Apparent Texture

Apparent texture – Texture is tactile, it can be touched (usually a 3D form). Apparent Texture is the visual representation of texture such as...

Continuity/Discontinuity

Continuity/Discontinuity - Continuity is the reference to ground, shapes, or objects that are perceived as similar or perceived as one. Disc...

Curvilinear

Curvilinear – A shape whose edge is dominated by curves. Curvilinear shapes can also be referred to as organic shapes, though organic shapes...

Direction

Direction – Direction describes the horizontal, vertical or diagonal representation of a figure. Direction of a figure can be actual or implied. ...

Geometric

Geometric – A shape derived from or suggestive of geometry. Geometric shapes are characterized by precise edges and mathematically consistent ...

Organic

Organic – A shape that visually suggests nature or natural forces. Related Concepts: Geometric, Rectilinear, Shape, Curvilinear. [organi...

Orientation

Orientation – Orientation describes facing such as front, back, top, and bottom. Orientation requires recognition of a figure in order to ...

Physical Texture

Physical texture – Texture is tactile, it can be touched (usually a 3D form). Physical Texture is created through surface variation or the inher...

Position

Position – Position describes the relationship between a figure and the format in which it will function. Position can be described relatively, s...

Proportion

Proportion – Proportion is a correlation of size. It is the relative size of a figure on a given axis in relation to the other axis of the figure...

Rectilinear

Rectilinear – A shape composed of straight lines and angular corners. Rectilinear shapes can also be referred to as geometric shapes, though geo...

Reflectivity

Reflectivity – a property of texture that refers to reflected light. Reflectivity can occur in a physical texture or an apparent texture. ...

Shape

Shape – Shape is a figure with individual identity enclosed by a line. Related Concepts: Geometric, Rectilinear, Organic, Curvilinear. ...

Size

Size – Size is the measurement of a figure relative to the person perceiving it and relative to the ground. The size of a figure can be defined a...

Speed

Speed – Speed is a descriptor specific to motion. Speed describes the rate of change in any given motion. Speed can be defined absolutely (3 seco...

Stasis

Stasis – Stasis is a descriptor specific to motion. Stasis describes a lack of motion or a figure at rest. Stasis is typically used to describe a...

Texture

Texture – Texture describes the visual or tactile quality of a figure or object. Texture can be created visually through the use of multiple mark...
