A Simple Application of Dynamic Symmetry (Examples)
Below are several examples from the book The Art of Composition: A Simple Application of Dynamic Symmetry by Michel Jacobs. The lines in red demonstrate how the artist/illustrator is using the angles inherent to the chosen Dynamic Symmetry rectangle to create visual movement throughout the design. Additionally, also observe how the artist is using the vertical and horizontal divisions of the associated rectangle as well as moving down multiple tiers within their related designs. Even though Jacobs doesn't demonstrate this concept thoroughly in his book, if you do further analysis you will discover that this is most often the case. All of the images below are designed in a root 2 Dynamic Symmetry rectangle.
