The New Basics Reading

As we move out of the last project we are starting to learn about using other graphic elements besides dots.  The use of line started off the new project as we learned about movement, depth, and time using linear elements.  By manipulating the line so that it would have width we changed them into planes which have a characteristic of boldness and stability.  These objects can be positioned so that they appear to move throughout space and this can give a design a depth of time and space.  Planes and lines also create a sense of foreground and background, where one appears to lay on top of the other. it can also be made where neither field appears to be dominate. this can cause confusion but pulls the viewers eyes all over the design.
