Title: “The Stage of Value”

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

For this project the artist chose to articulate value, 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: “Box of dimension

Materials: Inking brush pens (black, dark gray, and light gray) and book pages from Shakespeare’s Macbeth

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

Title: “Music Party DO-RE-MI

Materials: Inking brush pen (black) and book pages from Shakespeare’s Macbeth

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

Simultaneous Contrast

Stripes

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, “The 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.”

Next website is called, Color Vision & Art. This website explains many famous paintings that shows examples of simultaneous contrast. “Two colors, side by side, interact with one another and change our perception accordingly.” 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, “Simultaneous contrast is most intense when the two colors are complementary colors.”

Color Interaction Parings: Phase 2

Group 1 – Achromatic gray studies

Group 1 Chromatic Grays

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.

Took about 10 minutes.


Group 2 – Shifting value (with color)

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

Took about 25 minutes, because I had to experiment a lot 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.

Took about 10 minutes

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.

Took about 10 minutes.

Group 5 – Extra Credit

Group 5 - Extra CreditThis group was very difficult because I had to keep changing the colors so that I could make the middle squares look alike.

This took about 30 minutes

All took about an hour and half to create.

Understanding Tom Phillips’ 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, 2015
Exacto knife, Ink brush pen, folding, and used paper bag book.

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 “not fit”. 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.
