Summary: This paper uses a theoretical backdrop of enactivism and knowledge objectification to explore the role of rhythm in the generalisation of pictorial patterns. Through an analysis of two vignettes, rhythm is shown not only to be an indicator of the conscious or unconscious perception of structure, but it is also shown that rhythm can be an artefact born out of specific counting processes, an artefact which in turn can lead to structural awareness.
