Our minds are hard-wired to seek out pattern to help us interpret the world and predict the outcomes of uncertain situations. But patterns whose structure is obvious resolve too quickly to hold our attention. When confronted by complex configurations that suggest, but don’t immediately reveal, their underlying architecture, our neural pathways come alive with questions. I explore this intriguing territory by drawing from the irregular geometry of cultivated fields, patched boro textiles, Korean bojagi cloth, the cracked ice motif of traditional Chinese woodwork, the mysteriously compelling abstract geometric forms of cemetery maps, and the natural structure of foams whose mesmerizing hybrids of order and randomness occur throughout the universe at every scale from the growth of sea sponges to the clustering of galaxies.
