Abstract: ‘Dialogue’ investigates possible Islamic concepts behind geometric patterns that are often seen as ornamental and decorative. The project is built on visual interpretations based on the Principles of Islam on the beauty of creation that stems on Expansion and Continuity. It explores the construction of the patterns based on meanings of numbers and geometry and the possibilities it brings with the over theme of Multiplicity in Unity. Dialogue offers a contemporary approach to the traditional Islamic patterns and hopes to encourage a visual conversation with the audience.isual conversation with the audience. The research was spurred by the meanings of geometry by Keith Critchlow on the Circle (1), the Square (4), the Pentagon (5) and the hexagon (6). During the research, I’ve managed to visualise the expansion and continuation of the geometry that is inspired by beauty of Creation as depicted by Islam, from a common source--- the Origin, also metaphorically represented by the circle.
