360° art + fashion

My weekend was full of circles. First, it was Bridget Riley’s mural at the National Gallery (if you’re in London, please make sure you stop in to see this exhibition. It’s free and mind blowing and won’t take more than 10 minutes out of your day). I’ve tried to recreate her random circles here, but I can’t do it justice. Like a lot of modern art, it looks so easy until you try it yourself, but I hope you get the drift.

Fashion is having a little circle moment too with polka-dots and other bits and pieces of the round and spherical variety making a come back. Here’s a few of my favourites.

Jean Yu polka-dot silk chiffon shorts and camisole, Marni polka-dot leather wallet, Marc Jacobs appliquéd honeycomb-mesh cotton top, Emily and Fin navy polka-dot Lucy dress, and a coral polka-dot scarf from TopShop.

And just to round off, here’s a photo of a light installation I found near the Barbican on Sunday evening. Too pretty for words.

    Ooh, I loved the Bridget Riley exhibition too. I spent ages in front of that circles mural looking for a pattern, and although there isn’t one, I loved the way it isn’t quite as random as it seems…

    In your “random circles” remake you missed an important point.

    The center of the circles are on a fix rectangular grid.
    The radii of the circles are equal (that you understood).

    What makes you mind blow is that you (without realizing) capture the rectangulae grid of the circles (or center of circles) and at the same time realize that there are some circles missing….

    It is not a total mess but somehow…..

    Maybe you fix you image :-)
