Pattern is deeply embedded in everything we do. Pattern defines and regulates how we speak, think, and interact with our natural and manufactured environments. The exhibition Sixfold Symmetry: Pattern in Art and Science was created in collaboration with nine Skidmore College faculty members who worked together to explore how and why humans discern, design, and desire pattern across all areas of our lives. This publication was produced in conjunction with the exhibition and features new scholarship by Skidmore College faculty and contributions by students.
