. Click through each image to find relevant Pinterest details.

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