How to think/feel patterned?

The pattern is a whole, consisting of various, individual parts. The individual part is the basis for the whole and doesn't dissolve in it. The pattern works by repetition and is not reproducible. Important are methods such as compounding, shifting, overlapping and grouping. The pattern has a particular relation to the surface that carries it. We believe that working surfaces with the methods of patterns is political. We believe that surfaces should be carrier, that one could negotiate, address and challenge on them. The patterns are hereby investigations of surfaces and expand into those as well as into consciousness. Questions about form and surface, chronological elongation, foreground and background which can dissolve into each other are part of our work. The pattern is the illustration of social processes. Various individual parts form a structure, in which every form influences the neighbor ones' and therefore the whole.
The pattern is a way of organizing, as well as the collective. Also in this case, the individual constitutes the basis for the whole structure. Therefore, we want to make the overlapping in our individual, artistic work a bigger project, by collectively working on phenomenons and methods of patterns. The investigation and the application of pattern is also and investigation and application of ways of collective work.How to think patterned?

The patterned collective cooperates in different forms: The pattern is a metaphor for collective and solidary work here as well. The individual never dissolves completely in the collective. We cooperate with other structures. The whole is more than the total amount of its parts. We want to make visible the conditions (the subsoil) of our work as well as its representative forms.
