The Broken Tail on a Lizard: The ideas of repetition and algorithm have inspired me in my work to develop this system ​
I have created a bridge with a system of broken proportions. The ideas of repetition and algorithm have inspired me in my work to develop a system. My system is based on the divine proportion and its parts.
The metaphor I use is the broken tail on a lizard, that from the point of where it brakes takes another shape and creates a new structure, overlapping and connecting the old to the new. I call this ”the nature’s broken proportions”. By that I mean, when the symmetry in the creation in the new tail is broken or reduced, it no longer is a continuation of the lizard’s body in that time and space, but an individually separated continuity with its own symmetry. It exist in parallel and as an extension of its past. The system I have created has helped me to define the boundaries and provided a clear structure of my design.
