Project 10: Symbols, repetition, and tone and colour

So in this exercise I have taken the symbol and carried out a series of experiments using shapes overlaid on them. The idea is to just see at what point things transform into other things.

Symbols 3 (19 of 23)

Symbols 3 (16 of 23)

Symbols 3 (15 of 23)

Symbols 3 (14 of 23)

The monochrome images work well for me. The very small grey repeating symbols lose their individuality and get lost into a grey mass. The other one of interest is the last images (directly above) which has words and rectangles embedded into it and this means it presents itself from a distance as a blue image of rectangles and it is only as you get closer and inspect the image you see it made up of symbols and contains words.

However, I don’t think I have been successful in terms of creating something that highlights transformation through scale. I think that needs a different context so that is what I will explore next.
