Same color has different appearance of value on the top of different backgrounds. They gave us a illusion of when it on the top of a bright layer, it looks it has a lower value. But when it on the top of a darker layer, it looks it has a higher value. ThisÂ phenomenon is called simultaneous contrast. Two images above are the examples of it. Do you see the difference between the colors?

## Simultaneous Contrast

Â

From what I’ve observed, these two images show interesting simultaneous contrast. In the first image, the lines are the same color but with the surrounding gray and yellow makes the lines appear as the colors are switched. The lines in the yellow box are gray while the lines in the gray box are yellow. In the second image, the surrounding colors are like in the first image( in a that they are different colors from one another). But the red hand in the black box appears to be lighter while the red hand in the blue box looks darker.

Jingyi Jiao

Title:Â “The Stage of Value”

Materials: Inking brush pens (black, dark gray, and light gray) and book pages fromÂ Shakespeare’sÂ Macbeth.

For this project the artist chose to articulateÂ value,Â which is the lightness and darkness of a color. Using inking brush pens to block out specific words, Jiao chose the word “stage” to incorporate the fact that Macbeth is a famous play itself. Using the skill of placement, the page shows value from the darkest blacks to no color at all.

Title:Â “Box of dimension

Materials: Inking brush pens (black, dark gray, and light gray) and book pages fromÂ Shakespeare’sÂ Macbeth.Â

InÂ Box of dimension, Jiao shows technique of overlap. Using inking brush pens to color boxesÂ intoÂ different values, the transparent gray colors merged up, and becomes overlapped. By overlapping the boxes with different ranges of valueÂ together, it tricks your eyes and gives aÂ 3D feeling.

Title:Â “MusicÂ Party DO-RE-MI

Materials: Inking brush pen (black) and book pages fromÂ Shakespeare’sÂ Macbeth.Â

InÂ Music Party Do-Re-Mi, it shows Jiao’s learning of rhythmic pattern that she connects with her interestÂ in music.Â This composition shows the two different rhythms of staccato and legato. Staccato represents sharp patterns while legato represents round patterns.Â Jiao combines them up by usingÂ the creativity toÂ turn music into art.

## Simultaneous Contrast

This website is called, Color Cube. It shows the example of simultaneous contrast where it has a variety of affects on our sights. When different backgrounds or patterns are framed by the identical colors, it appears to shift. The example follows this instructions, â€śThe diagrams below feature two sets of identical green squares within a striping pattern. Do the colors on each side of the stripes appear different? In each case, the squares on the left side appear darker and the right side appears lighter. View the images from the side of your monitor to exaggerate this effect.â€ť

Next website is called, Color Vision & Art. This website explains many famous paintings that shows examples of simultaneous contrast. â€śTwo colors, side by side, interact with one another and change our perception accordingly.â€ť This quote also explains very well about our perception of our sights. As we read further down, it explains each art that is posted online. Different art has different type of contrasts that the artist shows the viewer, which it explains how, â€śSimultaneous contrast is most intense when the two colors are complementary colors.â€ť

## Color Interaction Parings: Phase 2

Group 1 – Achromatic gray studies

What I learned on this group is, it was easy to see a difference because I was only working with grays. There wasn’t a lot of options to choose.

Group 2 – Shifting value (with color)

This group was a little tricky to create because of the valueÂ options. But with many tries, this is what I came up with.

Took about 25 minutes, becauseÂ I had to experiment a lotÂ to get what i was looking for.

Group 3 – Shifting hue, but not value

This group was easy to create, I first chose a color and the chose another another hue by sliding the hue bar up and down util I see a difference in the middle square.

Group 4 – Shifting hue and value

This group was also easy to create, I first chose a color and the chose another hue by sliding the hue bar up and down and then I changed the value until I see a difference in the middle square.

Group 5 – Extra Credit

This group was very difficult because I had to keep changing the colors so that I could make the middle squaresÂ look alike.

All took about an hour and half to create.Â

Understanding Tom Phillipsâ€™ concept behind his creative art work, Morishima combined different skills she learned from her Graphic design principle and English class to create a humument book. She changed the theme of the book, Wishes to a crazy wonderland concept to show completely different side of wonderland, where She used patterns to represent the chandelier and doors that connects to the theme.

Book of Wonder was created when Morishima used a Exacto knife to cut open a block of text at the bottom of the page and glued only in the middle. Creating a piece of story that continues from Gate to Wonder, which follows the theme of Wonderland. Falling into the rabbit hole, it leads the reader to go though the door to read a little book that Morishima created.

## Quirk

noun

An unusual habit or way of behaving

Something strange that happens by chance

Source: Merriam-Webster

I encountered this word quirk, from our instruction for the project #5. I did not understand what it meant, so decided to search it up on Merriam-Webster. After reading the definition and reread the sentence where I got it from, I still quite did not understand. Because the meaning and the way it was used was â€śnot fitâ€ť. I hope the professor explains it after maybe if she read this post, however I am guessing that it will not be any time soon.
