Expanded Squares, Altered Squares

Lately I have been returning to my textile design roots. I have been playing with altered squares. You take a black paper square, divide it (with a pencil) into 4 equal parts, and cut out shapes. Then you flip the cutout negative space out of the black section and glue it all on white paper so there are mirror images of the cutout.

The black and white image is my square. The turquoise one is the image reduced and stepped and repeated in photoshop. I flipped the second row 180 degrees.
