Spotting D, SD and SO in Everyday Object Pt 2

Omg guys! Just finished the Yellow Ribbon Run and look what I found in the goodie bag  HAHA! This interesting looking bottle is symmetrical but the odd negative space in the middle kinda kill the overall symmetrical shape of the bottle.  The left side of the bottle reminds me of a Banana though….. The middle negative space is, well, interesting in a sense that it was created to help the user hold on to the bottle firmly.

The Dominant is definitely the yellow part of the bottle because it has greater presence. The Sub-dominant is the black cap. I’m not quite sure about the Subordinate though… I was thinking maybe the Yellow Ribbon Logo?

What do you guys think? Please leave comments! (P/S: hello excuse me I’m helping you guys to add some participation marks so please comment cool)

  1. OMG Participation marks haha

    Honestly I feel as though the negative space is the SD, while the SO is the black cap in terms of size anyway. But it’s interesting how something that’s not there can actually be a SD or SO…

  2. Yea Syl, the yellow handle is likely the D. I think the drinking part is the SD, and the hole in the middle of the yellow handle is the SO. I think it’s an So, because it’s meant to be a cylinder kind of bottle. But this SO element adds a bit of special touch to it. I like how it looks btw.

  3. Yes Naj and King, I see what both of you mean.One could argue the bottle cap is both the SD or SO. Likwise for the void. I feel the bottle cap is not “special” enough to be SO though. Their relative proportions might need to be better contrasted. I also feel the void lends an “accent” to the bottle. One might even say the bigger void is the SD and the multiple smaller voids running along its edge the SO. Thanks Syl for posting such an interesting object for discussion!! 😉
