1. What is role of geometry in design and art?

2. How do patterns influence design? Can a design be simply patterns or then we will call it art?

3. I believe Patterns intrigue you. What do you see when you see a pattern? Are you looking for patterns?

4. What happens when the pattern itself is anarchic?

5. Is pattern and routine same at a philosophical level? How come we are so inclined towards breaking the pattern / monotony?
