The purpose of this project was to create a composition out of specific shapes. This composition was to include visual elements such as space, scale, size, distance, position, density, and interval. In addition to composition, the shapes were to overlap one another, an illusion to be created with paint.
Arranging the shapes into a composition and choosing colors for each shape were most challenging. For the composition, all the previously stated elements were to be taken into consideration in the process. Finding the right size of the shape, the right position, the right scale and the right amount of distance between shapes and the borders was difficult. It couldn’t be random because it also had to be aesthetically pleasing, however was not meant to look like a particular arrangement as an image. Choosing the colors was difficult as well because they couldn’t be too similar to the color of the overlapping shapes. The purpose was to mix the paint to make them appear as if they were overlapping; if you were to place an orange shape over a red shape, for example, the overlap would not be so evident.
