Gradation Project: Thoughts and Final Submission

Coming up with different gradations was a challenge compared to creating repetitions and radiations. Depending on what object is used it could make or break the piece. Working with simple shapes, such as circles and squares, seemed to be the best fitting objects to use for this project.

I also found myself creating images that descended and gradually became smaller because it gave the greatest sense of change throughout the image. Having images decent on an angle didn’t give me to look I wanted.

Below are the ten images that I created for the gradation project. Enjoy!

Using the eye object from my repetition project, I created a gradation that descends downward creating the look of buildings.

By taking a square and placing a rotated square on top of it, I created a very interesting shape and gradation.

I first began by making gradations of circles in three various looks. Once I made all of the gradations I wanted, I copied them and placed them in the same direction.
