Comment:

formats may confuse and figures a bit off. Viewpoint as well as ground appears to Format choice? Viewing point influences figure hue. Vanishing boundaries influence comparisons.

Assignment 3: Make four colors appear as three

assignment

Criteria

  • Two colors look like they are the same by placing them on different grounds
  • Show how two colors can appear to be the same, as well as very different
  • Show that they are actually different
  • Design a unique array with dominant anchors
  • Design a unique format
  • Simple format allows easy comparison

Constraints

All colors should be from a single array

Albers reference

Chapter VII, 2 different colors look alike – subtraction of color

Hints for success

  • Grounds – influencing colors – should be extremely different – strong in chroma
  • Figures – influenced colors – should be weaker in chroma, somewhat similar to each other
  • Figure should be placed on the parent ground it favors. The parent’s strong chroma will make the child look more like the other parent

Common problems

  • Illusion fails to convince: looks like 4 colors, not 3
  • More of a value change than hue change (one or both of the grounds is weak in chroma – a tint or shade)
  • Less dramatic than it could be (ground colors have a lot in common)
  • Format hinders or distracts from comparison
  • Backwards – makes 2 colors look more different rather than alike
