LA – Symmetry/asymmetry

In this assignment, you will be given the opportunity to also test your idea sketching skills. It is important to start working with basic ideas on paper and develop your concept from there on out.

On an A4 landscape page, draw four equal squares. Create 4 more pages in this way. So, you’ll have 5 pages with four squares on each.
Draw one or two squares or rectangles in each empty square to achieve the following visual effects (refer to your textbook, p.41 as guidance). You can work with the interaction of rectangles and squares to make the balance or imbalance more evident.
Entering left
Movement to the right
Movement to the left
Movement downwards
Movement upwards
Balance
Tension
Symmetry/asymmetry
Produce at least two different versions of each effect, recording your results each time. Explain in one or two sentences what you wanted to achieve (as shown in your manual).

 

Entering left: By putting the figures at the very start of the empty square you get a feeling that the figure is entering from the left. 
Movement to the right: By placing the figures on the right hand side, you make a movement to the right.

Symmetry: By placing same size figures with equal distance from the edges you get a symmetrical feeling. 
Asymmetry: By placing figures figures with different size on places that dont make a “line” you make it look asymmetrical.

Tension: By placing the figures “towards” each other you build a tension between them.
Symmetry: By placing same size figures with equal distance from the edges you get a symmetrical feeling.

Movement upwards: With the figures in the upper part of the frame, you get upwards movement.
Balance: To create balance, I put the figures in the middle, with the same amount of negative space on each side.

Movement to the left: By putting the figures on the left han side, I created movement to the left.
Movement downwards: I created downwards movement by putting the figures on the bottom of the frame.
