PROJECT 3.1 (A)

ILLUSION OF SPACE – STRING DRAWINGS

  1. Explore the space around you- look for striking examples of spacial perspective.  You may take new images within the art building and/or use photos that you already have that suggest a sense of space. Note: you should be on the look out for one example of each illusion of space listed below.
  2. Next, using string and thumb tacks re-create these spaces on the cork wall. Simplify the compositions so it is easier to create in yarn/string. Focus on illusion of space and create drawings for each property discussed during the lecture.
  3. Take photos of your string drawings and post them on your blog for further discussion. Please label your images and describe which method is being used to create the illusion of space.

THIS SHOULD BE COMPLETED DURING CLASS ON OCT. 24TH

DUE: 6 PHOTOS ON BLOG BY THURSDAY, OCT. 26TH

ILLUSION OF SPACE:

  • Overlapping/Transparency
  • Size Change
  • Linear Perspective
  • Atmospheric Perspective
  • Vertical Location
  • Figure/Ground relationships

    WAYS TO CREATE AN ILLUSION OF SPACE:

    Overlapping/Transparency:
    You can fool the viewer into thinking something is closer or further away by overlapping them. Having one object obscure another.

    Vertical Location: 
    Generally speaking, objects that are higher on the picture plane give the impression that they are further away.
