Flashcards in TOA1 Deck (22)
how users, client, community or even the designer assigned value to forms and spaces
Differences rely on the importance of the form and spaces due to
• Symbolic roles
Hierarchy is achieved by:
- Exceptional size
• Unique shape
• Strategic location
Element can be of significant it is the smallest or the biggest in size of similar shapes
• Contrast in shape
• End of line or axial organization
• Centerpiece of a symmetrical
• Central or radial organization
• Offset above, below, or in the
foreground of a composition
cut through or form a common edge for the pattern while grid of lines can form a neutral, unifying field for the patterns
serve as background and frame the elements
collect pattern of elements within the boundaries or organize them along the perimeter
is the movement characterized by the patterned recurrence of elements or motifs at regular or irregular interval
It is generally difficult to change the form of a point as it only possesses the most basic of visual element property, its position or location. If one changes its only property, it simply is transferred, and not transformed.
Form Transformation can happen by:
the element of contact between mass (solid) and space.
Spheres, cones, pyramids, cubes or solids taken collectively are very important primary forms. They serve as “_________” of the objects that we see around us.
refers to the change made by means of changing any of the figure’s dimensions (length, width, height, volume), while maintaining its characteristics that allow it to remain in its original family of forms. The example on the right is part of the cube/box classification.
may or may not result to the retention of the figure’s identity. A pyramid going through a subtractive transformation may end up as a diamond or a type of prismatic figure (prismatoid), bringing it into another family of figure classification.
is likely to change the group classification of the figure, and possibilities of resulting to a new form seem endless.
indicates a position in space has no length, width, depth
static, directionless, centralized
As element of form, a point serve as:
- Two ends of a line
- Intersection of two lines
- Meeting of lines at the corner of the plane or volume
- The center of the field
extending a point produce a line
A line is a continuous mark made by a pencil, brush, pen or other tool.
Lines can be thick or thin, straight or curved, jagged or smooth, light or heavy.
extending line and intersecting with two more lines become a plane. It has length and width shape, surface, orientation, position.
