What can we learn without cultural context?

zae patterns

As part of an exploration into the idea of globalism and equal exchange of ideas from different parts of the world, I've researched Iranian/Persian art traditions, specifically pattern making. I've created my own set of patterns based on their mathematical rules and traditional motifs, but with non-traditional and modern color palettes. Presented is an Arabic calligraphy set and pamphlet detailing the history of Arabic calligraphy so that the knowledge I've gained from my research can be passed on.
