Designing for animals

Working with basic rules of visual perception

This week you will learn to visualize simple opposing contents such as something black / something white; something close/ something far; with/without camouflage; foreground/background.

Fold at least 3 of sheets of A4 paper into 2 halves. ---- Design on each sheet 1 image on the left side and 1 (opposing) image on the right side. ---- Work with simple forms, they should be noticed and recognized by an average human being (or any other animal of your choise). ---- Use, preferably, black and white. Use whatever technique you like (paint, marker, collage). ---- 1/2 day
