One of the many benefits of designing using Dynamic Symmetry is that the individual root rectangles can be subdivided indefinitely into many smaller versions of the mother rectangle producing theme, variety, and harmony within your composition.
Additionally, all of the root rectangles can be divided by varying themes. For example, the root 2 rectangle can be divided on the theme of two or three. The Root 3 rectangle can be divided on the theme of three or four. The root 4 rectangle can be divided on the theme of four or five. And the root 5 rectangle can be divided on the theme of five or six.
To give an example, in the painting below, “Madonna of the Pilgrims,” you can see how Caravaggio is composing in a root 3 Dynamic Symmetry rectangle. If you continue to break down each root 3, you will find additional divisions on the theme of three. These repeated divisions create theme, variation, and a constant visual rhythm throughout the entire design.
