DETERMINE THE FUTURE”  Robert L Peters

The understanding of all creatures is relative to their field of perception, involving illusion, confusion and delusion creating their reality.  Maya is the illusory creative force of the supreme lord.

Life is about how we perceive things and in our images we may want to keep it clean and simple, not loading it down with information, have a point of focus, an area of interest where we are directing the audience and creating the emotion of the moment.

What is the best way to present the information.

When we are creating our visions we think doubt the mood, style, patterns of light, textural references, camera moves, simplicity, clarity, colour, structure, balance and creating depth with things such as additive keying, blurs, transparency and opacity.  We can colour code different elements to tie them together, soften edges and use vignetted edges.

Using all of this to create and control why types of information are available and how we present our vision.

OPTICAL  ILLUSIONS:  The Lie of the Eye

How easily we deceive ourselves with the mind-bending history of visual or optical illusions.  Is the opposite to illusion reality? Is what we think to be real an illusion? The paradoxical nature of illusion. We have learnt to see things with perspective, the Renaissance painting using perspective that we have become familiar with, we assume to know what we see.

VICTOR VASARELY  ( Vonal Stri), MC ESCHER, RENE MAGRITTE, SALVADOR DALI, WACHOWSKI BROTHERS:  The Matrix,  Morpheus as we do not separate the possible from the impossible.

People running from the cinema because the train was coming straight for them, they took the illusion to be true.  The world has become illusion through the non-reality of media and communication, no absolute truth, just different versions of reality in our minds. The rules can be bent, the contradictions to our reality.

ACMI Shaun Tan – The Lost Thing

Set in a city overrun by bureaucracy, Shaun Tan’s picture book The Lost Thing tells the story of a boy who befriends a strange creature that doesn’t fit any of the available pigeon holes.  Melbourne-based production company Passion Pictures Australia invited Shaun to direct an animated version of The Lost Thing. Several years later, the Oscar®-winning short film emerged.  Shaun Tan discusses aspects of his work and the collaboration with Passion Pictures to make the animated version of his book.

What’s in a Font? How Fonts Can Define Your Design  You’ve been asked to design something. Maybe it’s a flyer advertising your company’s next seminar. Maybe it’s the invitations to your friend’s wedding. You know what you want the project to look like. You know what tone you want to convey, but for some reason your ideas aren’t coming across in the final design.  If this sounds familiar, take a look at your fonts.
