ABOUT DREAM

 

About dream is a photo essay portraying the dreams occurring in different levels of sleep, light sleep, deep sleep and REM (rapid eyes movement). Dream in light sleep seems to be a mixture of reality and fiction. In the first stage, I started losing my consciousness and became more tentative of surrounding things, like air-conditioning and fans. Then I morphed into a flying insect and exited my room, which marked the complete loss of consciousness. Dreams now turned to be more vague and hard to recall in deep sleep. Foreground and background appeared to emerge. In the last stage, vivid dreams occurred and were often memorable. In the video, I was put in a familiar, but bizarre place and trying to hide from the crowds. In the middle of escaping from the place, the exposure of myself awakened me to reality.

Color Scheme

color_schemes

In color theory, a color scheme is the choice of colors used in design for a range of media. Color schemes are used to create style and appeal. Colors that create an aesthetic feeling when used together will commonly accompany each other in color schemes.

 

Complementary colors

The complementary colors are pairs of colors which, when combined, cancel each other out. This means that when combined, they produce a grey-scale color like white or black. When placed next to each other, they create the strongest contrast for those particular two colors.

Analogous colors

(also called Dominance Harmony) color scheme are groups of colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, with one being the dominant color, which tends to be a primary or secondary color, and two on either side complementing, which tend to be tertiary.

The term analogous refers to the having analogy, or corresponding to something in particular. An analogous color scheme creates a rich, monochromatic look. It’s best used with either warm or cool colors, creating a look that has a certain temperature as well as proper color harmony. While this is true, the scheme also lacks contrast and is less vibrant than complementary schemes.

Split-complementary

(also called Compound Harmony) color scheme is a variation of the complementary color scheme. In addition to the base color, it uses the two “Analogous” colors adjacent to its complement. Split-complementary color scheme has the same strong visual contrast as the complementary color scheme, but has less pressure.

Triadic colors

The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel. The easiest way to place them on the wheel is by using a triangle of equal sides. Triadic color schemes tend to be quite vibrant, even when using pale or unsaturated versions of hues, offers a higher degree of contrast while at the same time retains the color harmony. This scheme is very popular among artists because it offers strong visual contrast while retaining balance, and color richness. The triadic scheme is not as contrasting as the complementary scheme, but it is easier to accomplish balance and harmony with these colors.

Tetradic colors

The tetradic (double complementary) colors scheme is the richest of all the schemes because it uses four colors arranged into two complementary color pairs. This scheme is hard to harmonize and requires a color to be dominant or subdue the colors.; if all four colors are used in equal amounts, the scheme may look unbalanced.

Rectangle

The rectangle color scheme uses four colors arranged into two complementary pairs and offers plenty of possibilities for variation. Rectangle color schemes work best when one color is dominant.

Square

The square color scheme is similar to the rectangle, but with all four colors spaced evenly around the color circle. Square color schemes works best when all colors are evenly balanced.

HUMPTY DUMPTY HAD A GREAT FALL.
Solution: 

Frame 1 humorously resembles a scene from movie ‘Matrix’ ,  while bringing contrast to convey a depth and creating a  downwards movement by repeating the subjects.

In Frame 2, the repeated trees are arranged around a central point, directing along different scales, to create a swirling movement towards the main character.

SOLUTION: 

In Frame 1, horses and knights are arranged in radial balance from small to big size, which gives a distinct focal point to King’s throne.

Frame 2 and 3 demonstrate repetition and patterns in a random way. Different subjects are contrasted in size, position and rotation, bringing dynamism into the layout.

THE COW JUMPED OVER THE MOON.
SOLUTION: 

Frame 1 and 2 depicts a cow orbiting a plate, contrasted by different size, in an asymmetrical layout.

Frame 3 demonstrates cows riding on the moon and flying to the sky in an symmetrical way, while contrasted by reversing color.

THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE.
Solution: 

Frame 1 demonstrates a flow of shoes flying towards a woman, who is in the upper third of layout. And white space casts on the main elements as if the light is shining through a open door, which makes the composition more cinematic.

SHE HAD SO MANY CHILDREN SHE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
Solution:

Frame 1 and 2 are exploring different spatial composition.

Frame 1 depicts a direction from bottom to top and mimic the explosion from a small point to the entire filled up space. It demonstrates contrast by silhouetting out a woman figure.

Frame 2 depicts a flow from far to deep space, creating a silhouette of a lady shoe to indicate where they live. Finally the flow ends at where the woman stands, portraying a progressive problem to her.
