Symmetrical thoughts

Thinking about symmetry, asymmetry, dissymmetry, antisymmetry...

Researching, I find out that we assume symmetry is natural,
yet perfect symmetry doesn't really exist anywhere in the world.
A freckle on a face is proving dissymmetry!

Symmetry creates harmony and stability in images and objects,
because redundancy establishes predictability, we quickly accept
what we see as belonging to our universe of familiar objects.
Interest is established by breaking symmetry in subtle ways,
which requires more attention by the viewer.

This is part of on ongoing project.
To be continued...
