Project 1: Line




Project 2: Black & White Shape Compositions

Project 2: these designs are non-representational, made following the notān style. The shapes are predominantly geometric, with a healthy dose of organic shapes also included. The nature of the project lends itself to reflecting on figure/ground reversal, as the positive space in black is reflected equally in the negative space, or ground, in white. The designs exemplify asymmetry, one-point symmetry, and radial symmetry. Balance is attempted in all three designs, establishing an even distribution of the figures and the ‘weight’ of the components. I feel as though I was successful in the objectives of the project, though I had issues cleaning up guidelines and some inconsistencies in the pieces cut and repasted. I hope that the methods I used and attempts I made to clean up my work come close to presenting a professional design work.
