The distribution of interest or visual weight in a work. Some types of balance are symmetric, asymmetric, and radial. The concept of visual balance is often illustrated using a seesaw. Like a seesaw, when two elements of an artwork have the same visual weight and are on opposite sides of the center, equally distant from it, they balance.
Likewise, a smaller element can balance out a larger one if the smaller one is farther from the center and the larger one nearer.
In two-dimensional art, the center of the work serves as the fulcrum the visual center. In three-dimensional art, visual balance and the physical balance of mass both come into play, and the balance of one does not assure the balance of the other. The difference in quality between two instances of an art element, or using opposing qualities next to each other.
The greater the contrast, the more something will stand out and call attention to itself. This applies to whole works of art as well as areas within an artwork. Areas with greater contrast in value stronger darks and lights will tend to appear more forward in space, as over distance atmospheric haze lessens contrast atmospheric perspective.
Contrast can also be used to set the mood or tone of the work. High contrast makes a work more vibrant, vigorous, brash, lively - it "pops" more. Low-contrast work is more quiet, calm, subtle, reflective, soothing. Emphasis, Dominance and Focal Point. Emphasis is created by visually reinforcing something we want the viewer to pay attention to.
The strongest focal point with the greatest visual weight is the dominant element of the work. Elements of secondary importance could be termed sub-dominant, and elements with the least visual weight subordinate. Isolation, leading lines and convergence, contrast, anomaly, size, placement, framing, focus and depth of field, and absence of focal points are some of the strategies used to help create these degrees of importance.
Harmonious elements have a logical relationship or progression - in some way they work together and complement each other. When a jarring element is added - something that goes against the whole - it is said to be dissonant, just like an off-note in a musical performance.
Unity is created by using harmonious similarity and repetition, continuance, proximity and alignment, and closure of design elements in different parts of the work so that the parts RELATE to each other and create a unified whole, that can be greater than the sum of the parts, rather than an ill-fitting and meaningless assortment of elements.
Also, giving some elements the ability to be moved or move on their own, via internal or external power. These include lines, diagonals and unbalanced elements; blurring; placement; direction; and motion lines and afterimages.elcome to the world of organization development(OD)!
