Look Up to the Sky and SEEEEEEEEEEE

There's currently another project I'm working on, which relates to the previous post I made.
That's right.
Gestalt Principles.
Before I talk about this more, I'm going to list some of the parameters that I'm stuck with the teacher provided to us. In this project:
  • It has to have at least two Gestalt principles present in the photo
  • It has to have at least 12 shapes in the final picture
  • There has to be two-seven colors in our final product
  • It can only be silhouettes in the picture
  • It must reflect a positive or negative event/happening/problem

Keng Lye: Proximity and Continuation

Keng Lye creates these lovely pieces of artwork by adding layers of resin and acrylic paint (no doubt was he inspired by Riusuke Fukahori). From seeing his pieces, I could indicate two different Gestalt principles at play: continuation and proximity.

In this photo, it's hard to believe that there aren't any real fish in the bowl, but rather layered with resin and acrylic paints. But when one pays attention to the motion of the group of fish (that's where proximity plays in), the viewer's eyes continue in a circular path (and that's continuation).

G-g-g-g-g-g-glitchy Self Portrait

This is an introductory project to Adobe Illustrator where the only limitations were:
    1. It had to be a self portrait
    2. It had to be made solely from rectangles.
  This took roughly eight hours to accomplish (and I'm completely excluding the hours of procrastination).
