Lost in Execution: Tracks and Spirals

I found myself thinking about lines as paths, and paths are seen by the tracks left by people following them, whose crossing identify points of convergence. Spirals are a specific form of convergence, a point of attraction you are drawn towards while seeming to be heading elsewhere.

SpiralPerceptions: Overlaying the patterns from the previous print with some additional line work to give emphasis to the focal point at the centre of the spiral tracks. The vertical and horizontal lines suggest incidental tracks not reaching the central point. Is there a tension between the two types of track? A path less chosen?

SpiralPerceptions2ndRotation00: I looked for a pattern; a symbol within the circle with movement into the centre. I chose a triangular shape to reflect this. I kept the pattern and drew it in rotation around the central point, responding to and overlaying the circle.

SpiralPerceptions01: Heightens the spiral by taking the symbol from the previous image and creating multiple versions of the symbol in rotation.

SpiralPerceptions2ndRotation: I kept the spiral rotation and removed the original background so that only the symbols created in a spiral form remain.
