RE: [art_education] radial symmetry questions - Thanks to everyone
Thanks. I, too, prefer the flipped kaleidoscopic designs. They are much more interesting.
Thanks to all who responded.

If the circle is evenly divided and you flip the design from side "A" to side "B" as you go around the circle you'll end up with a kaleidoscopic design or pattern. I find that six repetitions gives very interesting groupings because the pattern gets triangulated in the process.

- That is called reflection. It is like the reflected symmetry that is see when you look in a kaleidoscope.If you would like to take a look at some of my student work using radial symmetry in the creation of mandala designs I have included my web page at my school.Diane Rowen Garmire
