Final Composition Division of a Groundsheet
It was difficult to choose a final compositions because I really liked a lot of the sketches, but with each one that I chose I was trying to focus on a specific characteristic of the line type. I wanted the vertical and horizontal lines to evoke a since of stability visually and I feel that the composition is reminiscent of modernist architecture from the turn of the 20th century. The curved lines were meant to feel much more organic. I think they are also a little funky, meaning that they wax and wane, but because they are curved they still remain interconnected. I wanted the focus of the diagonal composition to be the negative space in between lines, making the point that when two lines run parallel there is also a third line created in the negative space between the two, this is represented by the white lines in the composition. I found it really difficult to combine all the lines in an effective way in the composition where we were required to juxtapose curved, diagonal, and vertical/horizontal lines. I really enjoyed this project.
