art 110 illusion of space
Preston Defosses -examples of creating space and depth
1. Size: figures that are closer are larger
2. Exaggerated Size: hieratic scaling is used to make figures of more importance larger.
3. Overlapping: trees, mountains, and clouds overlapping create the illusion of depth
4. Vertical location: Objects closer to the bottom of the image are closer. The figure at the bottom is closer than the buildings higher on the landscape.
5. Arial or Atmospheric perspective: The sky changes color to create the illusion of depth.
6. Linear Perspective: parallel lines recede to create depth
7. One point perspective: all lines recede to one point to create depth. In this image the vanishing point is somewhere behind the male figure's head.
8. Two point perspective: two points in which the horizon recedes
9. Multiple Point perspective: horizon recedes on multiple points
10. Amplified perspective: figures of more importance are larger to create a dynamic of importance
11. multiple perspectives: no a single clear vanishing point
12. Isometric projection:parallel lines remain parallel
13. Transparency: there's depth but there is no clear spacial pattern
