Name Professor Course Date The following are the visual qualities of the above sculpture. The sculpture is modeled with metal only. It has been placed on a wood of almost half a meter in length and the wood is placed on a pillar made of cement which has writings explaining the sculpture. The sculpture seems to be old like It is being abstracted the plants around it first making it hard for the viewer to see the tombstone and some other plants abstracting what is written in the tombstone. The image does not have enough lighting hence this also abstracts it. Its color and the color of the background are almost the same this also abstracts the tombstone. [...]
This assignment requires you to create/respond to the following prompts. Please remember that the assignment must be formatted into a single pdf that is under 2mb. SEEING: Look at a physical piece of art for 15 minutes and write down a minimum of 15 things you notice about the works physical visual qualities, (size, materials, color, texture, etc.) You should not include any analysis or commentary whatsoever about the subject. I am not interested in what you think this piece is about, how it make you feel, etc. I am only interested in what you see. The artwork you examine needs to be located on the campus of OSU. There are many to choose from in the Library, Fairbanks Gallery, and in the Memorial Union. Include an image of the piece you decide to spend some time with, and neatly list your observations. You choose to spend some time with one of the new public art installations on campus. My recommendations would be the work by Hypersonic Design Group in the Learning Innovation Center, the work by Amorphous architecture in the lobby of the Student Experience Center, the suspended stainless steel abacus sculpture by Ron King in Austin Hall, or the dichroic acrylic forms in the entry of Johnson Hall. LINE: Draw an image in graphite or ink, or take a black and white photograph in which line is the primary visual element, that means the image should be mostly made up of lines, not just have line in it. This can be any type of line described in our text, (outline, contour, implied, expressive, autographic, grid, etc.) This is about how YOU see line. Include two sentences answering the following... a. What kind of line is being used? (examples of different kinds of line are in your text). b. What makes the image visually interesting to you? i.e. Why did you create it? Make sure your image is IN BLACK AND WHITE ONLY and it is YOUR creation. Points will be deducted if it isn't. FORM and SPACE: Take a photograph of a three-dimensional form or space in a manner so that the subject is abstracted in some way/ not immediately recognizable. Ways to do this are by manipulating point of view, scale, orientation, transparency, and reflection. You could create an image of something as small as a piece of fruit or as large as a building. Isolate the form you are interested in within the frame of the photograph or drawing. This can be done by filling the frame with the form you are photographing, or surrounding it with uncluttered negative space. In other words, don't have a bunch of other visual information competing for attention. In a few concise sentences, explain what the subject is of your photograph and how is it being abstracted. Remember it MUST be a black and white image.
