Transcript of Illusion of Space and Motion

Illusion of Space and Motion Different uses of Linear Perspective: > One point perspective

> Two point perspective

> Multipoint perspective

> Amplified perspective Open form and Closed form Devices to show depth: > Size
> Overlapping
> Vertical location
> Aerial perspective
> Plan, Elevation, Perspective
> Linear Perspective
> Open Form and Closed Form Spatial devices used in 'The Duel After the Masquerade': Amplified perspective Two-Point Perspective One point perspective The Palazzo Spada, Rome Multipoint perspective Closed form - Chardin's painting puts the focal point in the center of the composition; thus our eyes are not led out of the painting. Jean-Baptiste Simeon.
The Attributes of Music Open form - This recreation of Alex Katz's painting, 'Ada's Red Sandals', is cropped to form an unexpected composition. > As we move up the picture plane we also move back in space.
> Foreground figures and trees are larger.
> The edges of the tree line and the angle of the figures on the left follow linear perspective.
> Many instances of overlapping with the placement of figures.
> The atmosphere softens forms in the distance: value contrast diminishes, and colors become cool and subtle. Anticipated motion • Much of the implication of movement present in art is caused by our memory and experience. We recognize temporary, unstable body positions and realize that change must be imminent (immediate). • In a process called kinesthetic empathy, we tend to re-create unconsciously in our own bodies the actions we observe. This involuntary reaction also applies to static images in art, where it can enhance the feeling of movement already given in the art piece. A feeling of anticipated movement can be enhanced by implied lines and gestures.
> The baseball players are about to complete their actions, and the dynamics are accentuated by the diagonal lines (diagonal = active) in the composition. Ways to Suggest Motion > Figure repeated
The figure of Krishna appears over and over in different positions and situations to convey a narrative over time (and the implied movement.) > Figure cropped • Comic strips employ both techniques of figure repetition and figure cropping to create a sense of motion. > Figure repeated
> Figure cropped
> Blurred outlines and fast shapes
> Multiple image > Blurred outlines and fast shapes Cadzilla, designed by Larry Erickson and Billy F. Gibbons > Multiple Image When we see one figure in an overlapping sequence of poses, as in Pole Vaulter, the slight change in each successive position suggests movement taking place. Optical Movement • Afterimage and Eye movement
Although drawings, paintings, and prints cannot move - the eye can, or the image on the retina can flicker, and graphic elements can induce these movements.
The tapering and undulating lines in Chinese art trigger this visual effect. Unknown. A Wave under the Moon Intense colors can also induce such eye movement as our eye struggles to focus on different colors simultaneously. In addition to that, the retina will fatigue from exposure to a strong color, and as we glance away an afterimage will flicker. This creates a jumpy movement as seen in Picasso's painting of the Harlequin.
