Unintended Beauty

Alastair Philip Wiper’s new book features photos of symmetry and pattern found in industrial spaces. I find it very interesting how Wiper can manipulate composition to make us see industrial spaces as having beauty, challenging our ideas of factories being dull and monotonous. The patterns that he captures in the images are quite interesting as many of them involve a combination of both organic and geometric shapes which are built from simple shapes. There is also a lot of repetition in the images, which reminded me of the way we have been building more complex icons from basic shapes in class, and using them multiple times throughout the artwork to maintain consistency.
