THE UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS
GD213 DESIGN SYSTEMS
An intensive laboratory where the formal aspects of composition, organic and geometric form, color, symbolic drawing, craftsmanship, and processes of conceptualizing are investigated. Assignments are founded on directed goals and playful investigation to train the student in areas of selection, selfcriticism, set theory, and visual logic. Prerequisite: Completion of the Foundation program, or permission of the instructor by portfolio review and interview.
For this assignment, students were asked explore properties of color using simple shapes. Concepts of hue, saturation, and lightness were explored using paint and cut paper. Final compositions were created to demonstrate subtle variations in value to create distinctions between the various shapes.
