the ways in which the elements (lines, shapes, etc.) of a piece are arranged
Symmetrical - elements are given equal "weight" from an imaginary line in the middle of a piece.
Near symmetry- same weight…not the same stuff.
Asymmetrical - occurs when elements are placed unevenly in a piece, but work together to produce harmony overall.
a visual flow through the composition as you move from object to object by way of placement and position
Actual – an object that has true motion.
Implied - the suggestion of motion in a design.
the repetition of an element (or elements) in a work
High contrast= VERY different
Low contrast= a little different
