Abstract: 200-400 words
The 20th century saw a transition from the analogue way of life to the digital. Two sets of binary patterns emerged: ‘grid’ ‘loop’ and ‘representation’ ‘abstraction’. The surface and structure of art and fashion has revealed dynamic patterns relevant to cognate disciplines concerned with patterns of thinking, imaging and coding. Therefore, is a vocabulary of pattern emerging between disciplines? Why do ‘grid’, ‘loop’, ‘representation’ and ‘abstraction’ emerge repeatedly across a wide set of disciplines: from fashion and art to brain science and pattern mapping? Is there a shift from product to process occurring in these distinct fields?
