viscom 1: 1 Gestalt

  • analyzed the concept of having definition + photographs + graphic images
    • I knew I wanted to make the definition+photo+graphic into a comprehensive puzzle that each tell more information
  • Searched for engaging photographs for inspiration
  • I wanted for my photos to suggest a background story and have the graphic images complement or mimic the photographs. 
  • I organized my photographs into themes: 
    • 1. Abandoned Crime Scenes
    • 2. Surreal Situations
    • 3. Portraits


DEFINITIONS
similarity: groups have similar qualities
proximity: the space between objects determine their relation to each other
closure: fill in the blank
continuance: the seamless transition from one object to another
