DYNAMIC PATTERNS: VISUALIZING LANDSCAPES IN A DIGITAL AGE. Karen M'Closkey and Keith VanDerSys. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. 192 pp. with 123 ills. (86 col.). 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9780415711326 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 175483. Publisher's description: Dynamic Patterns explores the role of patterns in designed landscapes. Patterns are inherently relational, and the search for and the creation of patterns are endemic to many scientific and artistic endeavors. Recent advances in optical tools, sensors, and computing have expanded our understanding of patterns as a link between natural and cultural realms. Looking beyond the surface manifestation of pattern, M'Closkey and VanDerSys delve into a multifaceted examination that explores new avenues for engagement with patterns using digital media. Examining the theoretical implications of pattern-making, they probe the potential of patterns to conjoin landscape's utilitarian and aesthetic functions. With full color throughout and over one hundred and twenty images, Dynamic Patterns utilizes work from a wide range of artists and designers to demonstrate how novel modes of visualization have facilitated new ways of seeing patterns and therefore of understanding and designing landscapes.
