This is a rework of a shape matrix of even-petaled flowers that shows the driving style of the left hand (columns) paired with a driving style of the right hand (rows).
We get Basic Shapes- Both hands performing the same driving style with the prop.
Hybrid Shapes- Each hand is performing a different driving style.
Monorythmic- Props are doing the same number of rotations (moving at the same speed).
Polyrhythmic props- Props are doing a different number of rotations (moving at a different speed).
Link to most of these driving styles shown piece-by-piece:
