Color harmony: Phase 3

The K-Files

Hours spent- 2

The picture that I based my book cover off of was a painting of a sunset with trees. I can’t really draw so I mad a abstract like cover that represents all colors that I used to make the color proportions.



Definition- persistently avoid, ignore, or reject (someone or something) through antipathy or caution.

I found this word In the text of  “Here Poverty and Privilege are Neighbors; Income Gaps are a Source of Resentment and guilt” by Janny Scott where  it talks about how the wealthy people were “shunned” as they were being pushed into by neighbors.





Definition- “essentially different in kind; not allowing comparison.”

“here, poverty and privilege are neighbors, income gaps are a source of resentment and guilt” where it states “A defining characteristic New York city its is economic diversity, The juxtaposition of people of disparate circumstances in limited spaces.”



•a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer.

I encountered this word in the final that we took, the article “when your boss is a algorithm” where it mainly talks about what Uber drivers have to go through because there boss is a system on a phone.


Gig Economy

Gig economy (adj.)

Merriam Webster: a sector of work mainly dedicated to temporary or freelance work.

Source: “When Your Boss is an Algorithm”. “I have learned that drivers at ride-hailing companies may have the freedom and flexibility of gig economy work, but they are still at the mercy of a boss, an algorithmic boss”

From the definition, I can tell that gig economy could mean any freelance jobs like artists or graphic designers



•the study of the development, structure, and functioning of human society.

I found this word in the text of “A professor of sociology at queens college” where it says,“Here, poverty and privilege are neighbors; income gaps are a source of resentment and guilt”.


Idealize (v.)

Merriam Webster: to form ideals.

Source: The Senses eBook “Exhibits following universal design principles can facilitate a powerful feeling of inspiration, awe, wonder, and excitement for all visitors, not just those who meet an idealized persona.

Looking at images, I can see that idealize means something that someone would want to be back isn’t




•make (someone) a priest or minister; confer holy orders on

•order or decree (something) officially.

The word ordained is used a lot for sayings like “equal punishment was ordained for the two crimes”. The word also has a definition that supports the previous definition which is to make someone priest or minister.


Facilitate (v.)

Merriam Webster definition: to make easier

Source: The Senses eBook ”Inclusive design facilitates this social inclusion and interaction…”

Using images I can see visual representations of what the word means.



Benevolent (adj.)

Definition: marked by or disposed to doing good ( Merriam Webster)

Source: “When Your Boss is an Algorithm.” First sentence of paragraph 4, “Data and Algorithms are presented as objective, neutral, even benevolent.”

While looking at images of benevolent, I saw a lot of images of people being kind and helping out someone else
