Patterns are ever-present elements in our daily lives, and as such, they can easily be taken for granted. Ornate wallpapers that beg you to question the taste of whomever put them up and age-old adages about horizontal stripes making you look chubbier permeate our everyday perceptions. Fashion designers bring their work to life with all manner of patterns, ranging from minimalistic and abstract motifs to delicately hand-painted flowers. But despite their ubiquity, patterns by themselves seem always to remain at the edge of our consciousness, begging the question of what their place really is, and what importance they might carry—in art, as well as popular culture.
