Terms in this set (50)
the illusion of deep space produced in graphic works by lightening values, softening details and textures, reducing value contrasts, and neutralizing colors in objects as they recede
Ornamenting or enriching but, more importantly in art, stressing the two-dimensional nature of an artwork or any of its elements. Emphasizes the essential flatness of a surface.
an imaginative treatment of forms that gives a sense of intervals or time or motion
a pictorial device (used notably by the Egyptians) in which several spacial aspects of the same subject are combined in the same image
a concept in which the picture frame acts as a window through which objects can be seen receding endlessly
interior or exterior settings of media created by artists to heighten the viewers' awareness of the environmental space
The positioning of planes, objects, or shapes so that they appear to pass through each other, which locks them together within a specified area of space.
the illusion of space that the artist creates by instinctively manipulating certain space-producing devices, including overlapping, transparency, interpenetration, inclined planes, disproportionate scale, fractional representation, and the inherent spatial properties of the art elements
A technical drawing system in which a three-dimensional object is presented two-dimensionally; starting with the nearest vertical edge, the horizontal edges are drawn at a 30-degree angle, and all verticals are projected perpendicularly from a horizontal base
a system used to depict three-dimensional images on a two-dimensional surface; it develops the optical phenomenon of diminishing size by treating edges as converging parallel lines that extend to a vanishing point or points on the horizon (eye level) and recede from the viewer
a technical drawing system in which a three-dimensional object is presented two-dimensionally; the front and back sides of the object are parallel to the horizontal base, and the other planes are drawn as parallels coming off the front plane at a 45-degree angle
graphic representation of two-dimensional views of an object, showing a plan, vertical elevations, and/or a section
any graphic system- including atmospheric and linear- used in creating the illusion of three-dimensional images and/or spatial relationships in which the objects or their parts appear to diminish as they recede into the distance
1. the use of elements to create the illusion of the third dimension on a two-dimensional surface
2. three-dimensional art forms, such as architecture, sculpture, and ceramics
an artwork, graphic in concept but sculptural in application, that utilizes relatively shallow depth to establish images. the space development may range from very limited projection, known as "low," to more exaggerated space development, known as "high". Meant to be viewed frontally, not in round
a graphic system for depicting three-dimensional images, commonly seen in traditional East-Asian art, in which the "parallel" lines of objects or their parts seen to converge toward the viewer, rather than away into the distance
the illusion of limited depth. The imagery appears to move only a slight distance back from the picture plane
the interval, or measurable distance, between points or images; can be actual or illusionary
A condition in which the positive figure and the negative background seem to reverse roles, fluctuating back and forth between the two functions to create an ambiguous sense of space. Often employed as a transition between contrasting values or colors and is a valuable tool for creating optical illusions, denying space, and blending an image into its background.
Possesses the dimensions of (or illusions of) height, width, and depth. In the graphic arts, the feeling of depth is an illusion, while in the plastic arts, the work has actual depth.
a visual quality in which a distant image or element can be seen through a nearer one
Possesses the dimensions of height and width, especially when considering the flat surface, or picture plane.
1. An area lacking positive substance and consisting of negative space. 2. A spatial area within an object that penetrates and passes through it.
the movement found in art forms like kinetic art, where bodies physically change their location during a period of time
the rapid display of a sequence of drawings, computer-generated images, or pictures of objects such as clay figures that create the illusion of a moving image
cell (or single cell)
One image from a series of related images that presents an idea. Commonly found in comic strips, graphic novels, or storyboard presentations, which tend to isolate the images from each other by an outline in the shape of a rectangle. Also refer to the individual frames of animated cartoons.
a cinematic technique in which the subject fills the camera frame; used to focus the viewer's attention on specific imagery or detail
a cinematic technique that abruptly shifts from one event or character to another and is often used to allow the viewer to move between characters and change points of view as the dialogue or action evolves
an aesthetic technique, used as a film or video transition between images or scenes, in which one shot disappears as another slowly appears
the length of time in which an activity takes place
an aesthetic technique, used as a film or video transition between scenes, in which the image slowly darkens to black
a cinematic technique of jumping to a sequence of events in the story that are meant to have taken place in the past
a cinematic technique of jumping to a sequence of events in the story that are meant to take place in the future
an imaginative treatment of forms that gives a sense of intervals of time or motion
A single static image as applied to cartoons, storyboards, animation, films, videos, or computer-generated graphics
an early twentieth-century movement that sought to express the fourth dimension through the speed, power, and motion of the Industrial Age
the sense or illusion of movement given to a static object
derived from greek word meaning motion, includes the elements of actual motion
a cinematic technique in which the filmmaker provides a distant view with a broader perspective of image; often used to imply a larger conceptual context
a cinematic technique in which the filmmaker provides a view that seems to lie somewhere between a long shot and a close-up
A three-dimensional, moving sculpture.
the process of moving, or changing place or position in space
the illusion of a moving image created by showing a series of still pictures in rapid sequence
the combination of many different groups of media such as text, still, and moving graphics, and spoken and instrumental sounds; also often integrated with communication technologies involving television, video, telephones, and computers
a photographic technique that shows a figure in motion by displaying a rapid series of exposures within the same image
1. a cinematic technique that slows down the movement and time in a film, created by shooting a high number of frames per second and showing them at a much slower speed. 2. The sense that time and movement are progressing more slowly than normal
one frame (or full-screen image) from a series of frames normally seen in a film or video presentation that when viewed in sequence present the illusion of a moving picture.
superimposing, superimposed images
a technique in which various views of the same subject are placed on top of each other in the same image
a system or way of measuring the interval between events or experiences
a recording of visual images that are stored in an electronic format (digital or videotape), and viewed on a television, computer monitor, or projection screen. The sensation of motion is an illusion created by the rapid sequence of images
