Wallpaper Pattern

A wallpaper pattern designed specifically for the lobby of Parsons The New School for Design at 2 West 13th Street inspired by the narcissus flower study and my examination of the gerbera daisy's layers. I appropriated Caravaggio'a "Narcissus" painting, cropped it at the point in which the figure's hands meet the water, and mirrored the image. Multiplying this created the illusion of a flower. Wanting to exaggerate this trompe l'oeil, I found the silhouette of the narcissus flower within Caravaggio's painting and darkened it. Like pixels to a digital image, this rendered the pattern in a way that changes and becomes a series of multiple patterns as one approaches the lobby from 5th Avenue and 13th street.
