- principles of organization
- moments of force
- allover pattern
- approximate symmetry
- a Concepts that guide the arrangement and integration of the elements in achieving a sense of visual order and overall visual unity. They are harmony, variety, balance, proportion, dominance, movement, and economy.
- b The use of similar imagery on either side of a central axis. The visual material on one side may resemble that on the other but is varied to prevent visual monotony.
- c A designed unit or pattern that is repeated often enough in the total composition to make it a significant or dominant feature; similar to "theme" or "melody" in a musical composition.
- d The direction and degree of energy implied by the art elements in specific compositional situations; amounts of visual thrust produced by such matters as dimension, placement, and accent.
- e A design that is formed through the systematic repetition of smaller designed units over an entire surface.

- A 3D, moving sculpture
- 1.) The total appearance, organization, or inventive arrangement of all the visual elements according to the principles that will develop unity in the artwork; composition. 2.) Sculpture term for the shape of a 3D work.
- The organizing process or underlying plan on which artists base their total work. In a broader sense, it may be considered synonymous with "form" and "composition."

5 True/False Questions
proportion → The comparative relationship of size between units or the parts of a whole; one of the principles of organization.
atectonic → 3D work characterized by considerable amounts of space; open, as opposed to massive (or tectonic), and often with extended appendages.
variety → A principle of organization in which parts of a composition are made to relate through commonality - repeated or shared characteristics, elements, or visual units; opposite of variety.
balance → The association of size relative to a constant standard of specific unit of measure related to human dimensions.
accent → Any stress or emphasis given to the elements of a composition that brings them more attention than other features that surround or are close to them; can be created by a brighter color, darker value, greater size, or any other means by which a difference is expressed.
