    Whatever its origins, for more than thirteen hundred years the ogival pattern has provided textile designers with both an anchor in tradition and a stage for innovation (Trilling, 2001).1

Dynamic Pattern is a digital animation that explores and illustrates the formation of the ogival repeat pattern network through the use of rotation, a repeat design method common to traditional block printing. It seeks to carry on the conversation that has evolved with successive printing processes into and beyond digital textile printing, exploring alternative media and technologies, and taking pattern beyond two dimensions.
