Now, without further ado, here is the challenge I have set for you:
Interpret the Design Principle "Rhythm" in any way which moves you.
Here is the definition of rhythm to help jumpstart your creative juices:
a. the arrangement of the relative durations of and accents onthe notes of a melody, usually laid out into regular groups (bars ) of beats, the first beat of each bar carrying the stress
b. any specific arrangement of such groupings; time: quadruplerhythm
a. the arrangement of words into a more or less regularsequence of stressed and unstressed or long and short syllables
b. any specific such arrangement; metre
(in painting, sculpture, architecture, etc) a harmonioussequence or pattern of masses alternating with voids, of lightalternating with shade, of alternating colours, etc
any sequence of regularly recurring functions or events, such asthe regular recurrence of certain physiological functions of thebody, as the cardiac rhythm of the heartbeat
[C16: from Latin rhythmus , from Greek rhuthmos ; related torhein to flow]

So let your imagination run rhythmically wild! You can interpret the challenge by creating a piece of jewellery (pardon my Canadian spelling), a piece of wall art, or something functional, it's totally up to you. As always, everyone, no matter what your skill level or area of expertise, is encouraged to take part. I've got rhythm. Let's see just how many of you do, too!
Deadline for adding photos of your entry to our Flickr pool is midnight July 1st. Remember to tag your photos with "June Challenge", so we don't miss seeing and voting on any of your remarkable creations.
