Memento (Nirvana), 2008. Cyanotype, 51 1/2 x 97 3/4 inches (130.8 x 248.3 cm) . Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York,Purchased with funds contributed by the International Director's Council 2009.57. © 2008 Christian Marclay

The artist follow the rule of "third" and odd, so it seems more natural and interesting. He uses lines and blue color to create this painting.  The whole painting are composed by lines, but some lines are difference, so I recognize that it is unity & variety .It also can be repetition and rhythm because it repeat usually blue color and lines. It is approximate symmetry because the lines of difference sides are not same exactly. when I first saw this painting, my eyes were attracted by space which was in the middle of art. In my own opinion, the lines from both of sides probably emphasis the space, so the space would be focal point.
