Here’s the track I will be using for my moving sound book. I created this track using garageband on my iPhone.
In part 3, I used the following square to create a inked pattern:
The compositon below is the inked patten of the image above. My impression of this pattern is that it resembles ethnic tribal design pattern used on garments and as decoration.
In the composition below, the negative and postive space has been switched. Pencil was used instead of ink to complete this image.
For part 2 of the project, I chose the following compositions to illustrate figure and ground relationship. I approached this project with the intent to make organic shapes using cutouts from black paper. After doing this part of the project and reviewing the text again, I gained a better understanding of how negative and postive space works together in a composition. A reverse of this project was done in pencil after the four comps were completed. The reverse is interesting and helps to build more insight regarding figure and ground relationship.
Here are the files used in the first part of the project one of exploring figure and ground relationship using letters in illustrator. A reverse was done in pencil for each of the original compositions. The reversals give the compositions a new look and helps to show the impact of experimenting with negative and positive space.
