Because rhythm and repetition are so essential to my project, before moving on to the translation step of my work, I manipulated the first line in the Cooling in a Garden of the Torrid Zone to demonstrate Klee’s own “principle of repetition.” Using an actual work of his and by investing the time to preserve almost all stylistic elements of the original in my versions of the line, I was able to discover the importance of intent in art making. Although visually my lines highly resembled Klee’s and the structure followed that proposed by Klee himself, (1 unit repetition, 2 unit repetition, 1+2 unit repetition seen below) because the arrangement I produced was of my own design, they felt void in comparison to the work from which they stem.
