Transcript of Op Art Cube Project

Following the Pop Art movement of the 1960's, Op Art came on the scene. Initially many referred to it as kinetic art because the art moved or appeared to move because of an illusion. Visual effects that cause illusions include vibrating colors, pulsating patterns, and concentric colors. The patterns disturb the eye and cause it to see movement. Many viewers of Op Art are compelled to turn away because of the effect.
Task: You will be creating a 3-D Op Art sculpture. Using what we have learned in this unit, and your own research on the Internet, you will design a cube with a variety of Op Art designs.

he created retinal vibrations.

Another well known Op Art illusionist is Bridget Riley. She worked primarily in black and white with linear waves, billows, and vibrations.

The Op Art period was short and sweet. Although short, Op Art had a strong influence on textile and product design, music, advertising, and interior design.
