Basic Dynamic Symmetry Armatures

 Scroll down for construction steps for the basic dynamic symmetry.

In ascending order of aspect ratio:

Construction Example:

Step 1: main diagonals and one reciprocal (perpendicular to the 'baroque' diagonal)

Step 2: main diagonals and all 4 reciprocals. Note the red x indicating a possible focal point.

Final Step: horizontals and verticals through the intersections of the diagonals and their reciprocals.

Whirling Squares Spiral:

We superimpose the whirling squares' spiral onto the Dynamic Symmetry Armatures for PHI* rectangles, as indicated in the following diagram:

*or near-PHI such as 10x16, 15x25, 5x8, 8x13
