Line Systems | Illusion of Space

Last week we critiqued Project 3 and saw we can abstract from Subject Matter by focusing on the Principle of Organization Unity.

This week we will work on Project 4 continuing to abstract a design's Degree of Representation by exploring the Elements of Design Line characteristics to convey Content, and by paying attention to the Principle of Organization Emphasis and Focal Point.

Homework for Class 6

After reading Design Basics: Rhythm chapter, and researching what Movement in design is, search the Internet for an artwork that clearly has a strong sense of Movement. Post the image here and write how rhythm and movement in the artwork were accomplished.

Here are some possibilities:

. Changes in darkness or lightness.
. Similar shapes connected with each other.
. Overlapping elements.
. Repetition of elements.
