## Color Interaction Parings: Phase 2

Group 1: For this study, I learned how to use different shades of grays to change the color of the middle square. The squares in the middle are the same color but the surrounding color makes it appear as though it’s a different color. It took 20 minutes to complete.

Group 2: For this study, I learned how to keep the color of the larger squares but change the value. The squares in the middle are the same color but with the change in value within the surrounding color it changes the appearance of the square in the middle. It took 20 minutes to complete.

Group 3: For this study, I learned how to make different colors have the same value. The squares in the middle are the same color but the surrounding color make the little squares appear as if they have the same hue as the surrounding color. It took 35 minutes to complete.

Group 4: For this study, I learned how to change the appearance of the middle squares with different hues and different values. It took 35 minutes to complete.

## Project #5: Color Interaction Parings: Phase 2

Group 1 â€“ Achromatic gray studies

In group one, I think its the most easy part of this phase. All I’m doing is pick two different value colors to make center color look like they have different value, in fact, they have exactly same value.

Time took 10 minutes.

Group 2 â€“ Shifting value (with color)

Group two is also kind of easy. I picked a color and change the value of the color to support the center color look different in value.

Time took 10 minutes.

Group 3 â€“ Shifting hue, but not value

In group three, it did challenge me a little. I have to find two different color and make them have same value, and they have to support the center color look like they have different value.

Time took 20 minutes.

Group 4 â€“ Shifting hue and value

Group four is very similar to group three, the only different part is I can change the value of the two color.

Time took 10 minutes.

Group 5 â€“ Extra Credit

Group five is similar to group four, however group four end up with center color looks like has different value, and group five is to change the value of center color to make them look like exactly same, in fact the value are different.

Time took 20 minutes.

## Color Interaction Pairings: Phase 2

According to this project, I learned different compositions will give us different visual effect. Warm back layer gives an effect of pumping out the composition that over it. Cool back layer opposites that, it gives an effect of inward zooming, like a 3D tunnel. Also when you put the same color on both cool and warm back layers, you will see two colors that exactly same will became two different colors, which called simultaneous contrast, an interesting effect tricks your eyes. I think the most painful part is when you are up on group 4 and extra credit part, because you have already stared on compositions withÂ simultaneous contrast for long time, so the illusionÂ may causedÂ headache and eyes damage. It decreased my concentrations a lot, therefore this part is the best part to challenge yourself as a designer.

I spend around 5-10 minutes on each pairs

## Silhouette

Noun

the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, especially in dim light.

I encountered this work while reading the guidelines for project #5 for COMD1100 “The personal icon should be a simpleÂ silhouette”

I now know aÂ Silhouette is a blackÂ shape/figureÂ outline of someone or something.

[Glossary Entry 7]

## Simultaneous Contrast

Noun

the tendency of a color to induce its opposite in hue, value and intensity upon an adjacent color and be mutually affected in return

Source – Merriam Dictionary

I encountered this word while reading the guide lines for project # 5 in COMD1100.

I now understand thatÂ Simultaneous Contrast means opposite in color and value.

## Exhibit Catalogue Entry

This exhibit is presented by Jaichan Kirty. Jaichan Kirty was born and raised in Guyana, then moved to New York where he now lives and studies. Gathering inspiration from Tom Phillipsâ€™s altered text,Â A Humument, Kirty curate a project that integrates both words and visuals. Like Phillips, Kirty found an inexpensive used book entitled Portrait of Ivan. The Portrait of Ivan is about a young boy coming of age while he is also discovering himself. Kirty transformed this book into new artistic creations both in appearance, using ink, paint, pencil, cut-outs, and folding. Kirty also created a new title and theme for Portrait of Ivan. He had many ideas into the new title but finally decided on one, which is Portrait Van. The idea behind this new title came from the new juxtaposition theme for Portrait of Ivan, which is mysterious and creepy. This is a juxtaposition of Portrait of Ivan because a boy be coming of age is supposed to be nice and pleasant. The opposite of that is mysterious and creepy. In order for Kirty to create these compositions and start changing Portrait of Ivan into Portrait Van, Kirty blocked out a huge amount of the pages and selected words and phrases to emphasize. He then created images using those words and phrases he wanted to emphasize in that page of the book. The first piece of this exhibit is called â€śSo thatâ€™s what it looks likeâ€ť. Kirty has created a new window (a new view) into this book by using over-lapping to create an illusion of a boy, (Ivan) looking through a new page by cutting a square on the next page in the book. Kirty uses an X-Acto knife to carefully cut this square out of the page. Also Kirty uses sharpie markers to cover up a huge amount of the pages leaving out a few words that create its own new story. These words creates a whole new meaning of this page. â€śSo thatâ€™s what it looks likeâ€ť. The second piece is called â€śinside the houseâ€ť. Kirty blocked out a huge amount of the page and selected words and phrases to emphasize. â€śOpening her eyesâ€ť and â€śPhotograph of the house when itâ€™s winterâ€ť, which he used to create images. The first image is an eye-opening and then he uses white computer paper to cut out the shape of a house to emphasize the â€śPhotography of the house when itâ€™s winterâ€ť. Kirty then used the cut out of the house and glued it on the previous page and used sharpie to create what it seems to be the inside of the house. The third and last piece of this exhibit is called â€śBlue Printâ€ť. â€śBlueprintâ€ť was created when Kirty painted overÂ a picture with saturated primary colors.Â KirtyÂ painted a blue box and inside that box is a print of a foot-step, hence the title Blue Print. After paintingÂ overÂ the picture,Â KirtyÂ then closed the book allowing the paint to print over on the other page creating a paint splatter effect. The resulting work merges image and text for each new project or concept in both courses he was taking COMD 1100 and English 1101.

Route of Dreams

X-Acto knife,Â black bristol, and glue

To represent Of Mice and Men’s themes of dreams and loneliness, Yang used an X-Acto knife to cut out shapes of a dark cloud, lightning, and a bird from black bristol, then glued them on the page to create theÂ obviousÂ composition. The dark cloud and the lightning stand forÂ theÂ obstacles of our dreams, and the bird is used to representÂ loneliness.

Broken

No. 6H pencil andÂ black big brush

To represent Of Mice and Men’s theme of sacrifice,Â Yang used a No. 6H pencil and a black big brush to create theÂ concept of pattern. Yang used the No.6H pencil to draw the shape of the pattern, then filled it with the black big brush. Â TheÂ irregular lines staggered together makes it look like a broken mirror, represent the idea ofÂ sacrifice.

Freedom

No. 6H pencil andÂ black big brush

In Freedom, Yang used a No. 6H pencil and a black big brush to create theÂ concept ofÂ overlap. Yang first used the No.6H pencil to draw the outline, then filled it with the black big brush. In this page, you only see part of the heart. And the heart isÂ separating in birds shape. Presenting the idea of freedom.
