Light and Shadow -Discovered Patterns

Whilst travelling around Marrakesh, I realised that patterns and shapes were being created by light and shadows, as well as there being patterns covering every surface and wall from mosaic and engraving. I found that the brightness of the sun created firm shapes and repetitions that really interested me, and the way these were made by something as natural as the way the light fell,and unpredictable, really brought inspired some ideas.

The images I took:

Whilst on the trip, I also created drawings, overlaying representations of objects and shapes around me but also the effect of light that created patterns on the walls and floor. I found Marrakesh to overwhelming in its vast amount of visual art and shapes, it was difficult to represent it in one images, therefore leading me to think about collage and overlapping shapes.
