Striking Silhouettes

In this project we were to take the sillouettes of everyday figures and by overlapping, enlarging, or even reversing the images we had to create a patern.

People are accustomed to receiving visual information in a systematic and organized manner and yet some viewers associate order with institutional rigidity and will reject visual communications that seem too highly structured. The point is to develop judgment about your audience’s preferences and tolerances with respect to order and risk.

In the second part of this project we were to choose a word a place it over figures to come up with a compelling compostition.


  1. This is a very cool project! What every day figure did you select for the first part? I can't recognize it at all.
