High Key and Low Key

IMG_0752 IMG_0755I decided to take two photos in my home.  The first is of a plant in my living room.  The second is of a stool in the corner of my dining room.  I chose to let the plant represent a high key picture, as there is a lot of light in the picture.  The stool represents a low key picture as it sits in the dark corner of a room.

I placed the plant in a well lit area to give a joyous mood, as opposed to it being in a dark area, where it would feel depressing.  I felt that it also signified a sense of growth, as naturally, plants need light to grow.  The stool in the corner gives a feeling of loneliness and neglect.  It’s there in the dark, with nobody to sit on it.

Aural Topography: Staccato and Legato

Photo on 2013-09-30 at 06.41I believe I did a decent job grasping the concept of this assignment.  I feel like all of the different boxes connect the images inside of each other, as it was my goal to make the sounds seem like they’re fluctuating.  This assignment helped me to clearly understand stocato and logato, and what they might sound like.

A View From My Window

The view from my living room window consists of buildings, trees, roads and cars.  As a result, I see many straight and curved lines.  Squares, circles, rectangles, and even triangles are within my view.

The giant tree in front combines both straight lines and curved.  The cars contain both straight and curved lines as well, and have rectangular shapes.  The wheels serve as the circles I see.  Roads appear at an angle which look like triangles.  The buildings hold straight lines and are shaped like squares, rectangles, cubes, and rectangular prisms, depending on the angle you look at it at.
