Gradient (06100017)

Filed under: Matt — Matt Alofs @ 12:34



  1. This is cleverly composed. In essence, it is, for me, straying into pop art territory or Bauhaus (or even design). Maybe the minimalism makes it more Bauhaus for me.

    The thicker cables on the right pretty well compensate for the empty quarter in compositional terms, leaving that empty quarter to resonate as a different feeling texture to the remainder (the pop art side of it).

    It’s also austere and would appeal as a picture on the wall to those with a bent for geometry and abstract shapes.

  2. More wall than book. I don’t often think that about a photo.

    This one invites the viewer (this viewer) to stare and ponder.

  3. This interests me as a graphic designer — the spacing is somehow just right. The title also.

  4. Bauhaus eh? Have to think on that one. Function is form and all that.

    ‘More wall than book. I don’t often think that about a photo.’

    It would have to be big on the wall though, real big, bigger than my printer can do, although I might try it still.

  5. The lines against the gradient somehow call to mind a musical chord.

  6. Is it what you cannot see that makes this interesting?

  7. I agree with Rex on this. Though that slightly curvy wire is interesting in itself. The scale of this is misleading too. Been staring and pondering this for over a week now and this is the best I can come up with! Must be good!

  8. lovely. I hear music. That D string looks to be a bit problematic.

  9. the left-handed stringing might be considered a bit sinister too.

  10. I’d be one of those who’d have it on the wall. On the small screen there is an interesting motion to it as I scroll up and down. Love the slight grandient offsetting the geometry.
