    • STUDIES IN -- BASIC DESIGN CONCEPTUALISED AND CARRIED OUT BY -- PROF. ARUN OGALE TOPIC – SURFACE STUDIES – DOT AND LINE COMPILED AND PRODUCED BY – AR. SUVARNA VAZE BASIC DESIGN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CELL
      • TOPIC TEXT
      • TOPIC EXERCISE BRIEF
      • TOPIC EXCERCISE MECHANISM
      • STUDENTS WORK
      • BASIC DESIGN
      • TOTAL ARCHITECTURE
      • THE BASIC IDEA OF THIS COURSE : IS TO INVOLVE THE STUDENT IN TO THE AWARENESS OF “ SPACE ”.
      • THERE ARE TWO MAIN ASPECTS OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN. ONE IS VISUAL – TO BE COVERED BY BASIC DESIGN.THE OTHER IS INTELLECTUAL AND ANALYTICAL – TO BE COVERED BY TOTAL ARCHITECTURE.
      • THE BASIC ELEMENTS OF VISUAL ASPECTS ARE LIGHT, SPACE, FORM, SURFACE, ALSO SCALE AND PROPORTION.
      • THE IDEA IS TO EXPOSE THE STUDENT TO A TOTALITY OF VISUAL EXPERIENCE FIRST, BEFORE MAKING HIM STUDY INDIVIDUAL ELEMENTS OF THE SAME.
      • BASIC DESIGN HELPS STUDENTS IN
      • CLARIFICATION OF CERTAIN FUNDAMENTAL AREAS OF ENQUIRY.
      • REJECTION OF CONVENTIONS AND AN ACCEPTANCE OF IDEA WHICH IS DERIVED FROM STUDENTS OWN EXPERIENCE, INFORMATION THAT STUDENT GETS FROM APPRECIATION OF THE PHYSICAL NATURE OF MATERIALS AND THEIR FORMAL AND SPACIAL FUNCTIONING
      • DEVELOP THE PERSONAL ENQUIRY ON THE BASIS OF EXPERIENCE – NOT THEORY.
      • THE METHOD ADOPTED IS SEQUENCE OF SPECIALLY DESIGNED EXERCISES TO EXPOSE THE STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE THE VISUAL ELEMENTS OF DESIGN DIRECTLY.
      • THE EXERCISES ARE ON THE BASIS OF CRAFTMANSHIP WHICH IS INDISPENSIBLE AS IT IS THE PRIME SOURCE OF ALL CREATIVE WORK.
      • THE STUDENT IS ENCOURAGED BY CONSTANT PERSONAL ATTENTION TO EVOLVE AND DEVELOP HIS OWN SPACIAL CONCEPTS.
      • THE EVALUATION IS ON THE BASIS OF THE EXTENT TO WHICH STUDENT HAS BEEN ABLE TO RE DEFINE HIS WORK.
      • WHY BASIC DESIGN ?
      • TO INVOLVE STUDENTS INTO AWARENESS OF SPACE.
      • TO LIBERATE AND STRENGTHEN THE CREATIVE ABILITY OF STUDENTS.
      • TO GET RID OF CONVENTIOS, PRECONCEIVED IDEAS.
      • TO EVOKE AN INDIVIDUAL RESPONSE IN THE STUDENTS OF VARIOUS TEMPERAMENTS AND TALENTS TO GENERATE THE CREATIVE ATMOSPHERE CONDUTIVE TO ORIGINAL – GENUINE WORK.
      • TO EXPLORE ONE’S OWN CREATIVE POTENTIALS TO AQUIRE NATURAL SELF CONFIDENCE. TO DEVELOP PERSONAL ENQUIRY ON THE BASIS OF EXPERIENCE AND NOT THEORY.
      • TOTAL ARCHITECTURE - THE OBJECTIVE OF INTRODUCTION OF THIS SUBJECT IS TO EXPLAIN THE INTELLECTUAL PROCESS BEHIND THE STUDY OF ANY DISCIPINE , IN THIS CASE, IT IS ARCHITECTURE.
      • ANY PROCESS OF LEARNING OR EDUCATION INVOLVES ARTICULATION AND COMMUNICATION WHICH NECESSIATES NOT ONLY CLARITY OF SUBSTANCE TO BE COMMUNICATED BUT ALSO THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE LIMITATIONS OF THE CHOSEN MEDIUM IN WHICH THE COMMUNICATION IS SOUGHT TO BE MADE.
      • THE OTHER ASPECT OF THIS SUBJECT IS UNDERSTANDING OF TOTAL
      • SCOPE OF THIS DISCIPLINE.
      • ATTITUDE ORIENTATION STUDIES ( COURSE) – TAKING UP A COURSE LIKE ARCHITECTURE AFTER SCHOOLING 10+2 – IMPLIES NOT ONLY A CHANGE OF STAGE IN THE PROCESS OF STUDENTS GROWTH , BUT ALSO A DEFINATE DIRECTION TOWARDS SPECIALIZATION IN AN UNFAMILIER DISCIPLINE. THEREFORE IT BECOMES IMPERATIVE TO CULTIVATE A RIGHT KIND OF ATTITUDE TOWARDS UNFAMILIER DISCIPLINE, IN THIS CASE – DESIGN STUDIES – ARCHITECTURE. A TOTAL DIVERSION FROM EARLIER EDUCATIONAL PROCESS. THE PERCEPTIONAL, VISUAL STUDIES AND INTELLECTUAL UNDERSTANDING IS NEATLY PROCESSED.
      • IN THIS ATTITUDE ORIENTATION STUDIES, RIGHT KIND OF QUALITY OF OVERALL PERCEPTION GETS INCULCATED TO TAKE UP THE BASIC DESIGN STUDIES WHICH FINALLY HELP DEVELOP RIGHT KIND OF ATTITUDE TOWARDS DESIGN STUDIES – ARCHITECTURE.
      • FINALLY, BASIC DESIGN UNFOLDS SEVERAL LAYERS OF PERCEPTION, CONCEPTION, REFINEMENT AND ACTUALIZATION OF SPACE AND ITS BASIC VISUAL ELEMENTS. IT ALSO HELPS TO –
      • CONTROL
      • FREE
      • CHOOSE
      • DISCRIMINATE, DISCARD , ELIMINATE AND ABOVE ALL “ CREATE ”.
      • AD INVOLVES STRUCTURING OF ‘SPACE’ WITH RESPECT TO FUNCTION AND SITE.
      • AD IS A PROCESS OF INTEGRATING FUNCTION, STRUCTURE AND SITE, ALSO ENVIRONMENT INTO ONE SPACIAL CONCEPT.
      • THE TRANSITION FROM BD TO AD IS VERY CRUCIAL AS ADDITIONAL CONSTRAINTS OF FUNCTION, STRUCTURE, AND SITE – CAN BE INHIBITING AND OVERWHELMING, BUT THEIR RECOGNITION, UNDERSTANDING AND RESOLUTION IS A CHALLENGING TASK. IT NEEDS TO BE HANDLED CAREFULLY AS THE SPECTRUM OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN MAGNIFIES SLOWLY INTO MANY ASPECTS LIKE –
      • PHYSICAL
      • INTELLECTUAL
      • VISUAL
      • ENVIRONMENTAL
      • SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGICAL
      • BD – I TOPICS
      • FRAME WORK OF COURSE IN ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION.
      • ATTITUDE ORIENTATION COURSE.
      • STUDENTS , TEACHERS INTERACTION – OUTDOOR EXERCISE.
      • INTRODUCTION TO ARCHITECTURE
      • INTRODUCTION TO BASIC DESIGN – INTERACTION + STUDIO PROCESS
      • EXPLAINING – CONCEPT OF MARKS EARNING PROCESS – IT IS YOUR PROPERTY, YOU HAVE TO EARN IT.
      • FORMING GROUPS OF STUDENTS ON FEW MAJOR CRITERIAS TO SEE THAT ALL GROUPS ARE ALMOST EQUAL.
      • COSMIC ENERGY AND EMERGED UNIVERSE, LIFE.
      • LIFE IS EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESSION.
      • LIFE IS LIVING AND LIVING NEEDS SPACE.
      • SPACE IS THE ESSENCE OF ARCHITECTURE.
      • SPACE IS ARCHITECTURE.
      • ‘ LA O TSE ’ EXPLAINS THE IMPOTANCE OF SPACE – VOID , EMPTYNESS, VERY SIMPLY INFACT THE ESSENSE THE WHEEL LIES IN ITS SIMPLICITY.
      • THIRTY SPOKES MEET AT THE HUB, BUT THE VOID WITHIN THEM CREATES THE ESSENSE OF WHEEL.
      • CLAY FORMS THE POT, BUT THE VOID WITHIN CREATES THE ESSENSE OF THE POT.
      • WALLS WITH DOORS AND WINDOWS MAKE THE HOUSE BUT THE VOID WITHIN CREATES THE ESSENSE OF THE HOUSE.
      • FUNDAMENTALLY, THE MATERIAL CONTAINS THE UTILITY. THE IMMATERIAL CONTAINS THE ESSENSE.
      • SPACE – ANYTHING THAT CAN BE OCCUPIED.
      • TO BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE THE SPACE, ONE NEEDS TO PERCEIVE THE FORM.
      • TO BE ABLE TO PERCEIVE THE FORM, ONE NEEDS TO KNOW THE CONSTUCTION.
      • FOR KNOWING THE CONSTRUCTION ONE NEEDS TO HAVE A FEEL FOR MATERIALS.
      • ALSO SURFACE TEXTURE , PATTERN , COLOUR.
      • AS ALSO SCALE AND PROPORTION.
      • AND FINALLY , MOST IMPORTANTLY – THE LIGHT.
      • UNIVERSE AND EVOLUTION OF MAN / NATURE / JOY.
      • CONCEPT OF SHELTER – PHYSICAL NEED BUT ABOVE THAT PSYCOLOGICAL REQUIREMENT – IT IS A DESIRE OF HUMAN BEING.
      • SPACE – CONCEPT EMERGES SINCE THE INCEPTION IN MOTHERS WOMB, INFANT’S COMING OUT IN THE WORLD, INTRODUCTION TO THE LIGHT, SPACE IN COVERED CRADLE, WHEN UNCOVERED DISTANT SPACE. THEN MAKING OUT OWN SPACE - CHILDREN PLAY BHATUKALI. SPACE APPROPRIATENESS OF SPACE , JUST ENOUGH SPACE FOR EFFECTIVE FUNCTIONINIG OF HUMAN BEING / JOY. ARCHITECT DESIGNS – CONCEIVES SUCH SPACES.
      • EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESSIONS (EXE.1)
      • ARCHITECTURE IS ALSO EXPERIENCE.
      • SENSES , SENSITIVITY SENSATIONS AND CREATIVITY. (EXE. 2)
      • VISUAL ARTS AND PERFORMING ARTS – SPACE IS THE ESSENSE.
      • DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE AND OTHER ARTS.
      • SURFACE STUDIES – DOT TO LINE TO PLANE (SURFACE) TO SHAPE TO FORM TO SPACE
      • LINES – EXPRESS . EVERY LINE HAS ITS OWN TALE TO TELL YOU. MOVEMENT OF HAND AND LINE. MOTIVATION OF LINE - EMERGING – TEXTURE AND PATTERNS. (EXE. 3)
      • BINDU, SHUNYA, DOT – HINDU PHYLOSOPHY, LINE EXPRESSIONS (EXE. 4)
      • COLLECTION OF MATERIALS, THEIR COLOURS , TEXTURES, PATTARNS. UNDERSTANDING MATERIALS, THEIR PROPERTIES , QUALITIES.
      • VISUAL AND TACTILE ASPECTS OF VARIOUS MATERIALS TO BE STUDIED AND ARRANGED TO STUDY VARIOUS COMBINATIONS WITH THE EXTENT OF THEIR SHAPES, SIZES COLOUR, TEXTURE AND PATTERNS – AND PLACEMENT SIDE BY SIDE TO CREATE INTERESTING SITUATIONS (EXE.5) INCLUDING THEIR TACTILE SENSATIONS.
      • CREATIVE ACTIVITY BEGINS WHEN A TENSION IS CREATED BY INTRODUCING A MARK ON A BLANK SURFACE WITH DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS. COUNTER TENSIONS, MOVEMENTS – TO CREATE MORE AND MORE INTERESTING SITUATIONS.
      • TOTAL FORM OF ARRANGEMENT GETS ENLIVED INFACT THAT IS OUR INTENTION TO FORM A HARMONIOUS, UNIFIED AND EXISTING WHOLE.
      • FOCAL POINT – DARSHAN AND WORSHIP ARE TWO ESSENTIAL ASPECTS OF OUR RELIGIOUS LIFE IN INDIA.
      • IDEA OF FOCAL POINT OF SCULPTURE, PAINTING , PHOTOGRAPH OR ANY VISUAL ART.
      • TOPIC EXERCISE BRIEF AND MECHANISM –
      • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      • EXE.NO. 1 –
      • VISITING A PLACE AND MEETING A PERSONALITY.
      • NARRATE YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE ON A FULLSCAPE PAPER.
      • EXE. NO. 2 –
      • IMAGINE THE EXPERIENCE AND NARRATE THE SAME ON FULLSCAPE PAPER.
      • TOPIC TEXT -- . EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESSIONS
      • PREAMBLE :
      • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      • CREATIVE ACTIVITY BEGINS WHEN TENSION IS CREATED BY INTRODUCING A MARK OR AN ACT IN THE OPEN – SPACE (EMPTY SURFACE)
      • THEN WE ADD NEWER MARKS WITH DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS TO CREATE COUNTER TENSIONS, MOVEMENTS TO CREATE MORE AND MORE INTERESTING SITUATIONS.
      • FINALLY IT IS OUR INTENTION WHICH ENLIVES THE TOTAL FORM OF ORGANISATION.
      • PERHAPS IT SHOULD FORM A HARMONIOUS, UNIFIED AND EXCITING –INTERESTING – WHOLE.
      • I HAVE EXPLAINED SPACE
      • SPACE IS THE ESSENCE OF ARCHITECTURE , IN FACT ARCHITECTURE IS
      • “ SPACE”
      • I HAVE EXPLAINED THE CONCEPT OF SPACE – APPROPRIATE SPACE
      • FINALLY THE QUALITY OF SPACE AND THAT
      • ARCHITECT CONCIEVES / DESIGNS SPACES – FOR HUMAN FUNCTIONS ,
      • FOR THE EFFECTIVE FUNCTIONING OF HUMAN BEING SO THAT HE ENJOYES HIS
      • WORK.
      • HIS MIND, BRAIN, CAPACITY TO CONCEPTUALISE FIVE SENSES AND FIVE BODY
      • ORGANS TO ACT – ALL FACULTIES ARE INSPIRED TO ACT.
      • I HAVE ALSO TRIED TO EMPHASIZE THAT MAN’S IDEA OF CREATING SHELTER – IS
      • NOT ONLY THE OUTCOME OF NEED (NOT ONLY NEED-BASED),
      • BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY (IT WAS) AND IT IS THE DESIRE OF MAN TO BE IN
      • APPROPRIATE SPACE –
      • “ A QUALITY OF SPACE”
      • WHERE ALL FACULTIES CAN GET EVOKED AS THEY CAN NEGOTIATE WITH THE
      • SPACE ABOVE AND AROUND.
      • WE DISCUSSED WITH STUDENTS ABOUT WORKING OUT SPACE – WITH THE HELP OF –
      • FORM
      • STRUCTURE
      • CONSTRUCTION
      • MATERIALS
      • SURFACES – COLOURS , TEXTURES , PATTERN
      • SCALE AND PROPORTION
      • AND FINALLY AND THE MOST IMPORTANTLY ,
      • THE LIGHT
      • THE EMPHASIS IS ON ORGANISATION OF THESE ASPECTS TO ENHANCE THE
      • QUALITY OF “SPACE”
    • EYE + MIND + BRAIN + SENSES + ORGANS
      • IT WAS EXPLAINED TO THE STUDENTS THAT TEACHERS WOULD DISCUSS WITH YOU TIME TO TIME AND WITH INTENSE INTERACTION DRIVE YOU TO THE INTERESTING, MORE AND MORE INTERESTING SITUATIONS TO ARRIVE AT. THEY WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO REFINE YOUR IDEA BUT WOULD NOT GIVE DIRECT SOLUTION.
      • SO WITH THIS UNDERSTANDING , WE ENTERED INTO THE STUDIES OF BASIC DESIGN.
      • ‘ SPACE’ BEING THE MAIN CONCEPT BEHIND ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION, IN CARRING OUT ‘BD’ PROCESS, THE THEME IS --
      • ‘ LIFE AND SPACE ’
      • WE ALSO EXPLAINED ABOUT “ BASIC DESIGN” AND THAT IT DEALS WITH THE VISUAL AND INTELLECTUAL ASPECTS OF ‘DESIGN’. ALSO EXPLAINED THE CONCEPT , COMPLETE METHODOLOGY , MECHANISM OF CONDUCTING BD IN STUDIO.
      • ALSO UNFOLDED THE IDEA OF TEACHING AND LEARNING THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF EXERCISES i.e. WITH DIRECT EXPERIENCE EXPLORING THE ‘ESSENCE’ OF THE TOPIC i.e. VISUAL ASPECTS.
      • ALL THESE PROCESSES THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH ON THEIR OWN – WORK WITH HAND , EXPERIMENT , EXPLORE AND GENERATE THEIR OWN UNDERSTANDING , THEREBY ATTITUDE WITH THE HELP OF COMPLETE SENSE OF PERCEPTION.
      • SURFACES DO AFFECT / INFLUENCE SPACE , SO THEY NEED TO BE APPROPRIATLY WORK OUT TO ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF SPACE.
      • NATURE HAS GIFTED MAN – A MIND , BRAIN, CAPACITY TO CONCEPTUALIZE , ALSO FIVE SENSES , FIVE BODY ORGANS TO ACT.
      • SO MAN REFUSED TO WALK ON FOUR LEGS , INSTEAD HE USED TWO OF HIS LEGS AS HANDS.
      • HIS OWN EXPERIENCE UNFOLDED VARIOUS IDEAS OF LIVING. HE SAW, LOOKED, OBSERVED, EXPLORED, EXPERIMENTED, TRIED TO KNOW , UNDERSTAND AND DEVELOPED – THAT’S HOW MAN PROGRESSED.
      • WHATEVER HE EXPERIENCED ,HE TRIED TO EXPRESS. THAT IS HOW VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS EMERGED AND DEVELOPED.
      • THE FIRST TOPIC TAKEN IS
      • ‘ EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESSION’
      • HOW DOT, LINE AND THEIR VARIETY OF VERSIONS ( DRAWINGS) CREATE SEVERAL EXPRESSIONS AND HOW EVERY LINE (WHETHER STRAIGHT , CURVED, HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL, ZIGZAG ETC.) HAS IT’S OWN TALE TO TELL.
      • THIS KIND OF EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESSIONS – AWAKEN THE SENSES AND THE KIND OF SENSITIVITY AND THEREBY – UNDERSTANDING , AND APPROPRIATE VOCABULARY – ARE DEVELOPED BY THE STUDENTS.
      • ORIGINES OF FIRST HAND WRITTEN EXPRESSION ( COMMUNICATION) OF MAN LIES IN – DOT , POINT.
      • DOT , POINT , BINDI -- a. IN INDIAN PHYLOSOPHY, BINDI – SHOONYA HAS
      • SPECIAL SIGNIFICANCE.
      • b. IT MEANS NOTHING AND EVERTHING.
      • c. THE ENERGY EMERGES FROM SHOONYA AND
      • DIMINISHES THEREIN.
      • d. A MIND BLOWING CONCEPT SIMILAR TO BLACK HOLE
      • OF CONTEMPARARY – ASTRO – PHYSICS.
      • SO,
      • MAN EXPRESSES, COMMUNICATES THROUGH
      • GESTURES – BODY LANGUAGE
      • FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
      • VOCAL – SOUND
      • VOCABULARY / UTTERENCE / LANGUAGE
      • WORDS / ALPHABETS / SCRIPT
      • DRAWING 2-D / MODEL 3-D
      • ELECTRONIC MEDIA
      • SATTELITE COMMUNICATION
      • LINE
      • DOT DEVELOPES INTO LINE
      • MINIMUM DISTANCE BETWEEN ANY TWO POINTS JOINED = LINE
      • STRAIGHT ZIG-ZAG CONTINUOUS
      • HORIZONTAL LONG PARALLEL
      • VERTICAL SHORT PERPENDICULAR
      • ANGULAR THICK OBLIGUITY
      • CURVED THIN DEPTH
      • DOT – THICK , THIN , LIGHT , WEIGHTY , CONTENTMENT TO ITSELF , INDICATES NO GROWTH , CONCENTRATION.
      • WHEN OUR SIGHT IS TRAVELLING IN VOIDS , IT ACTUALLY JUMPS
      • FROM ONE DOT TO OTHER DOT.
      • OUR EYES FEEL MORE RELAXED , RELEAVED IN VOID – EMPTYNESS

      • --------------------------
    •  
      • LINES ARE EXPRESSIVE – WHETHER STRAIGHT , CURVED , THICK , THIN , THEY ALL HAVE THEIR OWN TALES.
      • EACH EXPRESSION OF LINE VARIES ACCORDING TO ITS CREATORS EMOTIONS.
      • LINES EQUISPACED RESULT IN MONOTONY.
      • CHANGE IN THE SPACING CREATES INTEREST.
      • FLOWING LINE – THERE EMERGES MOVEMENT , RHYTM , ALSO IT CRATES SENSE OF ‘VOLUME’ AND ‘EXPANCE’.
      • FLOW ALSO CREATES TEXTURE.
      • OBLIGUITY OF LINES AND PLANES – EFFECT OF DEPTH.
      • GRADED DECREASE IN SPACES BETWEEN LINES ADDS TO THE EFFECT OF
      • ‘ DEPTH’
      • PROMINENT
      • NOT VERY PROMINENT
      • LINE TRANSFORMATION INTO SHAPE
      • STATIC / DYNAMIC ----------
      • DOT LINE PLANE PATTERN RHYTHM FORM
    •  
    • STATIC LINES, DOTS, SHAPES CAN BE MOTIVATED BY DISLOCATING , SHIFTING AND ROTATING THEM. THE IDEA OF GROWTH STARTS WHERE CONTINUOUS LINE BEGINS. AS IT PROCEEDS TO OCCUPY SPACE , RELATIVE FORMS AND SENSE OF GROWTH ARE DEVELOPED.
      • LINES CREATE -- DEPTH , REPETATION , RHYTHM , PATTERN , MOVEMENT ,
      • FLOW AND CONFUSION.
      • IMPORTANT RENDERING OF VARIETY OF LINES RESULT IN TEXTURE ,PATTERN , VOLUME , EXPANCE.
      • STATIC DOTS , LINES , SHAPES CAN BE MOTIVATED BY DISLOCATING, SHIFTING , ROTATING , MOVEMENTS.
      • DOT , LINE – OCCUPIES SPACE / SURFACE.
      • -- RELATED FORMS ARE DEVELOPED.
      • -- SENSE OF GROWTH.
      • DOT ACTIVATES SURFACE / SPACE.
      • BLACK LINES , WHITE BACKGROUND AT EVEN DISTANCE
      • CREATES GREY TONE.
      • VARIETY OF TONES CAN BE ACHIEVED BY CHANGING THE
      • PROPORTION OF BLACK WITH CHANGE IN DISTANCE
      • (SPACING) BETWEEN LINES.
      • PERCEIVING SURFACE
      • ONE CAN RELATE THE SMALLER SQUARE TO THE OUTER
      • FRAME OF THE SURFACE AND VISUALLY DIVIDE THE
      • SURFACE. THE DEVISIONS ARE IN RELATION WITH EACH
      • OTHER.
      • ON THE OTHER HAND , SAME SQUARE JOINED DIAGONALLY
      • TO THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE SQUARE FRAME , GIVES
      • THE FEELING OF VOLUME.
      • SMALLER SQUARE PULLS VOLUME – BACKWARD
      • BIGGER SQUARE PULLS VOLUME – FORWARD
      • EMPTY SPACE – SURFACE DOES NOT RESTRICT THE
      • ATTENTION TO A PERTICULAR POINT OR FIGURE.
      • PLACEMENT OF FIGURE OR MARK ANYWHERE (IN THE
      • FRAME) WITHIN SURFACE ATTRACTS THE ATTENTION AND
      • PROVOKES EYE – MOVEMENT AROUND THE MARK.
      • IT ACTIVATES SPACE – SURFACE
      • ( ENERGY FIELD GETS CREATED)
    • ACTIVATION OF SPACE – BLANK SPACE
    • A DOT ACTIVATES SPACE & BECOMES A FOCUS OR ATTENTION
    • ONE MORE SIMILAR DOT TENSION IS CREATED
    • ONE MORE DOT – LIGHTER / COLOURED / TEXTURED TENSION EASES DIRECTS THE MOVEMENT OF EYE EYE MOVES FROM BIGGER TO SMALLER
    • BLANK SPACE / EMPTY SPACE DOES NOT RESTRICT THE ATTENTION AS SOON AS FIGURE IS PLACED IT ATTRACTS ATTENTION / PROVOKES EYE MOVEMENT PERCEIVING SPACE SQUARE WITH FIGURE RELATED WITHIN HORIZONTAL VERTICAL LINES TO THE OUTER FRAME- DIVISION OF SPACE PERCIEVED AS 2D IF FIGURE IS RELATED TO CORNERS WITH DIAGONAL LINES – PERCIEVED WITH 3D OBSERVE FEELING OF PULL OF VOLUME IN SPACE
    • HAND MOVEMENT PENCIL STROKES – BALL & SOCKET JOINT
    •  
    • MOTIVATION OF LINE
    • POINT / LINE / PLANE A PATTERN OF POINTS PATTERN OF LINES PATTERN OF PLANES
    • OBLIQUITY OF LINES AND PLANES HELPS TO CREATE EFFECT OF DEPTH
    • GRADED DECREASE IN SPACE IN BETWEEN LINES ADDS TO THE EFFECT OF DEPTH
    • BRIGHTNESS AND INTENSITY BRINGS THE FORM CLOSER TO US AND CONSEQUENTLY CREATES DEPTH
    • SCALE OF PROPORTIONS BROAD TO NARROW IN PARALLEL AND OPPOSITE PROCESSION VERTICAL , PARALLEL LINES AS CONTRAST IN PROPORTION
    •  
    •  
    • BLACK LINES , WHITE BACKGROUND AT EVEN DISTANCES CREATE A GREY TONE. VARIETY OF TONE CAN BE ACHIEVED BY CHANGING THE PROPORTION OF BLACK WITH CHANGES OF DISTANCE BETWEEN THEM.
    •  
    • VERTICAL HORIZONTAL EMPHASIS DYNAMIC DIRECTIONAL SUBDIVISIONAL TO FORM MORE COMPLEX TRIANGULAR GRID
    • VARIATIONS IN SIMPLE GRID TEND TO MAKE COMPOSITIONS MORE DYNAMIC GRID WITH MORE COMPLEX AREAS A SHIFT OR DROP GRID, SHIFTING ALTERNATIVE RAWS UP OR DOWN OR SIDE TO SIDE
    • STUDIES IN -- BASIC DESIGN CONCEPTUALISED AND CARRIED OUT BY -- PROF. ARUN OGALE TOPIC – FOCAL POINT AND AXIS COMPILED AND PRODUCED BY – AR. SUVARNA VAZE BASIC DESIGN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CELL
      • TOPIC TEXT
      • TOPIC EXERCISE BRIEF
      • TOPIC EXCERCISE MECHANISM
      • STUDENTS WORK
    • WHEN YOU VISIT THE TEMPLE AND LOOK AT THE IDOL / DAITY, EXACTLY WHERE YOUR EYES FIRST ROLL OR REST ?
      • THIS IS A VERY NORMAL COMMON EXPERIENCE. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE SCULPTURE , THIS HAPPENS BECAUSE IN REALITY , THE LIFE IN OUR BODY IS MORE LIVELY – SEEN – FELT ONLY THROUGH EYES. WE ALWAYS TRY TO RE-EXPERIENCE AND COMPARE “ MATTER “ WITH LIVELY LIFE.
      • WE IMITATE OUR OWN LIFE AND NATURE WHEN WE PLAY WITH OUR HAND WITH “MATTER”.
      • WE SEE ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE IN THE MATTER WHEN WE TRY AND VISUALISE “MATTER”.
      • BECAUSE LIFE IS VITAL TO US , WHEN WE TRY BEYOND ‘LIFE’ , THERE EMERGES ABSTRACTION BUT THERE AGAIN WE TRY TO PUT LIFE IN IT – FOR TRANSFORMING INTO MEANINGFUL ABSTRACTION.
      • THAT IS THE VITAL ENERGY FOR US TO BE ABLE TO EXIST.
      • THIS ENERGY ENERGISES OUR MIND , BRAIN , 5 SENSES , 5 BODY ORGANS – AS WE HAVE DISCUSSED.
      • WE SEE THIS ENERGY VISUALLY ONLY THROUGH OUR EYES.
      • SO LOOKING OF EYES IS A FIRST RELIEF FOR HUMAN MIND.
      • IN FACT HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS ARE DEVELOPED WITH THE HELP OF THIS ENERGY FIELD ON OUR FACE – EYES.
      • THE BEGINNING HAPPENS WHEN THE CHILD LOOKS INTO MOTHERS EYES WITH TREMENDOUS SENSE OF SAFTY / SECURITY, ASSURANCE AND FINALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE FAITH – (CONFIDENCE)
      • SUCH IS THE VITAL IMPULSE OF THIS – OUR FACIAL ENERGY FIELDS.
      • THIS ENERGY FIELD HAS TREMENDOUS SPECTRUM OF “EXPRESSION”.
      • CALM IMPULSE SUSPISIAN SUFFERENCE
      • AAWESH VIKAR- VILASIT PAIN
      • ACTIVE JEALOUS DULL/ UNPLESANT
      • SENSUALITY JOY ANGER FEAR, UNHAPPY
      • LOVE – THE FINAL ENTITY IN LIFE
      • YOU MUST HAVE NOTICED ALL THESE “EMOTIONS” , FEELINGS, TEY APPEAR IN YOUR EYES WITHOUT ANY EFFECTS. WHEN THE BODY INCLUDING MIND GETS CHARGED DUE TO SOME EXTRA ORDINARY SITUATION AND ALL OF A SUDDEN FEELINGS GET REFLECTED IN OUR EYES.
      • IT IS NATURAL PHENOMENON THAT SOME CHEMICALS WHICH ARE ALSO IN OUR BODY , GET ACTIVATED AND PROJECT A PERTICULAR FEELING IN OUR EYES.
      • APART FROM EYES “BHAV” ,”MUDRA”, EVEN BODY LANGUAGE , EAR LOBE, HAIRS , SHIVERING OF BODY, REDDISH / BLUISH SKIN.
      • THESE ARE THE SUB-ENERGY FIELDS – THEY EMERGE DEPENDING UPON HOW SENSITIVE ONE IS.
      • THE WHOLE BODY RESPONDS , REACTS TO CREATE SUCH EXPRESSION
      • THE WHOLE BODY RESPONDS , REACTS TO CREATE SUCH EXPRESSION.
      • THIS PSYCOLOGICAL / NATURAL PHENOMENON WITHIN OUR BODY ALSO INSPIRES MAN WHEN HE IS CHARGED WITH HIS OWN ENVIRONMENT , THAT’S HOW THE DRAWING , PAINTING , DANCE , MUSIC – SUCH VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS COULD FINALLY MAKE THEIR WAY IN HUMAN LIFE.
      • SO IT MEANS WE AGAIN COME BACK TO –
      • EXPERIENCE
      • EXPRESSION
      • PERCEPTION – IDEA OF COMPLETE PERCEPTION
      • EYE – MIND – BRAIN – 5 SENSES – 5 BODY ORGANS .
      • ‘ KNOWLEDGE’ , ‘SCIENCE ’ --
      • THE POINT IS EVERY PIECE OF ART IS EXPRESSION OF AN ARTIST DEPENDING UPON THE EXPERIENCE OF AN ARTIST , ALSO LIKE CHANDIGADH ,IMAGINE THE EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESS.
      • EVERY PIECE OF ART IS TO BE PERCIEVED NOT ONLY WITH EYE , BUT WITH MIND AND BRAIN.
      • IN INDIA ‘ PERCEPTION ’ IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF OUR CULTURE AND THEREBY “DARSHAN ” AND “WORSHIP” ARE TWO ESSENTIAL ASPECTS OF OUR RELIGIOUS LIFE.
      • MAINLY DARSHAN INVOLVES AN EXCHANGE BETWEEN THE DAITY AND THE WORSHIPER.
      • QUALITY OF DARSHAN AGAIN DEPENDS ON FAITH OR TRANSPERANCY OF WOSHIPERS VISION / PERCEPTION.
      • KNOLEDGE , SCIENCE – i.e. WELL DEVELOPED EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES COULD BE SEEN REFLECTED IN PLANNING OF NALANDA , TAKSHSHEELA.
      • OUR LATE PRIME MINISTER PANDIT NEHRU , A VISIONARY WANTED SOME DIRECTION TO THE ARCHITECTURE IN INDEPENDENT INDIA. HE WANTED NEW HOPE , ASPIRATIONS , OF THE INDEPENDENT PEOPLE TO BE REFLECTED IN ARCHITECTURE. WE WERE UNDER MOUGHAL FOR ABOUT 500 YEARS AND UNDER BRITISH RULE FOR 150 YEARS . SO NEW EXPERIENCE FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE , AND OF THE PEOPLE. SO PANDITJI CALLED C0RBUSIER FOR PLANNING CHANDIGADH.
      • IN SOME PAINTINGS OVERALL PERFORMANCE OF EACH OF THE ELEMENTS BECOMES – PAINTINGS IN TOTALITY LIKE GURENICA – PICASSO‘S FAMOUS PAINTING – GREATEST TRAGIC PAINTING – A HORRIBLE MASSACARE BY GERMAN BOMBERS – AT SMALL TOWN GURENICA . SEE THE WAY HE EXPRESSES -- MOST POWERFUL PICTORIAL CREATION – REVOLT / CRY / BRUITALITY / BLIND VIOLANCE / DARKNESS / DEATH OF CHILDREN / MOTHERS CRY – AND WHAT NOT THAT TOO ONLY BLACK AND WHITE AND GREY TONES. THE WHOLE PAINTING ITSELF IS AN ENERGY FIELD.
      • BUT FOR THE SUCCESSFUL DARSHAN i.e. VISUAL COMMUNICATION – THE DAITY IS CLEANED , PAINTED , ORNAMENTED , CLOTHED , PERFUMED , FLOWERED.
      • FOR THIS PRIVILEGED MOVEMENT OF PERCEPTION i.e. DARSHAN – A DIVINE BEAUTY OR ATMOSPHERE IS CREATED.
      • SIMILARLY IN PAINTING / PHOTOGRAPH , THE ARTIST EXPRESSES A SITUATION ALSO IN ENVIRONMENT, IN MIND = FEELING = EMOTIONS AND IN HIS VISUALS HE FOCUSES ON CERTAIN ELEMENTS OR FEW ELEMENTS i.e. HOW HE CREATES SOME ART FROM ENERGY FIELDS.
      • ENERGY FIELD MEANS LIKE THE CENTRAL COURTYARD IN OUR COLLEGE BUILDING.
      • WATCH BANDHANI BY VIMAL ROY.
      • IT COULD BE ALSO SAID THAT FINALLY COMPOSITION IS THE RESULT OF THE IMPLIED INTERACTION BETWEEN THE VIEWER AND VISUAL PRODUCER.
      • i.e. THE AREA OF EMPHASIS WITHIN THE FRAME OR OUTSIDE THE COMPOSITION.
      • SO ,
      • HOW TO APPRICIATE –
      • THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN WHEN NATURE CREATES . BECAUSE THE CREATOR
      • EXISTS IN ITS OWN CREATION , BUT MAN CANNOT EXIST IN HIS OWN
      • CREATION, SO WE HAVE TO WORK OUT THE APPRECIATION.
      • SO THE EXERCISE IS VERY SIMPLE.
      • TAKE PICTURES , LOOK , SEE , OBSERVE AND FIND OUT THE ENERGY FIELDS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE ENERGY FIELD IN THE PICTURE FRAME
      • VISUAL PRODUCER – PAINTER , DANCER ORGANISES VISUAL ELEMENTS ARE TO BE ORGANISED TO MAKE THEM INLLEGIBLE ‘ SUBODH’ TO THE VIEWER OR TO CARRY MESSAGE THAT IS TO COMMUNICATE.
      • EVERY EXPRESSION IS DEPENDING ON CREATORS FEELING ‘ BHAVANA’ (BHAVANA , VIVASHATA, EMOTION – AFFECTED)
      • MAJOR AXIS AND MINOR AXIS –
      • VISUAL ELEMENTS PLACED ALONG WITH THE AXIS ARE MORE NOTICED.IN CASE OF ARCHITECTURE AND SCULPTURE ,THE MAJOR AND MINOR AXIS MAY AT FIRST SEEM DIFFICULT TO FIND.

      • ULTIMATELY PERCEPTION OF VISUAL PRODUCT.
      • AXIS –
      • IN MAKING A VISUAL PRODUCT , VISUAL ELEMENTS ARE TO BE ORGANISED TO MAKE THEM INTELLIGIBLE TO YHE VIEWER OR TO CARRY THE MESSAGE THAT IS TO BE COMMUNICATED.
      • EACH VIEWER ALSO ORGANISES VISUAL ELEMENTS TO RECEIVE THE MESSAGE OF THE VISUAL PRODUCT.
      • THIS ORGANISATION IS THE COMPOSITION OF THE VISUAL PRODUCT.
      • COMPOSITION IS NOT FIXED OR STATIC SITUATION.
      • A VISUAL PRODUCER ORGANISES VISUAL ELEMENTS ACCORDING TO PAST PERCEPTIONS , EXPERIENCES AND THE CULTURE.
      • THE PRODUCER AND THE VIEWER SHARE IN THE CREATION OF A COMPOSITION AND IT IS MUTUAL ACT OF COMMUNICATION.
      • DO NOT PRESUME THAT EVERYONE SEES A VISUAL PRODUCT THE SAME WAY.
      • THE COMPOSITION IS THE RESULT OF THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE VIEWER AND THE VISUAL PRODUCT.
      • AREAS OF EMPHASIS
      • MAJOR AND MINOR AXES – VISTUAL ELEMENTS PLACED ALONGWITH AXES ARE MORE NOTICED.
      • AN AXIS IS IMPLIED STRAIGHT LINE AROUND WHICH SHAPES MAY SEEM TO ROTATE.
      • A FIGURE OR SHAPE MAY BE SYMMETRICAL AROUND AXIS. AN AXIS ALSO BE STRAIGHT LINE IMPLIED BY DIRECTION , MOTION, GROWTH OR EXTENSION.
      • WHEN A PERSON BENDS AND LOOKS DOWN FROM AN ERECT POSTURE , THE MAJOR AXIS RUNS THROUGH THE CENTRE OF THE BODY , FROM THE TOP OF THE HEAD TO THE SPACE IN BETWEEN THE FEET.
      • THIS IMPLIED LINE DEFINES THE LINE OF ROTATION , THE AXIS OF SYMMETRY, AND YHE LINE OF THE GROWTH OF THE BODY.
      • STRECHING ARMS OUTWARD FROM SHOULDER DEFINES THE MINOR AXIS OF THE BODY.
      • HIPS ARE LESSER MINOR AXIS.
      • BENDING OR STOPPING – CREATES NEW AXIS IN THE BODY. IN FACT EACH NEW CHANGE IN ORIENTATION AND POSITION CREATES NEW SETS OF AXIS.
      • IN CASE OF ARCHITECTURE AND SCULPTURE , THE MAJOR AND MINOR AXIS MAY AT FIRST SEEM DIFFICULT TO FIND. THE PERCEPTION OF BUILDINGS AND SCULPTURES CHANGES AS THEY ARE SEEN FROM THE DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW. AS SUCH THEIR AXES ARE DEPENDING ON ANGLE OF THE VIEWER.
      • THE APPROPRIATE VISUAL CENTRE OF ANY VISUAL IS THE AREA OF EMPHASIS WITHIN THE COMPOSITION. ANY VISUAL ELEMENT PLACED AT THE CENTRE IS EMPHASISED BECAUSE OF THAT PLACEMENT.
      • NON RECTANGULAR / SQUARE COMPOSITIONS ALSO HAVE APPROXIMATE CENTRES DEFINED BY INTERSECTION OF MAJOR AND MINOR AXIS.
    • MAJOR AXIS WITHIN VIRTUAL SPACE MINOR AXIS
    • MAJOR AXIS WITHIN VIRTUAL SPACE MINOR AXIS
    • MAJOR AXIS WITHIN VIRTUAL SPACE MINOR AXIS
    • MAJOR AXIS WITHIN FIELD MINOR AXIS WITHIN FIELD APPROXIMATE FIELD BOUNDRIES

      • INTUITION – EXPERIENCE AND ANALYSIS
      • TO DESIGN IS TO PLAN USING INTUTION EXPERIENCE AND ANALYSIS.
      • WE TAKE THINGS APART TO SEE HOW THEY WORK AND ONCE WE UNDERSTAND THEM ( THE PARTS ) REASSEMBLE THEM INTO NEW COMBINATIONS.
      • FOR EXPERIENCE WE CAN LOOK AT OTHER THINGS AND UNDERSTAND HOW THEY ARE PUT TOGETHER.
      • WE CAN SEEK UNIVERSAL QUANTITIES OF THE PARTS THAT HELP US MAKE DECISIONS.
      • TAN CAN BE USED TO ABRTACT FIGURES OF HUMAN , ANIMAL OR IN ANIMATE OBJECTS TO CONVEY THE MESSAGE.
      • THIS IS ANALOGUS TO ARRANGING THE PARTS OF THE INTERIOR .
      • TO EXPRESS A MOOD OR FEELING , INTIMACY, DIGNITY , RELAXATION.
      • ANOTHER WAY OF USING TANS IS -- TO EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES OF COMPOSING A PERTICULAR GEOMETRIC CONFIGURATION WITH THE 7 PIECES OF THE PUZZLE.
      • THIS IS LIKE FITTING THE PARTS OF THE DESIGN INTO A GIVEN SPACE.
      • THIRD USE OF TANS IS DESIGN RESEARCH.
      • WE SEEK OUT THE UNIVERSAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ELEMENTS AND FROM THESE ABSTRACTS GENERAL PRICIPLES –
      • LIKE – WE FIND THAT ALL THE GIVEN FIGURES , THE ONES THAT ENCLOSES MOST AREA WITH THE LEAST PERIMETER LENGTHIS A “ SQUARE”.
      • -- ABSTRACT FIGURES OF PEOPLE , ANIMALS , OBJECTS.
      • -- GEOMETRIC CONFIGURATIONS.
      • -- UNIVERSAL CHARACTERISTICS – GENERAL PRINCIPLE.
      • INTUITION , EXPERIENCE , ANALYSIS -- SOME OF EACH IS USED AT EACH STAGE IN SPEAKING AND FINDING THE SOLUTIONS.
      • CAN BE USED IN THE PROCESS OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN – AS BUBBLE DIAGRAM.
      • THIS CHINESE PUZZLE IS SUCCESSFUL AS VISUAL PUZZLE DUE TO PROXAMITY.
      • IT TENDS TO INCREASE THE POWERS OF OBSEVATION BY DISCOVERING THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN ‘ ABSTRACT , GEOMETRIC AND NATURAL FORMS’.
      • THIS PROCESS HELPS YOU TO COMPREHEND ABSTRACTION WHICH IS ESSENTIAL IN THE STUDY OF “ VISUAL SYMBOLS”.

      • IT CAN BE ACHIEVED TROUGH MAKING THE FORMAL COMPONANTS SUBSERVE A UNIFIED DESIGN CONCEPT . UNITY CAN BE ACHIEVED BY SIMPLEST METHODS OR WITH COMPLEXITIES.
      • SIMPLEST – MAY CONSIDERABLY REDUCE OUR INTEREST.
      • COMPLEX – IT MAY BE SENSE OF DISCOVERY WHICH WOULD HOLD OUR ATTENTION MUCH LONGER.
      • REPETITION –
      • IDENTICAL ELEMENTS ARE REPEATED AT REGULAR INTERVLS , CREATES REGULAR RYTHAM BY PROVIDING REPETITION OF SAME VISUAL HAPPENING.

      • IT IS REGULATED DECREASE OR INCREASE OF THE VARIABLE SUCH AS SHAPE, SIZE, COLOUR AND TONE. IT IS ASCENDING OR DECENDING ORDER WHICH ADDS TO THE RHYTHM.
      • EMPHASIS AND SUBORDINATION –
      • IN THE PICTORIAL BALANCE, THERE HAS TO BE AN EMPHASIS OR FOCUS. THIS EMPHASIS BECOMES THE POINT OF ENTRY WHERE EITHER THE MOVEMENT BEGINS OR ENDS.
      • PROPORTION –
      • IT IS THE ESTABLISHED RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SIZE AND SHAPE IN RELATION TO THE SPACE INVOLVED IN THE WORK.
      • HARMONY –
      • IT IS THE HARMONIOUS CO EXISTANCE OF THE VISUAL ELEMENTS , WHERE NONE OF THEM ARE ALLOWED TO DISTURB AND DOMINATE.
      • BALANCE –
      • IT IS THE EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF VISUAL WEIGHT IN TERMS OF QUALITY AND QUANTITY.
      • THIS CAN BE SYMMETRICAL (FORMAL)

      • NORMALLY GROUPING IS AXIAL.
      • CONCEPT MAY BE CALLED AS SYMMETRY.
      • GROUPING BY SIMPLICITY. IN THIS CASE, THE SIMPLEST PROCESS IS TO GROUP EACH SET OF FOUR LINES AND TO CONSIDER THEM AS SQUARES. THIS MAY ALSO CALLED CLOSURE.
      • SUM OF PARTS –
      • SYMMETRY –
      • SYMMETRY PPERATES BOTH AS GROUPING CONCEPT AND AS AN STRUCTURAL CONCEPT.
      • A STRUCTURAL CONCEPT ORGANISES ELEMENTS ACCORDING TO LOGICAL RULES , IN THIS CASE SYMMETRY RULES.
      • IN SYMMETRY PATTERN ELEMENTS ARE DIVIDED AND / OR REPEATED SYSTEMATICALLY , MATHEMATICALLY OR GEOMETRICALLY.

      • AWAKENING IN THE MORNING , A SIMPLE USUAL ACT OF OURS.
      • WE REVEALED SEQUETIALLY –
      • -- THAT WE FIRST OPEN OUR EYES.
      • -- WE SEE MANY THINGS ONCE WE OPEN EYES.
      • -- BUT SOME ONE SAID “NO” -- BEFORE WE SEE THINGS AROUND ,
      • THE LIGHT ENTERS OUR EYES AND THEN ONLY WE CAN SEE.
      • VERY TRUE , THAT WITHOUT LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE.
      • SOMEONE FURTHER HASTILY ADDED THAT THE LIGHT ACTUALLY FALLS ON
      • SOME OBJECT AND THEN ENTERS OUR EYES.
      • SOMEBODY EXCLAIMED THAT IS THE REFLECTED LIGHT.
      • ONE STUDENT NARRATED HIS OWN EXPERIENCE THAT “ AS SOON AS WE
      • OPEN OUR EYES IN THE MORNING WE CAN’T SEE CLEARLY AS WE ARE IN
      • HALF SLEEP”.
      • SOME STUDENT REMEMBERED THAT WE NEED TO FOCUS OUR EYES
      • ( TO STARE AT ) INITIALLY , TO BE ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY.
      • SO AFTER AWAKENING IN THE MORNING ,
      • -- WE OPEN OUR EYES.
      • -- REFLECTED LIGHT ENTERS OUR EYES.
      • -- WE SIT IN THE BED. A PERSON LIKE ME TRIES TO REACH THE
      • NEARBY GLASSES.
      • -- WE FOCUS OUR EYES ON A WALL CLOCK.
      • SO WE GO THROUGH SERIES OF SIMPLE NATURAL SEQUENTIAL ACTIONS –
      • MAINLY THEY ARE SIMPLE MOTIONS.
      • SO SOMEONE SUGGESTED THAT WE NEED TO HAVE CLEAR VISION TO BE
      • ABLE TO BEGIN THE DAY.
      • SO WE STUDIED AND ANALISED YHIS EVENT OF AWAKENING IN THE MORNING
      • WE REALISED THAT THERE ARE MANY PARTICIPENTS IN THE EVENT.
      • YOU LOOK AT THE WALL CLOCK AND SUDDENLY SOMETHING STRIKES YOU
      • THAT YOU ARE LATE.
      • YOUR MIND , BRAIN , MEMORY – ALL COME TO YOUR RESCUE . YOUR EYES
      • AND YOU SUDDENLY REALISE THAT YOU ARE GETTING LATE FOR THE
      • COLLEGE.
      • SO WE SEE, WE LOOK ,WE OBSERVE , WE REALISE , SOME THINGS STRIKE –
      • AS YOUR MIND, BRAIN , MEMORY NATURALLY PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITY.
      • SO THE ANALYSIS REVEALED THAT –
      • -- SEEING IS JUST REGISTERING SURROUNDING INFORMATION.
      • -- IN OBSERVING -- MIND , BRAIN , MEMORY – PLAY IMPORTANT
      • ROLE . SO WE THINK , RESPOND , ACT DEPENDING ON INTENSITY
      • OF THE SITUATION AND OUR OWN ATTITUDE.
      • SO IN OBSERVING , ITS NOT REGISTERING INFORMATION IN THE SURROUNDS
      • BUT ALSO FURTHER ACCUMULATING , ASSSIMULATING INFORMATION IN
      • SURROUNDS AND SUBSEQUENTIALLY RESPONDING, ACTING ON IT
      • DEPENDING UPON THE ATTITUDE.
      • THIS ACCUMULATING , ASIMULATING INFORMATION IN THE SURROUNDS --
      • WHAT EFFECT THIS PROCESS HAS ON OUR MIND AND BRAIN.
      • SOMEONE SAID WE GET “AWARE” – SO IT’S AWARENESS.
      • SO I QUESTIONED INTENSELY / REPEATEDLY WHAT IS THE WORD THAT
      • EXPLAINS THE FINAL “NOTION” OF THESE SEQUENTIAL EXPERIENCES. SOME
      • SMART ONE SAID IT IS
      • “ PERCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE”
      • SO WE TRIED TO RESOLVE THAT –
      • EYE
      • OPENING OF EYE
      • LIGHT – REFLECTED LIGHT ENTERS EYES.
      • WE SEE , LOOK , FLASH – LOOK
      • WE FOCUS OUR EYES , OBSERVE
      • MIND , BRAIN , MEMORY – PARTICIPATE .
      • SOME THING STRIKES , WE REALISE , GET AWARE.
      • WE RESPOND , ACT DEPENDING UPON OUR ATTITUDE.
      • SEE – LOOK – OBSERVE – THERE IS SOME DIFFERENCE.
      • SO , VISION SUPPORTED BY THINKING OR ORGANISED THOUGH
      • = PERCEPTION
      • WE ALSO RESOLVED THAT PURPOSE OF LIGHT IS TO MAKE, AQUIRE VISUAL
      • INFORMATION IN SURROUNDS.
      • WE FURTHER EXTENDED THIS EVENT OF “AWAKENING” IN THE MORNING.
      • WHILE IN BED YOU HEAR A SOUND OF TAP WATER DRIPPING , YOU
      • SUDDENELY RREALISE THAT TAP WAS NOT TIGHTENED PROPERLY THE
      • PREVIOUS NIGHT. YOU AT ONCE JUMPED OUT OF BED, RUSHED TO TIGHTEN
      • THE TAP.
      • YOU SMELL OMLETTE FROM THE KITCHEN AND HURRIEDLY TAKE BATH, CLOTH YOURSELF AND RUSH TO THE DINING TABLE.
      • SOME STUDENT EXPLAINED THAT OUR SENSES GIVE US FURTHER INFORMATION IN SURROUNDS AND
      • EVEN OUR BODY ORGANS -- FOR ACTION WITH THE “ TACTILE SENSATION ” FEEL THE SURROUNDS AND HELP US PROCURE INFORMATION IN SURROUNDS.
      • SO COMPLETE PERCEPTION IS NOT ONLY WITH SEE , LOOK , OBSERVE BUT ALSO POSSIBLE WITH 5 SENSES AND 5 BODY ORGANS FOR AWARENESS AND RESPONSE / ACTION.
      • NOW A DAYS PERCEPTION IS ALSO EXPRESSED AS AN IDEA / THOUGHT / POLICY / SRATEGY – AS IT IS REVEALIATION FROM MIND – BRAIN i.e. INTELLIGENCE AND THAT MEANING OF PERCEPTION HAS ATTAINED THE THIRD DIMENTION OF INTERPRETATION. AS SUCH WHILE INTERPRETING THE SITUATION ( LIKE LONDON BOMB BLAST) – THE SCOTLAND YARD SAID THAT IN OUR PERCEPTION THIS KIND OF ACT TO BE INTERPRETED AS SO AND SO KIND OF TERRORISM.
      • IN MY PERCEPTION – THIS TOTAL ISSUE IS TO BE VIEWED / INTERPRETED IN SUCH AND SUCH MANNER.
      • SO PERCEPTION IS INTELLECTUAL ASSESMENT OR – VIEW.
      • SO PERCEPTION IS – EYE + LIGHT + COLOUR + SEE + OBSERVE + 5 SENSES + 5 BODY ORGANS OF ACTION , MIND , BRAIN , INTELLECTUAL.
      • ALL ABOVE POSSIBLE ONLY BECAUSE OF SPACE – i.e. ENERGY
      • WITHOUT WHICH NOTHING IS POSSIBLE.

      • A VERY UNIQUE ASPECT OF THIS CREATION IS THAT THE CREATOR ( MEANS THE ACTUAL COSMIC ENERGY ) SITS IN IT’S OWN CREATION ENLIVENING THE LIFE. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN ANY OTHER CREATION.
      • THE FIRST CONCIOUS AWARENESS OF MAN -- THE FACT THAT HIS LIFE IS NOT ONLY DEPENDENT ON 5 ELEMENTS – WATER , EARTH , AIR , FIRE AND SPACE – BUT HE WAS ALSO AWARE THAT THESE 5 CONSTITUTE HIS BODY AND CONTROL BODY FUNCTIONS.
      • UNDERSTANDABLY , IN ALL CIVILIZATIONS , AT THE MOST SOFISTICATED LEVEL AS ALSO AT THE SIMPLEST LEVEL THE RECOGNITION THAT THE PRIMAL ELEMENTS WERE PRIMARY –CRUCIAL AND INDISPENSIBLE. THIS WAS UNIVERSALY ACCEPTED THROUGHOUT THE TIME.
      • AS SUCH MYTHS OF ORIGINS OF UNIVERSE , CREATION , COSMOLOGY , COSMOGONY – HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED ON THE CONCEPT OF THESE ELEMENTS – IN EVERY CULTURE SO FAR EXISTED ON THIS PLANET.
      • ARCHITECTURE ( VASTU-KALA) ALSO EMERGED OUT OF SUCH MYTHS.
      • IT WAS ALSO REALISED BY THE MAN THAT THE LIFE – DECAY , DETERIORATION , DISTRUCTION , DEATH BUT LIFE AGAIN – IS THE BASIC CONCEPT BEHIND THE CREATION. LIFE CONTINUOUSLY , CONSTANTLY CONTINUES – IN LIFE , DEATH , AND RENEWAL.
      • THE TOTAL JOURNEY OF ‘JEEVA’ OR ‘ PRANA’ -- EMERGES FROM SPACE , MAINTAINED AND CONTINUED IN SPACE AND FINALLY MERGES INTO THE ORIGINAL SOURCE i.e. SPACE.
      • SPACE IS ENERGY. WITHOUT SPACE IT WOULD BE JUST DEAD MASS – MONOLITH
      • SO SPACE IS CRUCIAL , VITAL AND ORIGINAL CREATIVE FORCE.
      • EVOLUTION THEORIES ALSO MODERN PHYSICS – SUGGEST THAT THE ESSENCE OF ENTIRE UNIVERSE IS COSMIC ENERGY AND THAT THE UNIVERSE IS CONTROLLED BY THE PROCESS OF
      • CREATION
      • CONSERVATION
      • DESTRUCTION
      • CONCEPT OF “ TRINITY ” IN THE INDIAN PHYLOSOPHY
      • i.e
      • BRAMHA – CREATION
      • -- OUR FACULTY OF CREATIVITY , REPRODUCTIVITY
      • -- LIKE BRAMHA CREATING UNIVERSE.
      • VISHNU – SUSTAINABILITY CONSERVATION
      • -- FLOW OF VITAL ENERGY SUSTAINS US
      • -- LIKE VISHNU SUSTAINS UNIVERSE
      • MAHESH – ANNIHILATION , DESTRUCTION
      • -- OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WITHIN US FIGHTS FOREIGN BODY
      • -- LIKE SHIVA DESTROYES EVIL
      • MAN’S UNDERSTANDING OF ELEMENTS WAS ALSO CLEAR AND THIS CLARITY WAS THE RESULT OF CONTINUOUS EXPLORATION – OF THE UNKNOWN
      • (NON-MANIFESTED) . HE KNEW –
      • AIR -- IS IMPORTANT FOR BREATH AND IT’S LATERAL , SPIRAL MOVEMENT.
      • WATER – IS JUST NOT ONLY LIFE BUT ALSO PURITY AND ACCESEBILTY ,
      • -- FLUIDITY
      • FIRE – BURNING AND HEAT , BUT ALSO RISING UP , MELTING CAPACITY.
      • SPACE – IS EMPTYNESS – VOID , BUT APART FROM THIS , IT IS EVERYTHING ,
      • WITHOUT SPACE NOTHING CAN EXISTS.
      • EARTH – NOT ONLY SOLIDITY BUT GRAVITY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY
      • ‘ FURTILITY”, ALSO PLACE TO LIVE AND DWELL.
      • NATURE – NOT QUALITIES , PROPERTIES , NATURE CHARACTERS , SHAPES ,
      • FORMS , DIRECTIONAL BEHAVIOUR , PHYSICAL , CHEMICAL ,
      • SCIENTIFIC FORMULATIONS – ALL SUCH SENSITIVITIES EMERGED
      • OUT OF ANXIETY , PERCEPTION AND CAPACITY TO THINK AND
      • CONCEPTUALISE.
      • OUT OF IMMENSE LOT OF KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION MAN COULD WORK OUT THE ‘ESSENCE’ AND TRANSFORMED THEM INTO ‘CONCEPTS’ . LIKE FOR ALL KINDS OF QUALITIES , PROPERTIES , CHARACTERS – OF “MATTER” . HE COULD WORK OUT THE BASICS LIKE –
      • RAJA – SIGNIFIES ENERGY , MOTION AND STABILITY.
      • TAMA – STANDS FOR WEIGHT , DARKNESS , INERTIA AND
      • SATVA – IS LIGHTNESS AND PURITY.
      • THIS IS HOW THE SYMBOLIC VALUES EMERGED.
      • THIS UNDERSTANDING AND REALISATION ABOUT KNOWN AND UNKNOWN
      • ( MANIFEST AND NON MANIFEST ) AND SUBTLE SENSITIVITY ABOUT THE MATTER AROUND , THEIR RELATIONSHIP AMONGST AND WITH THE NATURE – ALL SUCH AWARENESS COULD BEUNFOLDED AND REVEALED BECAUSE OF THE MIND AND BRAIN’S CAPACITY TO THINK AND TO CONCEPTUALISE , ALSO 5 SENSES AND 5 BODY ORGANS TO ACT. THAT IS WHY MAN REFUSED TO WALK ON 4 LEGS INSTEAD HE USED TWO OF HIS LEGS AS HANDS TO ‘CREATE’.
      • WITH THESE SPECIALLY GIFTED ‘ FACULTIES ‘ IT IS IMPLIED THAT THE MAN IS DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER ANIMALS . IT IS ALSO IMPLIED THAT MAN HAS TO BE A CREATIVE ANIMAL USING THESE FACULTIES , WHICH HAVE THE INHERANT CAPACITY TO “CREATE” , THE CAPACITY DIRECTLY GIFTED BY THE NATURE , OF WHICH HE IS THE PART.
      • AS SUCH MAN NEEDS TO ( HAS TO ) CREATE EVERY DAY TO BE ABLE TO SURVIVE WHERE AS OTHER ANIMALS NEED NOT.
      • IN ALL ABOVE PROCESS THE “PERCEPTION” PLAYS THE MOST IMPORTANT ROLE . A SENSE OF COMPLETE PERCEPTION CAN NOT BE OBTAINED WITHOUT EYE , MIND ,BRAIN , 5 SENSES AND 5 BODY ORGANS. EYE MAY BE A REAL SOURCE OF PERCEPTION , BUT MIND , BRAIN , SENSES , BODY ORGANS FOR ACTION – A TOTAL PROCESS GIVES THE PERCEPTION. A MEANINGFUL TOUCH i.e. “COMPLETE SENSE OF PERCEPTION” – FROM WHERE EMERGES
      • PRADNYA – WISDOM , INTELLIGENCE
      • PRERANA – INSPIRATION
      • PRATIBHA – CREATIVITY
      • ABOVE THREE NOTIONS AND THEIR REFINEMENT LEADS TO HAVE A DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE COSMIC ENERGY WHERE REVELEATION OCCURES RESULTING INTO RATIONAL (SAD VIVEK BUDDHI), PURE CONCIOUSNESS , ENLIGHTENMENT AND FINALLY MOST IMPORTANT ATTRIBUTE OF “ INTUTION” GIVING WAY TO (RELEASING) CREATIVE ENERGY (WORK) WHEREBY WE EXPERIENCE ‘ PURE JOY ‘.
      • JOY – IS SUDDEN INSTANT EXPERIENCE.
      • IT IS NATURAL HENCE PURE ( NIRMAL ANAND)
      • OUR INNERSELF IS PLEASED , SATISFIED.
      • JOY IS ACCEPTABLE TO HEART.
      • PLEASURE – IS TO BE SEEKED , OBTAINED (SUKH , SUKHASIN)
      • MAY BE THROUGH MEMORY, SENSATIONS, SENSORY –
      • BODY ORGANS – ACTS.
      • ONE DERIVES PLEASURE OUT OF SITUATION ACCEPTABLE TO
      • BODY – MIND.
      • HAPPINESS – IS CONTENTMENT – SITUATION MAKES ONE HAPPY.
      • IT IS ALSO STATE OF MIND ( SHANTI / SAMADHAN)
      • WISH / IMPLIED SITUATION
      • ACCEPTABLE TO MIND.
      • ALL ABOVE ARE EXPERIENCES – INSTANT TO BE SEEKED , TO BE FELT / WISHED / TO BE WITH IT.
      • SO WE HAVE ALL THIS UNDERSTANDING , AWARENESS , CAPACITIES , CAPABILITIES – AS INHERENT ENERGIES , THE SUM OF IT IS CALLED
      • “ CREATIVE ENERGY”. THE “CREATIVITY” IS THE ESSENCE OF THE TOTAL CREATION OF UNIVERSE.
      • I STONGLY FEEL THAT BEFORE WE TAKE ANY STUDIES , WE MUST BE AWARE ABOUT THIS FACT THAT WE HAVE EVERYTHING WITHIN US. IN THE TRUE SENSE OF TERM WE ALL OURSELVES THE “ EXPRESSIONS “ OF THE SAME COSMIC ENERGY WORKING WITHIN US.
      • SO ALL KNOWLEDGE IS “ WITHIN “ REQUIRING TO BE DRAWN FROM WITHIN.
      • INSTEAD WE EXTRACT FROM OUTSIDE AND TRY TO ASSIMILATE WITHIN.
      • REAL EDUCATION REQUIRES US TO – NEED TO ENLIVEN ( ENERGISE) OUR COSMIC AWARENESS. WE ALL ARE LACKING THIS ASPECT AND HENCE OUR EDUCATION i.e. TEACHING AND LEARNING HAS BECOME SUPERFICIAL.
      • IN INDIA WE NEVER LOOK AT EDUCATION AS ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE.
      • ACTUALLY TEACHING AGAIN AND AGAIN – IS LIKE LEARNING AGAIN AND AGAIN. IF THIS IS UNDERSTOOD BY TEACHERS , THEN THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE OF TEACHING BECOMES ENJOYABLE AND MORE MEANINGFUL.

      • EXPRESSIONS
      • LIFE BECOMES LIVELY -- BECAUSE OF EXPRESSIONS
      • WE HAVE BODY , MIND , BRAIN , SENSES , EMOTION , FEELINGS.
      • WE NEED TO EXPRESS , IF WE DO NOT , OUR HUMAN “SPIRIT” WILL FADE.
      • WE MAY BECOME PHYSICALLY , PSHYCOLOGICALLY IMBALANCE , OUR HARMONS WILL ALSO FADE.
      • OUR BODY SYSTEM ALSO DEMANDS SUPPORT THROUGH EXPRESSIONS , WE NEED TO “OUTLET “ OUR FEELINGS, EMOTIONS , SENTIMENTS.
      • EVEN AMOEBA – RESPONSES , EXPRESSES TO NEARBY MOVEMENT.
      • EINSTINE SAID THAT WHEN HE WAS NOT OBSEVING SMALLEST MOLECULE
      • (ATOM) , THEIR BEHAVIOUR WAS DIFFERENT THAN THAT OF THE BEHAVIOUR WHEN HE WAS ACTUALLY OBSERVING THEM.
      • OUR BODY ELEMENTS REMAIN FRESH , ACTIVE BASED ON THE CHEMISTRY OF THE ‘ RASA ‘. EVERY MINUTE DUE TO THE ‘ACTIVITY’ OF THE BODY
      • ( THROUGH THE BODY ORGANS OF ACTION , ALSO DUE TO SENSES , DUE TO MIND / BRAIN WORKING ) DIFFERENT “ RASA’S “ ARE PRODUCED. UNTIL WE ‘ RELISH ‘ A PERTICULAR ACT , RASA’S DO NOT GET PRODUCED. THIS ALSO MEANS THE RESPONSE AND THE EXPRESSIONS. SO WE EXPERIENCE JOY , SORROW , HUMILIATION AND SO ON WHICH WE EXPRESS IN VARIOUS MANNER.
      • THROUGH OUR FACE , EYES , GESTURES , BODY MOVEMENTS , SOUND , WE WRITE , DRAW.
      • DUE TO THESE EXPRESSIONS AND IDEA OF PROCESSING THEM , PRESENTING THEM TO OTHERS, THEY WERE EXPRESSED WITH HELP OF THE MEDIUM.
      • ALL FINE ARTS AND PERFORMING ARTS ARE THE RESULTS OF SUCH EXPRESSIONS.
      • MAN IS THINKING ANIMAL AND HENCE HE JUST CAN THINK AND THINK , BUT HE NEEDS TO EXPRESS. HE MUST RELEASE HIS CREATIVE ENERGY TO THAT. HE CAN ACTIVATE HIS MIND AND BRAIN WITH FURTHER REFINEMENT OF THOUGHT.
      • THESE EXPRESSIONS MADE MAN PROGRESS. THE SEQUENTIAL UNFOLDING OF ANY IDEA WITH LOGIC , RESON , ABSTRACTION , REFINEMENT , ALL SUCH IMPORTANT NOTIONS HELPED MAN TO CONCLUDE MEANINGFULLY.
      • SO EXPRESSIONS IS TONIC TO BODY , MIND , BRAIN.
      • EXPRESSIONS --
      • EXTRACTIONS (TAKING OUT) EXPRESS
      • OBTAINING AN ABSTRACT APPEARANCE
      • DISTILLATION TONE
      • DECORATION MUSICAL
      • RENDERING MEANING
      • INFUSION DICTION
      • MANIFESTATION – SHOWING (PRAGAT) ELOQUENCE
      • FOR ALL OUR PHYSICAL , PSYCOLOGICAL ACTIONS , WE USE OUR PAST EXPERIENCE , PRESENT SITUATION , LOGIC , REASON , COMMON SENSE (NOT VERY COMMON) , PERCEPTION AND FINALLY INTUTION.
      • SO WE NEED TO DEVELOP THESE SENSITIVITIES i.e.
      • SENSE OF ARRANGEMENT
      • ORGANISATION AND
      • ORDER FOR VISUAL STUDIES.
      • WE HAVE SEEN --
      • HOW DOT PROGRESSES INTO LINE
      • WITH MOTIVARED LINE , HOW TEXTURES, PATTERNS EMERGE.
      • WITHLINE MANIPULATION HOW PLANE – SHAPES.
      • AND HOW PLANES TRANSFORM INTO FORM WHERE SPACE GETS CONCEIVED.
      • WE HAVE ALSO SEEN –
      • HOW EXTREME NATURE AND CHARACTERS OF 5 ELEMENTS AND OTHER
      • ELEMENTS IN CREATION ACT FORMULATED AS MARVELOUS
      • “ WHOLESOME CREATION”.
      • SIMILARLY , WE NOW SEE, HOW VISUAL ELEMENTS WITH DIFFERENT OR SOMETIMES WITH EXTREME VOCABULARY AND EXPRESSIONS BECOME MORE AND MORE MEANINGFUL , WHEN THEY ARE ARRANGED , ORGANISED AND PUT IN AN ORDER.
    • LET US SEE SOME OF THE WORDS AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND THEIR MEANINGS AND EXPRESSIONS. RADIATION ROTATION MOVEMENT MOTION GLIDE / SLIDE SIMILARITY SIMPLICITY COMPLEXITY CONTINUITY REPETETION RHYTHM GRADATION VARIETY RANDOM RIGIDITY REGULAR FORMAT PROXIMITY CLOSENESS APARTNESS UNITY HARMONY PROPORTION BALANCE SYMMETRICAL ASYMMETRICAL
      • DIAGONAL ALLOWS CLASSICAL BALANCE WITHOUT THE ARTIFICIAL INTEREST IN CONVENTIONAL AXIAL PLANNING IN WHICH , UNLESS ELEMENTS WERE RETAINED AND HELD IN POSITION FOR THE SAKE OF SYMMETRY.
      • BY ROTATING THE SQUARE , ONE CONVERTS THEIR OTHERWISE DEAD CORNERS INTO CONNECTORS MAKING EACH SQUARE ITS OWN CONNECTION WITH AN ORTHODOX LOGIC THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE IN ORTHOGONAL ARRANGEMENT.
      • WE WILL SEE SOME VISUALS TO AWAKEN OUR SENSITIVITY AND WHILE WORKING OUT AN EXERCISE – WHILE TAKING – DIRECT EXPERIENCE , WE REFINE OUR SENSITIVITY TO ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF VISUALS TO MAKE THEM MORE AND MORE INTERESTING.
      • WE USE EXTREME VOCABULARY – MEANING – AND EXPRESSIONS , MIX THEM , SEPARATE THEM , OVERLAP THEM AND STILL MAKE A WHOLESOME -- COMPLETE VISUAL WHICH PLEASES US.
    • MIND
      • MEMORY
      • MEMORY IS ENERGY.
      • LET US USE IT MAKING LIFE MORE RELAVENT AND MEANINGFUL.
      • MEMORY HELPS US MEANINGFUL SURVIVAL.
      • WITHOUT MEMORY , LIFE IS IRRELAVENT.
      • MEMORY IS ALSO A CAPACITY OF MIND WHICH GOES BACK. MEMORY ALSO CAN BE “ CARRY FORWARD “ , SO IT HAS A STRENGTH OF TIME.
      • GOOD MEMORIES ENRICHING LIFE TO CARRY FORWARD AND IF BAD MEMORIES GET CARRY FORWARD , THE LIFE BECOMES MISERABLE.

      • YELLOW – EARTH
      • GREEN – WATER
      • BLUE – AIR
      • RED -- FIRE
      • NEWTON FOUND THE SCIENCE OF COLOUR i.e.
      • PERCEPTION OF SEVEN COLOURS -- A SPECTRUM
      • 7 WAS THE MAGICAL NUMBER , THE HOLY NUMBER ,
      • 7 HEAVENS
      • 7 DIATONIC MUSICAL SCALE / MUSICAL EXPRESSION ALSO PERPORATED
      • 7 ORIGINAL PLANETS.
      • 7 COLOURS -- SCIENCE RAINBOW
      • COLOURS HAVE ALSO ABILITY TO REVEAL THE ELEMENTS OF HUMAN
      • PERSONALITY.
      • COLOUR IS NOW SHOWING IT’S POTENTIAL FOR ENRICHING HUMAN LIFE.
      • PSYCHEDELIC ART – APART FROM THE, IN FABRIC , IN PLASTICS , IN METAL
      • FINISHES FROM CARS TO COOKERS.
      • IT HAS ALSO “POWER” FOR HEALING , UNDERSTANDING IDENTIFICATION AND
      • COMMUNICATING -- GRAPHICS.
      • COLOUR IMPINGES ON OUR EVERY WALKING MOMENT AND PENETRATES
      • EVEN IN OUR DREAMS.
      • THERE IS COLOUR IN DAYLIGHT , IN THE SKY , AND IN THE LANDSCAPE , IN
      • OUR SKIN , HAIR AND EYES.
      • EVERY OBJECT THAT WE MANUFACTURE TO USE OR WEAR IS COLOURED OR
      • HAS COLOUR.
      • IT ATTRACTS US EMOTIONALLY , MAKING THINGS WARM OR COLD ,
      • PROVOCATIVE OR SYMPATHATIC , EXCITING OR TRANQUIL.
      • COLOUR IS LIGHT AS PER NEWTON’S THEORY.
      • COLOUR IS PIGMENT -- BUT EVEN THE COLOUR OF THE PIGMENT IS THE
      • COLOUR OF THE LIGHT IT REFLECTS.
      • COLOUR IS SENSATION , THE SENSE OF SIGHT FUNCTIONS ONLY WHEN LIGHT REACHES THE EYE.
      • THE SIMPLEST , MOST PRIMITIVE ORGANISMS REACT TO LIGHT – MOVING TOWARDS IT OR AWAY FROM IT.
      • COLOUR IS INFORMATION –
      • WE STOP AT RED , MOVE WHEN IT IS GREEN.
      • WE USE COLOUR TO IDENTIFY THE OBJECTS – FRUIT IS RIPE , DECAYING
      • VEGETABLES , ALSO BIRDS , ANIMALS
      • INCLUDING FOOTBALL , CRICKET TEAMS
      • COLOUR HELPS TO DIAGNOSE -- ILLNESS , ALSO HELPS HEALING , CURING
      • RED = RHUMATIC PAIN , ARTHRITIS
      • ALSO HELPS TO RECOGNISE – ANGER , FEAR , EMBARRASMENT.
      • THE COLOUR IS PRECISELY DESCRIBED AS AN IMAGE OF THE “ SUN “.
      • WITH INCREDIBLE SENSORIAL ONSLAUGHT THAT BOMBARDS US EVERY DAY
      • AND THE ARTIFICIAL INTENSITIES THAT WE ENCOUNTER IN THE VIRTUAL
      • WORLD , THE NATURE OF COLOUR SHOULD CHANGE. NO LONGER JUST A THIN
      • LAYER OF CHANGE , BUT SOMETHING THAT GENUINELY ALTERS PERCEPTION.
      • CORBUSIER IN HIS BOOKS DID NOT WASTE A SINGLE LINE ON THE SUBJECT
      • OF COLOUR. TO HIM COLOUR WAS NO LONGER A DECORATIVE ELEMENT. HE
      • PAINTED MANY OF HIS BUILDING WITH STRIKING COLOUR AND ALSO HAD THE
      • TREMENDOUS SENSITIVITY OF USING WHITE IN RON CHAMP.
      • MILES VAN DER ROHE FOLLOWS THE SAME INTENTION IN HIS USE OF
      • COLOUR IN HIS USE OF COLOUR , IN HIS VILLAS AND PAVELLIONS – GREEN
      • VELVET.
      • THESE AND FEW OTHER PIONEERS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE USED
      • COLOURS NOT AS A RANDOM AVERAGE OF WALL SURFACE WITH PIGMENT ,
      • BUT COLOURS DERIVED FROM THE MATERIALS THAT WERE USED IN
      • BUILDINGS TO FULFILL ITS ORIGINAL PURPOSE OF DEFINING VOLUMES IN
      • SPACE.
      • THE USE OF COLOUR AS A MATERIAL WITH QUANTITIES OF ITS OWN , RATHER
      • THAN SIMPLY AS A PROTECTIVE COATING FOR THE SURFACE. i.e. THE
      • UNDERSTANDING OF IT AS ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENT THAT USED TO GIVE
      • SHAPE TO THE INTERFACE BETWEEN SURFACE AND SPACE.
      • .
      • WHITE IS THE SHORT LIVED EMBLEM OF PERPETUAL MOVEMENT.
      • WHITE IS ALWAYS PRESENT BUT NEVER THE SAME , BRIGHT AND ROLLING IN THE DAY.
      • SILVER AND EFFERVESCENT UNDER THE FULL MOON OF TRIPURI POURNIMA.
      • BETWEEN THE SEA OF UNCONCIOUSNESS AND EARTH’S VAST MATERIALITY – LIES THIS EVER CHANGING LINE OF WHITE.
      • WHITE IS THE LIGHT ,THE MEDIUM OF UNDERSTANDING AND TRANSFORMATIVE POWER.
      • COLOUR IS AN IMORTANT FACTOR WHICH ADDS BEAUTY TO THE WORLD AROUND US. EVERYONE IS DELIGHTED BY NATURES COLOURFUL SPLENDOUR.
      • THE VISUAL SYSTEM , AVAILABLE LIGHT AND PERCEIVED OBJECTS INTERACT TO PRODUCE COLOUR – VISION.
      • THE COLOUR PLAYS VERY IMPORTANT ROLE AND HAS GREAT INFLUENCE IN CREATING ARCHITECTURAL SPACE AND FORM.
      • COLOURS ARE SEEN DUE TO LIGHT.
      • HENCE , THE LIGHT IS THE MAIN SOURCE OF COLOUR. COLOURFUL FABRIC DOES NOT POSSES THE COLOUR WE SEE. IT IS MADE UP WITH SOME PARTICLES OF A PERTICULAR TYPE , WHICH ABSORB CERTAIN COLUOR RAYS FROM LIGHT, AND REFLECT THE REMAINING RAYS. THESE REFLECTED RAYS GIVE A PERTICULAR COLOUR TO THAT PERTICULAR OBJECT.
      • THE IDEA THAT THE “ SURROUNDING OBJECTS DO NOT POSSESS THE COLOUR WE SEE “ IS NOT EASILY ACCEPTABLE , BECAUSE WE HAVE LEARNED FROM THE BEGINNING THAT THE SKY IS BLUE , FOLIAGE IS GREEN , AND SO ON…
      • BUT THIS WILL PROVE APART ,ONCE WE STUDY THE COMPONENTS OF LIGHT AND THEIR REACTIONS ON YOUR “RETINA” WHICH GIVE VARIED SENSATIONS OF COLOUR.
      • SO LIGHT IS THE SOURCE OF COLOURS…..
      • WHAT IS “LIGHT” ?
      • ENERGY REVEALED BY EINSTEIN’S FORMULA E = MC2 , WHERE
      • M = MASS OR MATTER
      • C = VELOCITY OF LIGHT (OR SPEED)
      • SPEED OF LIGHT IN SPACE OR VACCUME IS CONSTANT i.e. , 1,86,000 MILES PER SECOND.
      • LIGHT
      • ELECTRO MAGNETIC WAVES CARRY ENERGY IN ALL DIRECTIONS THROUGH THE UNIVERSE . ALL OBJECTS RECEIVE , ABSORB AND RADIATE THESE WAVES.
      • LIGHT IS ONE FORM OF ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES. ALL ELECTRO MAGNETIC WAVES IN SPACE TRAVEL AT THE SAME SPEED.
      • ELECTRO MAGNETIC WAVES SHOW A CONTINUOUS RANGE OF FREQUENCIES AND WAVE LENGTH.
      • FREQUENCY IS THE NUMBER OF WAVE – RESTS PASSING A POINT IN ONE SECOND.
      • ELECTRO MAGNETIC WAVES RUN FROM ONE / SECOND TO TRILLION / SECOND.
      • FOR LIGHT ,THE FREQUENCIES ARE 4 TO 8 TRILLIONS WAVES / SECOND.
      • SPEED OF THE WAVELENGTH.
      • HIGHER THE FREQUENCY , SHORTER THE WAVE LENGTH.
      • GAMMA RAYS -- AMOUNT OF ABSORPTION DEPENDS ON THE DENSITY OF
      • X – RAYS MATERIAL USEFUL FOR MAKING SHADOW GRAINS “ X” RAY
      • PICTURES.
      • ULTRA VIOLET – PRODUCED BY THE SUN / SPECIAL / AMPS NOT DETECTABLE
      • RAYS BY EYES. WAVELENGTH LONGER THAN “ X” RAYS BUT
      • SHORTER THAN NORMAL – LIGHT
      • VISIBLE LIGHT – PORTION OF EM SPECTRUM THAT NORMALLY STIMULATES
      • THE SENSES OF OUR SIGHT.
      • VISIBLE PART OF THE SPECTRUM.
      • FREQUENCIES AND WAVELENGTH – AREAS WHAT WE SEE AS
      • “ COLOURS “.
      • ISAAC NEWTON SUBSEQUENTIALLY DISCOVERED THE EXISTANCE OF COLOURS IN LIGHT ITSELF.
      • AS PER HIS THEORY
      • WHITE LIGHT CONTAINS SEVEN COLOURS. WHEN LIGHT PASSES THROUGH A PRISM , IT BENDS AND THEN BREAKS UP IN TO SEVEN DIFFERENT COLOUR RAYS.
      • THEIR NATURAL SEQUENCE IS CALLED THE “ SPECTRUM “ .DIFFERENT RAYS BEND TO DIFFERENT ANGLES ACCORDING TO THEIR WAVELENGTH.
      • THE REFRACTIVE ANGLE OF RED COLOUR IS ACCUTE AND THAT OF VIOLET IS OBTUSE.
      • THE REFRACTIVE ANGLES OF THE REMAINING COLOUR RAYS RANGE BETWEEN THESE COLOURS.
      • THE SEQUENTIAL COLOUR RAYS IN SPECTRUM ARE –
      • RED
      • ORANGE
      • YELLOW
      • GREEN
      • BLUE
      • INDIGO AND
      • VIOLET
      • IF THESE SEVEN COLOURS ARE BROUGHT TOGETHER AGAIN TO A FOCUS THROUGH A CONVEX LENSE , THEY RESULT IN SINGLE WHITE RAY.
      • DIFFERENT COLOURS SEEN ARE DUE TO THE VARIOUS LIGHT WAVES OF DIFFERING WAVE LENGTHS.
      • BECAUSE OF THESE DIFFERING WAVE LENGTHS , CERTAIN COLOURS ARE PERCEIVED EARLIER THAN OTHERS LIKE RED IS FIRST AND VIOLET IS LAST.
      • THE SENSATION OF PURE SATURATED COLOUR IS EXPERIENCED IF THE EYES ARE EXPOSED TO THE ONLY ONE WAVELENGTH OF LIGHT. MOST COLOUR SENSATIONS ARE THE RESULT OF RETINAL ( DOLA – PADADA) STIMULATION BY MIXED AND VARYING WAVELENGTHS OF LIGHT. THESE SENSATIONS ARE EXPERIENCED AS DULLER , LESS SATURATED OR DE-SATURATED COLOURS.
      • RAYS OF LIGHT PASSING THROUGH THE PUPIL AND THE LENS BEHIND THE IRIS IN THE EYE CREATE AN IMAGE ON THE RETINA.
      • RETINA CONTAINS SENSATIVE CELLS KNOWN AS CONES – WORK IN BRIGHT LIGHT WHEN WE REALISE COLOUR CLEARLY,
      • WHEREAS
      • THE RODS IN DIM LIGHT AND DARKNESS SENSATION OF COLOURS IS NOT DUE TO RODS BUT ONLY DUE TO CONES.
      • WE EXPERIENCE THAT --
      • AT DUSK THINGS ARE COLOURLESS KEEPING GREYISH TONE. THIS TIME THE ‘CONES’ ARE DORMANT AND ‘RODS’ ARE ACTIVE GIVING SENSATION OF “FUZZY” MONOCHROME.
      • SENSORY NERVES CARRY THE MESSAGE FROM RETINA TO THE BRAIN.
      • HUE : IS THE QUALITY OF COLOUR BY WHICH WE DISTINGUISH IT FROM
      • OTHER COLOURS OR
      • HUE IS THE NAME BY WHICH WE RECOGNISE COLOUR.
      • VALUE : A SCALE WHICH SHOWS A SEQUENCE IN TONE VALUE OF COLOURS.
      • VALUE IS PERCEIVED OR APPERENT LIGHTNESS OR DARKNESS OF A
      • COLOUR. GREY TO BLACK – LIKE GREY SCALE.
      • A HIGH CHROMA COLOUR IS A VIVID PURE OR SATURATED COLOUR.
      • A LOW CHROMA COLOUR IS DULL OR GRAYED.
      • TONAL VALUE OF EACH COLOUR CAN GET AFFECTED BY ADDING WHITE OR BLACK.
      • THE GRADUAL ADDITION OF WHITE CAN PRODUCE –TINTS.
      • GRADUAL ADDITION OF BLACK CAN PRODUCE -- SHADES.
      • MAXIMUM ADDITION OF ‘WHITE’ GIVES “ HIGH VALUE”.
      • MAXIMUM ADDITION OF ‘ BLACK’ GIVES “ LOW VALUE”.
      • INTENSITY, CHROMA AND SATURATION – THESE QUALITIES OF COLOUR ARE CALLED THE STRENGTH OF COLOUR.
      • INTENSITY MAY BE REDUCED BY ADDING BLACK OR WHITE OR GREY TO THE COLOUR IN PURE FORM.
      • INTENSIVE COLOURS WITH A BACKGROUND OF WEAKER COLOURS FACINATES US.
      • SOME COLOURS GIVE US IMPRESSION THAT THEY ARE PROJECTING OUT OF PICTURE PLANE , SUCH COLOURS ARE CALLED ADVANCING COLOURS.
      • SOME COLOURS FALL IN THE BACKGROUND ARE CALLED RECEDING COLOURS.
      • COLOURS NOT HAVING AN ADVANCE OR RECEEDING QUALITY ARE CALLED NEUTRAL COLOURS. BALANCE IS NORMALLY ACHIEVED BY NEUTRAL COLOURS.
      • MIXING OF COLOURS –
      • MIXING OF LIGHT RAY AND MIXING PIGMENTS – ARE DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER BECAUSE THESE TWO PROCESSES ARE DIFFERENT BY NATURE.

      SCHEME OF TWO OR MORE COLOURS WITHOUT THE USE OF BLACK , GREY , WHITE.
      • CHROMATIC HARMONY --
      USE OF ONE CHROMATIC COLOUR , USE OF GRADED SHADES AND TINTS OF ONE COLOUR WITH DIFFERENT NEUTRALISED TONE.
      • MONOCHROMATIC HARMONY --
      HARMONY WITHOUT CHROMA. RESULT IS ACHIEVED WITH THE USE OF DIFFERENT TONES OF BLACK AND WHITE.
      • ACHROMATIC HARMONY -
      COLOUR COMBINATIONS WITH ONE OR MORE COLOURS WITH VIVID TINTS AND SHADES CREATING A PLEASANT AND AGREEABLE SENSATION TO THE EYES AND MIND OF THE OBSERVER.
      • COLOUR HARMONIES --
    • THE COLOURS AT THE THREE ANGLES OF EQUILATERAL TRAINGLE ON THE COLOUR WHEEL USE TO CREATE T.H. THREE PRIMARY/ THREE SECONDARY COLOURS Y.O / R.V / B.G AND R.O / B.V / Y.G DIFFICULT TASK BUT RICH AND BEAUTIFUL.
      • TRIAD HARMONY --
      SCHEME OF FOUR COLOURS – TWO ADJECENT COLOURS ON THE COLOUR WHEEL AND TWO ADJECENT OF ITS OPPOSITES –TO CREATE D.S.C.H. -- R/O – R/ V = YG AND BG
      • DOUBLE SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY HARMONY --
      WHEN A COLOUR ON A COLOUR WHEEL AND THE ADJECENT TWO COLOURS OF IT’S OPPOSITE ARE USED TO CREATE S.C.H. – RED – VIOLET = BLUE-VIOLET
      • SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY HARMONY --
      A PAIR OF TWO CONSECUTIVE COLOURS ON THE COLOUR WHEEL AND THEIR DIAGONALLY OPPOSITES ARE CALLED D.C.C. AND THE SCHEME IS CALLED D.C.H. GREEN / BLUE –GREEN – IS COMPLEMENTARY TO OPPOSITE PAIR OF RED / RED ORANGE.
      • DOUBLE COMLEMENTARY HARMONY --
    • TO OBTAIN THIS SCHEME , WE HAVE TO USE MAJOR AREA WITH DARK TONE , REMAINING AREA WITH LIGHTER TONE. SMALLER AREA WITH BRIGHTER TONE AGAINST THE DARK BACKGROUND LIKE EFFECT OF TWINKLING STARS AGAINST DARK SKY.
      • LOW KEY HARMONY
      COLOURS WITH PROMINANCE OF RED ,YELLOW – BRIGHT , WARM AND ATTRACTIVE. ADVANCE COLOURS , EYE CATCHING.
      • HARMONY OF WARM COLOURS
      COLOURS WHICH HAVE BLUES IN PROMINENCE = COOL COLOURS. COOL COLOURS ARE RECEDING , BUT PRODUCE SOOTHING EFFECT ON EYE.
      • HARMONY OF COOL COLOURS
      VARIED COLOURS IN CONTRAST AND THEIR TINTS AND SHADES.
      • HARMONY OF COLOURS IN CONTRAST WITHT THEIR TONES
      SIMPLEST SCHEME , ONE COLOUR HUE WITH BACKGROUND OF W. G. B.
      • HARMONY OF ONE COLOUR HUE WITH W. G. B.
      COMBINATION OF DIFFERENT COLOURS , HUES IN CONTRAST USED WITH B. G. W. – BACKGROUND TO ENHANCE THE VIVIDITY.
      • HARMONY WITH CONTRAST IN HUE
    • ONLY LIGHT TONES OF COLOURS. COLOURS APPEAR FLAT , LACK DEPTH.
      • HIGH KEY HARMONY
      NO CONTRASTING EFFECT. ONLY BRIGHT AND MEDIUM TONES. NO DARK OR DEEP SHADES.
      • MEDIUM KEY HARMONY
      • OPTICAL ILLUSION AND COLOUR PHENOMENON :
      • COLOURS , WHEN APPLIED , START REACTING.THIS REACTION IS ALWAYS INFUSED BY ESTABLISHING VARIOUS COMBINATIONS AND CHANGING OF LIGHT CONDITIONS – REACTIVATION OF THE SUBSTANCE OF COLOUR. THIS REACTIVATION IS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE VARIED QUALITY OF LIGHT AND THE WAY THE VISUAL MESSAGE IS CARRIED THROUGH OUR OPTICAL SYSTEM. SUCH A PHENOMENON AND VARIED POSSIBILITIES OF COLOUR OFTEN CONTRIBUTE TO THE MERIT OF WORK , RESULTING IN THE SENSE OF MOVEMENT. THIS PHENOMENON IS TERMED AS A ‘ KINETIC ASPECT’.
      • EXAMPLES OF OPTICAL ILLUSIONS :
      • SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST OF HUE –
      • TWO OR MORE HUES COMING TOGETHER PRESENT AN AFFECTED LOOK. COMBINATION OF Y & B – YELLOW HAS A TINGE OF BLUE AND BLUE HAS TINGE OF YELLOW.
      • SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST OF VALUE –
      • HIGH TONE AND LOW TONE COLOURS PLACED TOGETHER AFFECT EACH OTHERS TONAL VALUE. LIGHT VALUE OF HIGH TONE INCREASES , THE DARK VALUE OR LOW TONE ALSO INCREASES. GREY STRIP ON BLACK LOOKS LIGHTER WHILE BLACK BACKGROUND LOOKS DARKER.
      • SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST OF CHROMA – WHEN CHROMA IS PLACED WITH A NEUTRAL COLOUR , THE CHROMATIC QUALITY OF CHROMA ( INTENSITY) IS INCREASED AND NEUTRAL COLOUR LOOKS DULLER.
      • OBSERVATIONS OF SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST :
      • COLOURS ARE MODIFIED IN APPEARANCE BY THEIR PROXIMITY TO OTHER COLOURS.
      • LIGHT COLOURS SEEM MOST STRIKING AGAINST BLACK AND DARK COLOURS SEEM MOST STRIKING AGAINST WHITE.
      • DARK COLOURS UPON LIGHT COLOURS LOOK DARKER THAN ON DARK COLOURS.
      • LIGHT COLOURS UPON DARK COLOURS LOOK LIGHTER THAN ON LIGHT COLOURS.
      • COLOURS ARE INFLUENCED IN HUE BY ADJECENT COLOURS , EACH TINTING ITS NEIGHBOUR WITH ITS OWN COMPLEMENT.
      • IF TWO COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS LIE SIDE BY SIDE , EACH SEEMS MORE INTENSE THAN BY ITSELF.
      • DARK HUE ON DARK GROUND WHICH IS NOT COMPLEMENTARY WILL APPEAR WEAKER THAN ON A COMPLEMENTARY GROUND.
      • A BRIGHT COLOUR AGAINST A DULL COLOUR OF THE SAME HUE WILL FURTHER DEADEN THE DULL COLOUR.
      • WHEN THE BRIGHT COLOUR IS USED AGAINST A DULL COLOUR , THE CONTRAST WILL BE STRONGEST WHEN THE LATTER IS COMPLEMENTARY.
      • AFER IMAGE –
      • WHEN WE LOOK CONSTANTLY AT A COLOURED FORM AND SHIFT OUR GAZE ON A WHITE SURFACE, WE GET AN IMAGE OF THE COMPLEMENTARY COLOUR IN THE SAME FORM.
      • COLOUR IN VARIED CONDITIONS OF LIGHT –
      • CHANGE IN CHROMATIC FEEL DUE TO THE VARIED CONDITIONS OF LIGHT IS ALSO POSSIBLE.
      • COLOUR VIBRATIONS –
      • WHEN COOLCOLOUR HUES AND WARM COLOUR HUES ARE JUXTAPOSED , THEY GIVE AN IMPRESSION OF VIBRATIONS.
      • OPTICAL COLOUR MIXING –
      • IF DOTS ON ONE COLOUR ARE INTERSPERSED WITH THE DOTS OF ANOTHER COLOUR, TOTAL VISUAL EFFECT CREATED IS THAT OF THE THIRD COLOUR.
      • ( Y + R = O , R + W = O )
      • REVERSIBLE PERSPECTIVE –
      • TWO FORMS OF THE SAME PATTERN OFTEN PRODUCE DIFFERENT VISUAL EFFECT DUE TO THEIR TONAL DIFFERENCES.
      • MOIRE PATTERN –
      • WHEN TWO PATTERNS ARE OVERLAID, A NEW AND COMPLEX PATTERN EVOLVES.
      • OPTICAL ILLUSION THRIOUGH LINES AND TONES –
      • A MANIPULATION WHICH DISTURBS THE NORMAL VISION AND THE SENSE OF DIMENSION.
      • CONVERGING , DIVERGING LINES –
      • OPYICAL ILLUSION CAN ALSO BE INDUCED THROUGH THE MANIPULATION OF THE TONES.
      • VISIBILITY –
      • EVERY COLOUR DIFFERS IN VISIBILITY.
      • WHEN THE SAME SIZE , BUT OF DIFFERENT COLOUR IS PLACED AT AN IDENTICAL DISTANCE , SOME OBJECTS MAY APPEAR LARGER AND NEARER . YELLOW LOOKS LARGER. THE ORDER OF VISIBILITY -- Y . W. O. R. G. B.
      • THE INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION ON ILLUMINATION ( COMMISSION INTERNATIONALE D’ECAIRAGE OR ‘CIE’) DEVELOPED A SYSTEM TO IDENTIFY COLOURS WITH THE INSTRUMENTS THAT MEASURE COMPONENTS OF LIGHT. CIE SYSTEM DETERMINES THE NUMERIC VALUES X , Y, & Z. THE LIGHT FROM ANY SOURCE OR REFLECTED FROM ANY SURFACE CAN BE BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE NUMERICAL VALUES THAT SPECIALLY IDENTIFY THE COLOUR.
      • COLOUR VISION AND ECOLOGICAL USES : ( GIBSON 1966)
      • COLOUR VISION IMPROVES THE ABILITY TO DISTINGUISH SURFACES IN SIGNIFICANT WAYS. DISCRIMINATING AMONG COLOURS IS A PART OF THE GENERAL ABILITY TO DISCRIMINATE AMONG SUBSTANCES AND ENHANCES HUMAN SURVIVAL.
      • COLOUR VISION – CULTURAL CONTEXT
      • IN GENERAL COLOUR TERMINOLOGY AND GROUPING ARE CULTURALLY AND SOCIALLY DETERMINED. LIKE WHITE = PURITY IN WESTERN CIVILISATION , BUT WHITE = DEATH IN EASERN CIVILISATION.
      • COLOURED OR NON –WHITES = FEWER RIGHTS THAN BEING WHITE.
      • VISUALS : CD : AS INDICATED IN THE SCRIPT.

      • STUDENTS WORK
      • LIGHT
      • AS HUMAN BEINGS WE ALL SHARE CERTAIN NEEDS WHICH WE CAN CALL BIOLOGICAL INFORMATION NEEDS : NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THE NATURE AND STRUCTURE OF OUR IMMEDIATE ENVIRONMENT , NEEDS WHICH ARE ROOTED IN THE “ DARWINIAN “ DRIVES FOR SURVIVAL AND SECURITY , NEEDS WHICH TRANSCEND THE SCOPE OF AESTHETIC SQUABBLES BASED ON PERSONAL FANCY OR MERELY CULTURAL DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN GROUPS OF HUMAN BEINGS.
      • MY EYES AND EXPERIENCE CONVINCED ME THAT FROM THE ANALYSIS OF SUCH NEEDS IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO DEVELOPE A NEW APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF LUMINOUS ENVIRONMENT.
      • AS HUMAN BEING WE EVALUATE AN ENVIRONMENT ACCORDING TO HOW WELL THE ENVIRONMENT IS STRUCTURED , ORGANISED AND ILLUMINATED TO SATISFY ALL OUR NEEDS FOR VISUAL INFORMATION.THESE NEEDS DERIVE FROM BOTH THE ACTIVITIES IN WHICH WE CHOOSE TO ENGAGE AND THE BIOLOGICAL INFORMATION NEEDS RELATED TO THE VERY ESSENTIALS OF HUMAN NATURE WHICH ARE ALWAYS PRESENT REGARDLESS OF SPECIFIC ACTIVITY WHICH HOLDS OUR ATTENTION AT ANY ONE TIME.
      • THE ENVIRONMENT WHICH SATISFIES ALL OUR NEEDS RELEVENT , THIS QUALITY OF RELEVENCE WHICH DETERMINES WHETHER , WE CAN JUDGE AN ENVIRONMENT TO BE CHEERFULL OR GLOOMY , ATTRACTIVE OR DEPRESSING , SPRKLING OR GLARING.
      • IN THE RELEVENT APPROPRIATE LUMINOUS ENVIRONMENT , THOSE THINGS WHICH WE WANT OR NEED TO SEE ARE CLEARLY VISIBLE AND EMPHASISED , WHILE THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE DISTRACTING OR UNPLEASANT ARE DE-EMPHASISED OR HIDDEN FROM SIGHT.
      • THE RELEVENT ENVIRONMENT IS COMFORTING AND REASSURING , IT MAKES US FEEL AT EASE, WHILE HELPING US TO DO THINGS WE DO.
      • A GOOD , APPROPRIATE , RELEVENT , LUMINOUS ENVIRONMENT IS NOT ENOUGH . IT NEEDS TO BE WITH DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE PRINCIPLES OF PERCEPTION AND OF THE TRUE , TOTAL NATURE OF HUMAN PERCEPTUAL NEEDS.
      • LIGHT HAS ALWAYS BEEN RECOGNISED AS ONE OF THE MOST POWEFUL “FORM-GIVERS” AVAILABLE TO THE DESIGNERS.
      • LIGHT IS IMPORTANT AND PRINCIPAL MEDIUM WHICH PUTS MAN IN TOUCH WITH IT’S ENVIRONMENT.
      • CORBUSIER RIGHTLY SAID THAT –
      • ” ARCHITECTURE IS THE MASTERLY CORRECT AND MAGNIFICANT PLAY OF MASSES BROUGHT TOGETHER IN LIGHT”
      • AFTER CENTURIES OF PAINSTAKINGLY AND OFTEN INGENEOUSLY MANUPULATING OUR BUILDINGS TO SUIT THE VAGARIES OF NATURAL LIGHT , WE FIND PARADIXICALLY , THAT WE HAVE VERY LITTLE APTITUDE FOR MANUPULATING OUR NEW WEALTH ( THANKS TO EDISON) OF ARTIFICIAL LIGHT TO SUIT VAGARIES OF OUR BUILDINGS.

      • THE CEILING
      • EVERY ELEMENT IN NATURE IS ADVANTAGEOUS OR DIS ADVANTAGEOUS DEPENDING ON OUR BIOLOGICAL NEEDS OR PSYCOLOGICAL NEEDS.
      • AIR IS BIOLOGICAL NEED AS WE NEED TO BREATHE AT THE SAME TIME WHEN IT STARTS BLOWING VIGOROUSLY WE ARE NOT COMFORTABLE BIOLOGICALLY -- IT AFFECTS OUR BODY ORGANS AND PSYCOLOGICALLY -- WE ARE SCARED , HAVE FEAR.
      • SAME CAN BE SAID ABOUT OTHER ELEMENTS – LIKE LIGHT.
      • VARIOUS QUALITIES OF LIGHT DO AFFECT US BIOLOGICALLY ALSO PSYCOLOGICALLY.
      • LIGHT IS NEEDED FOR VISUAL INFORMATION , IMPORTANTLY CONNECTED WITH VISUAL PERCEPTION.
      • ALSO TO DEVELOP PSYCOLOGICAL FEELINGS ,ALSO FOR EVOKING MIND AND BRAIN , BECAUSE IF THERE IS NO LIGHT , OUR PSYCHI WORLD DEVELOP ENTIRELY IN UNDESIRABLE MANNER.
      • MAN, HAVING BRAIN , A VERY SPECIAL FACULTY CAN THINK , CONCEPTUALISE.
      • HALF THE ACTIVITY OF BRAIN MAY NOT FUNCTION, IF WE DO NOT PERCEIVE – THROUGH EYES AND SUCH LIGHT IS IMPORTANT.
      • AS ARCHITECTS WHILE DESIGNING SPACE , THE QUALITY OF LIGHT –NATURAL OR ARTIFICIAL , INTERNAL , EXTERNAL – PLAYS VERY IMPORTANT ROLE AS IT ORGANISES THE VISUAL – INFORMATION , QUALITY OF SPACE , ALSO VISUAL , PHYSICAL AND PSYCOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENT – TO GET SPACE EVOKED AND TO HELP SPACE BECOMES MORE AND MORE RELEVENT AND MEANINGFUL TO SUIT HUMAN FUNCTIONS BIOLOGICALLY AND PSYCOLOGICALLY.
      • THE APPROPRIATE QUALITY OF LIGHT ENHANCES – FORM , STRUCTURE , CONSTRUCTION , MATERIALS , COLOUR , TEXTURE , PATTERN. THEREBY ENHANCES THE QUALITY OF SPACE.
      • WHEN I VISITED BANI VILLAGE OF RAJASTHAN – FIRST TIME I REALISED THAT IN OUR TROPICAL CONDITIONS , WE DO NOT NEED SO MUCH OF LIGHT , BUT APPROPRIATENESS OF LIGHT IS IMPORTANT.
      • CIRCULAR HUTS – KAVADASA
      • AHMADABAD JALIES KEEPING AWAY THE GLARE OF LIGHT.

      • LUNAR FULL ECLIPSE – OVERLAPPING OF SUN – 1 ST STAGE , 2 ND STAGE , 3 RD STAGE & THE SHADOWS WERE RECEDING AND FINALLY THE PRESENCE OF GLITTERING DIAMOND RING IN THE SKY.
      • FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I FELT TOUCHING THE – PHYSICAL QUALITY OF LIGHT – RECEDING SHADOWS.
      • DIWALI – JOY
      • HOLI – MISCHIVOUS LIGHT / PANIC ( VANAWA) / FEAR
      • DEVGHAR – TRANSITION CAPACITY – MAND / SHANT
      • TRIPURI POURNIMA – WHOLESOME LIGHT.
      • LIGHT – SHADE
      • SO WE NEED TO DEVELOP THE SENSITIVITY TO UNDERSTAND AND APPROPRIATE THE QUALITY OF LIGHT THROUGH EXPERIENCE.
      • LIGHT – SHADE – SUDDEN DARKNESS
      • AMPLE LIGHT , CONTROLLED LIGHT , APPROPRIATE LIGHT , WALL LIGHT, ROOF LIGHT , KAVADASA TYPE LIGHT.
      • SOURCE OF LIGHT : YELLOW MILKY BULB ( 25 WATT)
      • SHADOW OF THE SOURCE IS CAST BUT IS QUITE INSIGNIFICANT.
      • THE FORM OF THE SOURCE OF LIGHT DRAWS ATTENTION.
      • THERE IS NO FLOODING OF YELLOW LIGHT OF THE BULB IN ALL CASES.
      • THE SPACE HAS CLASSY MOOD.
      • CORNERS ARE VISIBLE DISTINCTIVELY.
      • SOURCE OF LIGHT : FLUROSCENT BULB
      • BLUISH WHITE FLOODS.
      • WHEN ALL BUILDINGS WERE DESIGNED AROUND SINGLE FIXED LIGHT SOURCE i.e. SUN , THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GREAT ARCHITECTURE AND MERE BUILDINGS COULD BE MEASURED TO A LARGE DEGREE BY SKILL WITH WHICH THAT SOURCE – THE SUN – WAS USED TO IT’S MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE. THE FORMS , SHAPES , SIZES , MATERIALS , ALSO DETAILS IN THEM WERE DETERMINED LARGELY BY THE APPEARANCE THAT WOULD TAKE ON WHEN RENDERED BY DAY LIGHT.
      • LIGHT WAS NOT ALWAYS SIMPLY APPLIES TO STRUCTURAL INNOVATIONS , MORE OFTEN THE STRUCTURES THEMSELVES WERE DEVELOPED TO MAKE POSSIBLE DESIRED LIGHTING AND SPECIAL EFFECTS.
      • THE YEARS SINCE THE EDISON , HOWEVER , HAVE BROUGHT ARCHITECTS QUITE LITERALLY MORE LIGHT THAN THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.
      • NOW FINALLY WE HAVE ARTIFICIAL SOURCES WHICH ARE NOT ONLY EASIER TO CONTROL THAN DAYLIGHT BUT CAN LIGHT INTERIOOR SPACES FAR MORE BRIGHTLY.NOW THEOROTICALLY THE POSSIBILITIES FOR IMAGINATIVE LIGHTING ARE LIMITLESS.
      • “ A GOOD LUMINOUS ENVIRONMENT HELPS US TO DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND MAKES US FEEL GOOD WHILE WE DO IT”. THIS SIMPLE STATEMENT ACTUALLY TELLS US THE REAL OBJECTIVE OF LIGHT – THE QUALITY OF LIGHT – TO PROVIDE A COMFORTABLE , REASSURING , INTERESTING AND FUNCTIONAL SPACE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WILL LIVE IN IT.
      • WHEN WE SEE IN LIGHT, WHAT DO WE EXPECT , A COMPLETE COMFORT. WE ARE COMFORTABLE WHEN WE ARE FREE TO FOCUS OUR ATTENTION ON WHAT WE WANT TO OR NEED TO SEE. WHEN THE INFORMATION WE SEEK IS CLEARLY VISIBLE AND CONFIRMS OUR DESIRE AND OUR EXPECTATIONS AND WHEN THE BACKGROUND DOES NOT COMPETE FOR OUR ATTENTION IN A DISTRACTING WAY. WHEN THESE CONDITIONS ARE SATISFIED , WE CONSIDER THAT A SPACE IS ATTRACTIVE AND HAS AN APPROPRIATE FOCUS.
      • ALMOST EVERY BUILT ENVIRONMENT IS CREATED TO HOUSE SOME FORM OF HUMAN ACTIVITY. TO PERFORM ALMOST ANY TASK , TO ENGAGE SUCCESSFULLY IN ALMOST ANY ACTIVITY , ONE NEEDS CERTAIN DEFINABLE TYPES OF INFORMATION.
      • “ VISUAL INFORMATION” – A BIOLOGICAL NEED OF HUMAN BEING.
      • HUMAN PERCEPTION IS AN ACTIVE INFORMATION – SEEKING PROCESS WHICH INVOLVES MANY MECHANISMS IN THE EYE AND THE BRAIN , SOME CONCIOUS AND OTHER UNCONCIOUS.
      • AS HUMAN BEINGS ,WE EVALUATE AN ENVIRONMENT ACCORDING TO HOW WELL THAT ENVIRONMENT IS STRUCTURED , ORGANISED AND ILLUMIATED TO SATISFY ALL OUR NEEDS FOR VISUAL INFORMATION. THESE NEEDS DERIVE FROM BOTH, THE ACTIVITIES IN WHICH WE CHOOSE TO ENGAGE AND THE BIOLOGICAL INFORMATION NEEDS – RELATED TO THE VERY ESSENTIALS OF HUMAN NATURE WHICH ARE ALWAYS PRESENT REGARDLESS OF SPECIFIC ACTIVITY WHICH HOLDS OUR ATTENTION AT ANY ONE TIME.

      • CARVING OUT SPACE
      • SPACE
      • SPACE : OCCUPIED , UNOCCUPIED.
      • SPACE DIVISION
      • IN ABOVE ASSIGNMENT A CONTINUED SPACE IS TO BE OCCUPIED OR TO BE DIVIDED TO CREATE INTERESTING SITUATON.
      • THE CUBES OR PARTITIONS TO BE ZUXTA POSITIONED IN SUCH A MANNER WHEREBY THE EMPTYNESS IS CREATED AROUND , ALONG WITH , ON THE GROUND ( FORE GROUND , BACKGROUND).THE OBJECTS AND A KIND OF VISUAL RELATIONSHIP IS DEVELOPED BETWEEN THEIR VOLUMES , FORMS AND SURFACES , AND THE SIDES ,TOP BPTTOM , SURFACES OF WALLS OF THE CONFINE SPACE. THE INTERESTING SITUATIONS THEREBY CREATED HAVE ITS OWN VISUAL EFFECT AND SEVERAL ASPECTS AS SPACE OCCUPIED , UNOCCUPIED – LIKE SPACE FLOWING ON THE GROUND , AT SOOFIT , SURFACES OF THE SIDE WALLS AND OCCUPYING OBJECTS , TRANSPERANCY. THE QUALITY OF SPACE VARIES WITH TYPE OF OBJECT , COLOUR AND THE JUXTA POSITIONING OF THE OBJECTS. THESE ASPECTS OF INTERESTING SPACES IN A CONFINED SPACE WERE OBSERVED.
      • SPACE MONOLITH
      • HAS SPACE INFINITE WITH A BARE AND ORGANISATION OF OBJECTS LIKE GEOMETRICAL FORMS AND MATCH BOXES TO BE WORKED OUT.
      • IN THE ASSIGNMENT , DIFFERENT GEOMETRICAL FORMS TO BE ORGANISED IN A INFINITE SPACE WITH A BASE AS THE ONLY CONTROLLING FACTOR. ( IN ABOVE CONFINMENT HAS A LARGER FACTOR OF CONTROL). SO THE FORMS ORGANISED I SUCH A MANNER THAT THEY HOLD THE INTERESTING SPACES AROUND THEM , BETWEEN THEM.
      • IT MEANS AGAIN THE VISUAL RELATIONSHIP OF FORMS TO BE DEVELOPED WITH REFERENCE TO THE BASE. IT MEANS THE POWERFUL ORGANISATION OF THE FORM TO BE CREATED WITH THE HELP OF INTERESTING SPACE AROUND ON THE GROUND – WHEREBY ASPECT OF INFINITY DOES NOT BOTHER THE OVERALL FORMULATION OF FORMS OR IN OTHER WORDS , BOTH OF THEM BECOME COMPLEMENTARY TO EACH OTHER AS THE CREATED ORGANISATION OF FORMS HOLDS THE SPACE.
      • CARVING OUT SPACE
      • THIS ASSIGNMENT DEALS WITH THE DIFFERENT ASPECT OF SPACE HERE , THERE IS NO CONFINED SPACE OR INFINITY SPACE AS PREREQUISITE. HERE THERE IS A SOLID CUBE HAVING TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL OF CARVING OUT SPACE. HERE THE SPACE IS CREATED OUT OF A SOLID FORM ON THE FORM ON THE FOUR SIDES OF THE CUBE. SURFACES ARE TO BE CARVED OUT STAGE BY STAGE ,SO WE GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF PART TO WHOLE, ULTIMATELY ALL THE FOUR SIDES MUST MAKE A STATEMENT OF A CUBIC – ONE CUBIC.
      • SPACE ADEQUATE CARVING , THE INTERESTING SPACES – DEEPER SPACES , SHALLOW SPACE. AGAIN THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE SHAPES – SEEN ON THE FACE OF THE CUBE – CHARACTER OF PLANE AND VOID AND EACH ELEMENT OF SPACE , FORMS , SURFACE , LIGHT AND SHADE – EVERY ASPECT IS WITHIN THE FORM , NOTHING IS JUTTING OUT OF THE FORM.
      • SO THE METHODOLOGY TO BE FOLLOWED –
      • SENSE OF ARRANGEMENT
      • VISUAL THINKING AND CAPACITY OF VISUALISATION.

      • SCALE AND PROPORTION
      • IN CALULATING RIGHT KIND OF SENSITIVITY AND ATTITUDE TOWARDS – DESIGN PROCESS AND STUDIES – IS THE MAIN CONCEPT BEHIND – CONDUCTING BASIC DESIGN.
      • AS YOU ARE AWARE THAT BASIC DESIGN DEALS WITH THE “ VISUAL ASPECT” OF DESIGN AND INTERACTION WITH THE STUDENTS – UNDER SUBJECT CALLED – TOTAL ARCHITECTURE – HELPS STUDENTS DEVELOP INTELLECTUAL ASPECT INVOLVED IN DESIGN STUDIES.
      • VISUAL VALUES TO BE EXPLORED WITH THE PERCEPTION INVOLVING “EYE” AND TO BE REFINED INTELECTUALLY – WITH MIND , BRAIN , 5 SENSES , 5 BODY ORGANS TO ACT.THIS TOTAL ACT – WE CALL – “ COMPLETE PERCEPTION ”. FOR EXAMPLE – WHEN WE TRY AND PERCIEVE THE SPACE ,WE NOW KNOW THAT IT IS NOT MERE EMPTYNESS BUT THE SPACE IS ALWAYS ALONG WITH LIGHT AND COLOUR.
      • THIS NOTION WAS FEURTHER REFINED THAT SPACE IS ENERGY AND NOTHING COULD EXIST WITHOUT SPACE. ALSO SPACE IS MORE MEANINGFUL AND MORE RELEVENT WHEN IT IS OCCUPIED AND HENCE WE RESOLVED THAT ARCHITECTURAL SPACE IS OCCUPIED AND UNOCCUPIED . THIS IS HOW WE TRIED TO EVOLVE AND UNDERSTAND THE COMPREHENSIVE CONCEPT OF “SPACE”.
      • THIS WAS POSSIBLE DUE TO SENSITIVITY AND UNDERSTANDING THAT WE DEVELOPED DURING THE PROCESS OF “ GOING THROUGH EXERCISES”
      • WE REALISED THAT “ EVERY LINE HAS IT’S OWN TALE TO TELL”. LINES ARE EXPRESSIVBE. EVEN THE SMALL DOT ACTIVATES SURFACE / SPACE. WE TRIED TO UNDERSTAND THAT HOW EVERY MATERIAL WITHIT’S COLOUR , TEXURE, PATTERN , SHAPE – WHEN ARRANGED WITH ONE ANOTHER , THEY BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY. EVEVN GEOMETRICAL SHAPES WITH DIFFERENT CHARACTERS ( LIKE ROUND , TRIANGULAR) COULD BE JUXTAPOSED AGAINST EACH OTHER , SO THEY CAN TALK TOGETHER ( i.e. RELATIONSHIP). IN ALL ABOVE EXERCISES , WE EXPLORED THE VISUAL MEANING ( i.e. VISUALLY CORRECT READABILITY AND INTELECTUALLY CORRECT CONCEPTUAL ACCEPTABILITY ) OF MANY SITUATIONS AND EMERGED VOCABULARY – LIKE PROXIMITY , HARMONY , BALANCE , MOTION , DYNAMIC , STATIC ALSO UNITY , TOGETHERNESS , CONTINUITY , SEQUENTIALITY , RELATIONSHIP , EMPHASIS ALSO FORMAL , ORDER , INFORMAL , RANDOM , INTERESTING , FLOWING SPACES , TRAPPED SPACES.
      • IN ALL ABOVE , WORDS WERE KNOWN MAY BE FEW UNKNOWN TO US . BUT WE TRIED TO UNDERSTAND AND DEVELOP THE SENSITIVITY – THE VISUAL MEANING. WE ALSO UNDERSTOOD THAT THEIR MEANING – INTERPRETATION SLIGHTLY VARIES FROM SITUATION TO SITUATION. IN SHORT WE TRIED TO DEVELOP VISUAL GRAMMER AND VOCABULARY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY -- VISUAL THINKING.
      • YOU MUST HAVE REALISED THAT THESE WORDS , GRAMMER HELPS YOU DEVELOP OVERALL SENSITIVITY WHICH FINALLY PROMPTS YOU TO INTERPRETE THE SITUATION CORRECTLY AND ENCOURAGES YOU TO GO ON REFINING THE SITUATION TO MAKE IT MORE AND MORE INTERESTING.
      • IN THIS TOTAL PROCESS , MATHEMETICS IS NOT AT ALL INVOLVED , NOTHING CAN BE RESOLVED PERMANANTLY , WHATEVER EMERGES AS PERCEPTUAL NOTIONS DEPENDING UPON PERTICULAR SITUATION THAT YOU CREATE, AND INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY TO DO SO , UNDERSTAND SO.
      • SO THE VISUAL THINKING INTERPRETATION , APPRECIATION , ASSESMENT , JUDGEMENT AND DECISIONS ARE NOTIONAL , THEY NEED NOT BE MATHEMETICAL , THEY NEED NOT BE MEASURABLE TECHNICALLY BUT ONLY VISUALLY AS PERCEIVE , PERCEIVED CORRECTLY AND ACCEPTABLE INTELECTUALLY.
      • NOW WE WILL BE DEALING WITH THE TOPIC CALLED “ SCALE AND PROPORTION”. THESE WORDS ARE MEASURABLE BUT WHAT WE WILL BE STUDYING IS THEIR NOTIONAL PERCEPTUAL ASPECTS AND VALUES AS OVERALL SENSITIVITY.
      • SENSE OF SCALE AND PROPORTION , WE EXPERIENCE EVERYDAY.
      • IS THERE ANY SENSE OF PROPORTION ?
      • DON’T BLOW THIS ISSUE OUT OF PROPORTION.
      • WHAT IS THE SCALE OR MAGNITUDE ?
      • EVERYTHING IS ON A SMALLER / LARGER SCALE.
      • THESE ARE SOME OF THE LINGUISTIC – EXPRESSIONS WITHOUT THE ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS. THE SENSE OF PROPORTION AND SCALE WHICH WE DEVELOP OUT OF OUR EXPERIENCE , SENSE OF COMPARISON , COMMON SENSE , LOGIC , REASON AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE FACULTY OF MEMORY.
      • THIS SENSE OF SCALE AND PROPORTION IS THE PART AND PARCEL OF OUR INTELLECT , SENSORY i.e. OVERALL HUMANIAN – FACULTIES WE SEE , PERCEIVE , FEEL i.e. VISUALLY READ CORRECTLY AND INTELECTUALLY ACCEPT CORRECTLY.
      • IN BASIC DESIGN ,WE DEVELOP AND ARTICULATE , ORIENT THIS SENSITIVITY TOWARDS DESIGN STUDIES PERTINENT TO ARCHTECTURE. SO ALL OUR EARLIER TOPICS – STUDIES AND NOW THE TOPIC – SCALE AND PROPORTION ARE WITH REFERENCE TO SPACE , FORM AND SURFACES.
      • WE HAVE DISCUSSED EARLIER THAT ALL THIS SENSITIVITY IS WITHIN US THAT IS WHY CHILDREN ARE PROMPTED TO PLAY “BHATUKALI” UNDER THE SHELTER OF THEIR OWN MAKING WITH APPROPPRIATE VOLUME TO SUIT THEIR BODY AND MIND. IT IS ACTUAL SENSE OF PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SCALE AND PROPORTION.
      • ALL HUMAN ACTIVITIES IF TO BE MEANINGFUL AND TO BE EFFECTIVE THEN THEY NEED TO BE IN THE SPACE WITH APPROPRIATE PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SCALE AND PROPORTION.
      • THE HUMAN LIVING AND ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE IN THE SPACE AND MOST OF THE TIME ALONG WITH THE SUPPORTING ENVIRONMENT AND OBJECTS AND THEY ALSO NEED TO BE IN APPROPRIATE SCALE AND PROPORTION.
      • SCALE AND PROPORTION IS BASIC – FUNDAMENTAL – VISUAL ASPECT OF ENVIRONMENT AND PRODUCTS IN IT.
      • IN NATURE ,TINY LITTLE ANT TO THE DINOSOUR – THERE IS TREMENDOUS VARIATION OF SIZE, SHAPE AND FORM.
      • DINASOURS HUGENESS ( MONSTER LIKE LOOK ) GETS ARTICULATED DUE TO DYNAMICS OF SWIFT MOVEMENTS – SWIFTNESS.
      • ELEPHANTS OR HIPPOPOTAMUS OR SUMO WRESTLER – VOLUMOUS FORM IS JUSTIFIED LOOKING AT THEIR CALM , QUITE , BUT ENERGETIC , BODY LANGUAGE THAT JUSTIFIES THEIR VOLUME.
      • KANGARU – DEER – THEIR IMMACULATE BODY LITERALLY CUT THE SPACE WHILE RUNNING.
      • COBRA – IT MAKES IT’S OWN WAY THROUGH ITS LINEAR FORM ( SWIFTNESS).
      • IN MAN MADE ENVIRONMENT .
      • AS SOON AS THIS STUDIO IS DESIGNED 10 TIMES THE PRESENT VOLUME – FOR 30 STUDENTS , IT WOULD BE OUT OF PROPORTION.
      • AS SOON AS THE BATHROOM WHERE WE TAKE OUR DAILY BATH BECOMES 10 TIMES THE NORMAL SIZE – IT IS OUT OF SCALE OR PROPORTION.
      • GOLDEN BANGLE WITH LARGE SIZED – HIRA – LEGGY MODELS.
      • IF YOU ARE DESIGNING A BULLAK-CART AND WHEELS ARE LARGER THAN CARTS – THEY ARE OUT OF SCALE AND PROPORTION.
      • SIZE OF THE DOOR AND FRAME , THE KNOB / SECURITY BARS OF THE WINDOW.
      • 2D TO 3D FORMS , VOLUMES / SMALL MASS – LARGE MASS.
      • YOUR COLLEGE BUILDING AND ENTRANCE FOYER AT THE GROUND FLOOR.
      • BNCA COURT
      • ENTRANCE GATE 40’ HIGH WITH 5’ COMPOUND WALL.( JAIL)
      • SO ALL ABOVE SENSITIVITY OF SCALE AND PROPORTION IS DEVELOPED ALONG WITH THE EXPERIENCE / ATTITUDE / MEMORY ALSO UTILITY FUNCTIONAL ASPECTS PLAY IMPORTANT ROLE ALONG WITH THE VISUAL ASPECT. MANY TIMES IT IS NOT ONLY FUNCTION TO BE TAKEN CARE , BUT THE VISUAL ASPECT ALSO BECOMES IMPORTANT.
      • APPROPRIATENESS BALANCE RELATIONSHIP
      • ADEQUECY TOGETHERNESS
      • CUTENESS UNITY , HARMONY
      • WE HAVE DEVELOPED THE SENSE OF PROPORTION ALONG WITH EXERCISES WE TRIED TO UNDERSTAND THROUGH MATHEMATICAL MANIPULATION – UNCONCIOUSLY LIKE GRID , MULTOPLE DIMENTIONS , SIZES , SHAPES , FORMS ETC.
      • CORBUSIER DEVELOPED A THEORY OF MODULAR ……
    • STUDIES IN -- BASIC DESIGN CONCEPTUALISED AND CARRIED OUT BY -- PROF. ARUN OGALE TOPIC – STABILE AND MOBILE COMPILED AND PRODUCED BY – AR. SUVARNA VAZE BASIC DESIGN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CELL
      • TOPIC TEXT
      • TOPIC EXERCISE BRIEF
      • TOPIC EXCERCISE MECHANISM
      • STUDENTS WORK
      • STABILE ANE MOBILE
      • STUDENTS ARE EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITY OF WORKING OUT A FORM / OBJECT OUT OF MATERIALS THAT THEY SELECT. BASIC IDEA OF WORKING OUT THIS FORM / OBJECT IS TO LOCATE THE SAME IN THE SPACE WHEREBY IT ENHANCES THE QUALITY OF SPACE.
      • IN THIS EXERCISE “THIS WORKING OUT” HAS A REFERENCE OF EXISTING “SPACE” WHICH IS LOCATED WITHIN COLLEGE PREMISES , WHICH STUDENTS EXPERIENCE EVERY DAY.
      • SO THERE EXISTS A QUALITY OF SPACE , QUALITY OF LIGHT ALSO MATERIALS, TEXTURE , COLOUR , PATTERN ALSO STRUCTURE , ALSO EXISTING SCALE AND PROPORTION. THESE VISUAL ASPECTS ARE ALREADY EXISTING , BUT REMEMBER THEY CHANGE MORNING TILL EVENING DUE TO QUALITY OF LIFE. ONE NEEDS TO STUDY THIS CHANGING PATTERN.
      • IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE VISUAL ASPECT – FIRST TIME THE STUDENTS ARE INTRODUCED TO PURPOSE , SURROUNDS AND FUNCTIONAL VALUED IN BASIC DESIGN. THE COLLEGE PREMISES , EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES, HUMAN ASPECTS LIKE MOVING , MOVEMENTS , LOITERING AROUND , ENTRY , EXIT , GROUPING .THERE ALSO EXISTS A CHANGING PATTERN.
      • THE EXISTING VISUAL ASPECT IS STATIC BUT THE QUALITY OF LIGHT ALSO SEASONAL VARIATION – CHANGE THE SAME. THE HUMAN ASPECT – IS CHANGING EVERY MINUTE.
      • SO PHYSICAL ASPECT – LIKE SURROUNDS
      • VISUAL ASPECT LIKE -- EXISTING SPACE AND IT’S APPEARANCE IN TOTALITY.
      • FUNCTIONAL ASPECT – HUMAN EXISTANCE WITH ACTIVITIES EMERGING OUT OF FUNCTION AND FINALLY THE PSYCOLOGICAL ASPECT – THE MIND.
      • SO HOW TO DEAL WITH SUCH AN ASSIGNMENT ? APPROPRIATE SCALED MODEL – REPLICA OF EXISTING SPACE IS PREPARED TO “VISUALISE” THE SPACE AND APPROPRIATE PLACEMENT OF FORM OR OBJECT WITH REFERENCE TO PHYSICAL , FUNCTIONAL , VISUAL AND PSYCOLOGICAL ASPECTS.
      • WHAT IS STABILE / MOBILE ?
      • STABILE – UNSTABLE , STATIC , DYNAMIC , FIRM -- MOVING / MOVEMENT.
      • STABILE , STABILITATE , STABILIZATION , STABILITY , STABILIZED , STABILIZER
      • ALSO
      • FIRMNESS , SUBSTANTIALITY, PERMANANCE , STRENGTH , RELIABILITY , SAFE , SECURED , CONFIDENCE.
      • MOBILE – CHANGEABLE , EXPRESSIVE, MOVING IN ANY DIRECTION , MOVEMENT UNCERTAINITY , FLEXIBILITY , ROTATING, TWISTING .
      • STABILE / MOBILE – IMAGE , WORK OF ART/ OBJECT OF ART / PIECE OF ART, REPRESENTATION , PASTICHE
      • MOST IMPORTANT SUITABLE MEANING FOR THIS KIND OF AN ASSIGNMENT THAT TOO AT THIS STAGE OF LEARNING PROCESS COULD BE -- WORK OF ART , PIECE OF ART –WORK , IMAGE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE EXPRESSION : WHICH SUITS AND FACILITATES THE EXPLORATION OF HUMAN ELEMENT / PSYCOLOGY WITH REFERENCE TO EXISTING PHYSICAL ENVIRON AND FUNCTIONAL ASPECT.
      • SO HOW DO WE ANALIZE THESE ASPECTS
      • PERCEPTION
      • PSYCOLOGY
      • MIND
      • PERCEPTION
      • EYE
      • NOSE
      • EAR
      • TOUCH
      • EYE
      • NICE VARIETY
      • BEAUTIFUL VARIABLE
      • ELEGANT BRILLIENT
      • MARVELOUS AMAZING
      • EFFECTIVE
      • LIGHT / DARK
      • STATIC / DYNAMIC / FLOWING / MOVEMENT
      • CALM / QUITE / EXCITING
      • EYE CATCHING / ACTIVE
      • DRAMATIC
      • STUNNING
      • STRIKING
      • STIMULATING
      • EMOTIONAL
      • SENSUAL
      • PSYCOLOGICAL MIND
      • INSPIRING SOUND AGRESSIVE
      • REFRESHING VIBRATIONS RUSHING
      • JOYFUL TREMOURS
      • RELAXING SHAKING
      • RELIEF PENDULUM
      • FRIENDLY STRIKING
      • VULGARITY EXPANDING
      • GLOOMY RECEDING
      • SAD ADVANCING
      • LINEAR , SPARKLING , VOLUMOUS , TRANSPERENT , OBLIQUE , ILLUSION , RADIATION , GLITTER , DAZZELING , BLICKERING , BEAMING , NEUTRAL , ABSTRACTION.
      • THESE HUMAN SENSITIVITIES ARE TO BE STUDIED WITH RESPECT TO
      • -- MAKING OR WORKING OUT OBJECT OR FORM
      • -- EXISTING SPACE , PHYSICAL AND VISUAL ASPECT
      • -- HUMAN ASPECT / FUNCTIONAL / PSYCOLOGICAL ASPECT.
      • THE IDEA OF MAKING A SMALLER SCALED MODEL COMPOSED TO THE EXISTING SPACE – TO JUDGE AND PERCEIVE – APPROPRIATELY SEALED PROPORTIONED “ OBJECT” AND TO LOCATE THE SAME IN SUCH A MANNER THAT
      • ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF SPACE
      • WITH REFERENCE TO FUNCTION AND HUMAN ASPECT SUPPORTING THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT WITH THE OBIENCE OF VISUAL ASPECT.
      • WE ARE EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITY OF WORKING OUT A FORM OR AN OBJECT OUT OF SELECTED MATERIALS. THIS FORM COULD BE AN ABSTRACT IDEA TO BE PLACED IN A “SPACE”. IN FACT THE FRAME TO BE WORKED OUT TO SUIT AN EXISTING SPACE , SELECTED FOR SUCH SPACE.
      • SO THE WORKING OUT FORM OR OBJECT HAS A REFERENCE OF SPACE , SO SELECTED. THE SPACE IS TO BE LOCATED AND SELECTED OUT OF OUR EARIER EXPERIENCES DEALING WITH THE EXERCISES.
      • SO WE HAVE SELECTED A SPACE WHICH HAS A FUNCTION OR IT IS RELATED TO MAIN / BASIC FUNCTIONS. IT HAS MATERIAL SCOPE , LANDSCAPE , COLOUR SCOPE , ALSO TEXTURE., SO VISUAL ASPECTS ARE ALREADY EXISTING AND APART FROM THESE ASPECTS , MOST IMPORTANTLY , THERE IS A FUNCTION OR UTILITY VALUE – EXISTING.
      • VISUAL ASPECT , ALSO STATIC AND DYNAMIC.
      • HUMAN ELEMENT IN THE SPACE
      • NATURAL ELEMENTS IN THE SPACE
      • QUALITY OF LIGHT , SHADE , SUN , RAIN , COLD , WARM , CHANGING PATTERN OF THE NATURE.
      • SPACE
      • SO EARLER , WE TRIED TO UNDERSTAND THE “ SPACE “ AROUND US . THE EMPTYNESS IN INFINITY.
      • THIS SPACE ITSELF IS THE “ DYNAMIC ENERGY “ THROUGH WHICH THE SUN , THE EARTH , EVEN THE NATURE – OPERATE IN COMPLETE HARMONY.
      • EVEN IN TIME WHICH IS PYSICAL AND PSYCOLOGICAL IS NOTHIG BUT MODULATION OF “ SPACE ”.
      • IF THE MAN HAS TO SURVIVE WITH THE BRAIN , THE MIND ALSO WITH THE CAPACITY TO CONCEPTUALISE -- THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF HUMAN LIFE AT STAKE -- THAT IS FOR SURVIVAL – IS MEMORY .
      • THIS MEMORY IS ALSO BASED ON “ TIME “ i.e. SPACE – THAT IS WHY THE MEMORY HAS THE CAPACITY TO CARRY FORWARD. SO THERE ARE -- YESTERDAY , TODAY AND TOMORROW. THE MEMORY IS NOTHING BUT FLOWING ENERGY i. e. SPACE.
      • ACTIVATION OF 5 SENSES -- HENCE JOY . BRAIN , MIND WORKING SO PHYSICAL PROGRESS OF HUMAN BEING – ALL THIS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO CARRYING FORWARD – CAPACITY OF THE MEMORY.
      • IF NO MEMORY – THE WHOLE LIFE IS IRRELEVENT.
      • TODAY THIS CAPACITY IS MISUSED BY THE MAN , WHATEVER IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE CARRY FORWARD IS GETTING CARRY FORWARD – SO HUMAN LIFE HAS BECOME MORE AND MORE MISERABLE.
      • NUDITY – IN ITS TRUE SENSE IS BEAUTIFUL , YOU WILL REALIZE THIS ON SEEING ANY PAINTING OF A SENSIBLE PAINTER.
      • BUT TODAY SEE ANY CHANNEL ON TV AND WHAT YOU SEE IS VULGARITY. THIS TASTE IN MEMORY IS GETTING CARRY FORWARD SO THE ‘VIKRUT ‘ MIND AND HENCE THE ‘ VIKRUT MANOVRUTI’ – THE OUTCOME -- A TERRIBLE SOCIAL PROBLEM.
      • TAKE POLITICS , CRICKET , EVEN EDUCATION IN ANY FIELD AROUND CARRY FORWARDING UNDESERVING MEMORIES HAVE CREATED A HAVOC.
      • ACTUALLY , THE EMERGED LIFE OUT OF ‘COSMIC ENERGY IS ‘ WHOLESOME’ COMPLETE – IN TOTALITY. BRAIN , MIND , MEMORY , SENSES , THE WHOLE BODY , IT’S FUNCTIONS – VARIOUS CAPACITIES FOR FLOWERING LIFE -- THEY ARE THERE WITHIN AND A TOTAL SUPPORT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM OUTSIDE i.e. NATURE , BUT WE MISUSE THESE CAPACITIES AND MAKE LIFE MISERABLE – EGO.
      • SO FINALLY THIS VITAL DYNAMIC ENERGY SUSTAINS US. SO IN MODERN DISCOURSES ALSO IT IS UNDERSTOOD AS THE NEED FOR MAN TO LIVE IN AN COMPLETE HARMONY WITH THE ENVIRONMENT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WITH A PERFECT UNDERSTANDING WITH THE BODY AND ITS CAPACITITES – INTERNAL ENVIRONMENT. – THE BRAIN , THE MIND , THE SENSES , THE MEMORY , ETC.
      • SUCH IS THE DYNAMICS OF THIS SPACE – i.e. ENERGY WHICH MODULATES THE POSITIVE NOTIONS BODYLY AND PSYCOLOGICALLY.
      • THE CONCEPT OF SPACE WAS EXPLORED BY THE SCIENTISTS , TECHNOLOGISTS , WITH THE METHOD OF EMPERICAL INVESTIGATIONS.– BASED ON EXPERIENCE.
      • THE PHYLOSOPHERS , METAPHYSICIANS , NOW ASTROPHYSICIANS , ARTISTS AND SOCIOLOGIST – DID IT THROUGH PERENIAL QUESTIONING AND SPECULATIONS – LOGIC.
      • THE ARTS , ARCHITECTURE , SCULPTURE , PAINTING , MUSIC , DANCE – ENCLOSE , EMBODY AND EVOKE -- SPACE ( ACTIVITY). POETRY CREATES EDIFICES OF SPACE AS A SPATIAL SITUATION AND EVOKE THE EXPERIENCE OF OUTER AND INNER SPACE.
      • AS SUCH THE CONCERN WITH SPACE COULD NOT BE DISASSOCIATED FROM THE CONCERN – i.e. CONCEPT OF TIME.
      • SPACE IS ENERGY.
      • SPACE ALSO INCLUDES TIME AND LIFE.
      • SO FINALLY “ SPACE “ HAS TREMENDOUS CAPACITY TO ASSIMILATE ANY THING AND EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE AS ALL THAT HAS EMERGED FROM THAT SPACE.
      • SO WE RESOLVED THAT ‘ SPACE IS THE ESSENCE OF ARCHITECTURE ’.
      • SPACE , TIME , LIFE ( EXPERIENCE , EXPRESSION)

      • TOPIC TEXT
      • TOPIC EXERCISE BRIEF
      • TOPIC EXCERCISE MECHANISM
      • STUDENTS WORK
      • NATURE , FORM , PRODUCT DESIGN
      • WHAT IS NATURE ?
      • NATURE IS ALL – MATTER AND ENERGY ESPECIALLY IN ITS ESSENTIAL ORIGINAL FORM.
      • IT IS COMPREHENSIVE ENERGY OF 5 ELEMENTS IN TOTALITY WHATEVER THAT EMERGES AROUND US THEREBY.
      • THE NATURE INCLUDES EVERY THING FROM THE UNIVERSE TO SUB-ATOMIC. PLANTS , ANIMALS , MINERALS , ALL NATURAL RESOURCES , EVENTS LIKE HURRICANE TO EARTH QUAKES.
      • IMPORTANTLY – THE GRAVITY , ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCES , WEAK AND STRONG NUCLEAR FIELDS – THESE IMPORTANT FORCES MAKE NATURE AND SUN IS THE ETERNAL ENERGY.
      • WHY WE GET INSPIRED BY NATURE ?
      • ITS AESTHETICS
      • ORIGINAL GENUINE BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS -- FULL OF MERITS – EVERYTHING WORKS WITH LOGIC , REASON AND SCIENCE , NO AMBIGUITY , NO ARTIFICIALITY.
      • STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS WITH BASIC PRINCIPLES.
      • ALL SYSTEMS ARE AMAZINGLY IMMUNE.
      • NATURE HAS INBUILT SELF REPAIRING ASPECT.
      • PROCESS – PROGRESSION.
      • ADAPTIVE.
      • COMPLEX , SIMPLE.
      • LEARNABLE.
      • ROBUST , SOFT , TENDER QUALITIES , PROPERTIES.
      • SELF REPRODUCTIVITY – OR OTHERWISE.
      • EVOLUTIONARY – ASPECT .
      • ALL ABOVE – INFORMATIVE / INSPIRATIVE / INNOVATIVE.
      • PERCEIVING NATURE
      • ITS FORM , STRUCTURE , FORCES , MOVEMENT , POINTS ,LINES , COLOUR , TEXTURE , PATTERN , ITS PROGRESSION , GROWTH , LINEAR , VOLUMUS FOLIAGE , THICK , THIN , TRANSPERENT
      • FREE END , FREE INDEPENDENT , CREEPING , GRADUAL , GROWING , DISCILPINE , FORMAL , RANDOM , WILD.
      • NATURE IS VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE AT THE SAME TIME . BECAUSE OF ITS “INVISIBLE” , WE CAN SEE THE OUTER SKIN BUT FORCES OF NATURE WORK LARGELY “ INVISIBLY”.
      • THE HEART BEATS , THE LUNGS BREATHE , THOUGHT MAY COME AND GO , BLOOD CIRCULATES , OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WORKS – AWAY . EVERY THING IS PART OF NATURE.
      • SO NATURE DOES NOT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF , BUT ITS EXPRESSIONS MOST OF THE TIME ARE SILENT – BUT THEY ARE NICE TO LOOK AT ( SEE) , HEAR , TOUCH , TASTE , SMELL.
      • WE CAN FEEL NATURE , PSYCOLOGICALLY GET JOY.
      • THERE IS AN ORGANIC – ARCHITECTONIC SYSTEM CONSISTING OF FOUNDATION ( ROOTS) , COLUMNS ( TRUNK) AND SPATIAL NETWORK OF BRANCHES AND FOLIAGE AND MANY SUCH DERIVABLE SYSTEMS.
      • SOLAR POWERED TRANSPORTATION IN TREES AS MEANS TO SILENTLY MOVE TONNES OF WATER UP HUNDREDS OF FEET. VEINS AS SYSTEMS OF TUNNELS – SUCKING NUTRIOUS FLUID AND RUSHING UP TO EVERY PART – RIGHT UP TO THE MOST EXTREME LEAF –TOP. THIS SYSTEM SINCE THE BEGINNING OF WORLD STILL WORKING TODAY EFFICIENTLY.
      • ABSORBING CAPACITY OF REQUIRED PART OF LIGHT AND AIR TO SURVIVE.
      • STRUCTURE AND STRUCTURING OF THE BODY FOR TALL , SHORT , SPREADING , CREEPING , HOPPING , CLIMBING , FREE STANDING , CANTILEVER + ALL KINDS OF STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS ARE PROVIDED IN THE NATURE.
      • ACCORDING OT THE INSIGHTS IN TO THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION -- ALL NATURE – LIFE AND NATURE , FORM – EMERGED FROM SIMPLE BASIC STRUCTURE. DIRECT / INDIRECT / POINT / UNIFORMLY DISTIBUTED / CANTILEVER / LATERAL FORCES – ALL KINDS OF LOADS AND ITS DISTRIBUTION IS SYSTEMATICALLY WORKED OUT IN NATURE. ( BANIYAN TO COCONUT TO INFANT PLANT).
      • UTILITY ASPECT – IS ANOTHER AMAZING PHENOMENON. EACH AND EVERY PART IS USEFUL.
      • SINCE THE LIFE IS AN EXPANSIVE FORCE , FERTILITY , REPRODUCTIVITY – ARE INBUILT ASPECT OF NATURE ALONG WITH DECAY AND DEATH. NATURAL AND BRIDING REPRODUCTIVE POSSIBILITIES.
      • AESTHETICS
      • ALL KINDS OF AESTHETIC VALUES – EMERGED OUT OF NATURAL SHAPES , FORMS AND STRUCTURE. FLOWERS ALLOW PLANTS TO TAKE THEIR CLAIM TO COLOUR.
      • INTERESTINGLY THESE AESTHETIC VALUES ARE EVER UNFOLDING AND CHANGING SEQUENTIALLY TILL THE FINAL DESTRUCTION. THESE CHANGES ARE DEPENDING ON NATURAL CYCLE OF SEASONS AND TOTALLY CONTROLLED BY THE SUN – ENERGY.
      • LANGUAGE OF NATURAL SHAPES AND FORMS – WE HAVE TRANSFORMED
      • INTO AN ART –
      • PLAIN -- PLUMP
      • LOW -- TALL
      • NARROW -- SLENDER
      • FAT -- THIN
      • MOVEMENT – UPWARDS , DOWNWARDS
      • GEOMETRICAL , RANDOM – SHAPES AND FORMS
      • MANY OTHER ASPECTS , CONTINUOUSLY INSPIRE US AND THEREBY FACILITATE THE EMERGENCE OF NOT ONLY VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS BUT ALSO LIFE SUPPORTING -- ENHANCING “ FORMATS WHICH GIVE QUALITY TO OUR LIFE AND FINALLY THE PURE JOY.
      • AND FINALLY -- WE THOUGH ARE THE PART OF NATURE , WE ARE AT ONE AND THE SAME TIME
      • INHABITANTS
      • OBSERVERS
      • ADMIRERS
      • JOY SEEKERS
      • USERS
      • CONSUMERS
      • SPOKESMAN
      • AND SO ON AND FINALLY – ALSO
      • DESTROYERS OF NATURE TOO
      • IF WE STUDY THE HISTORY OF HUMAN EVOLUTION , THE INSPIRATION FROM NATURE PLAYED AN IMPORTANT RULE ( AND IT IS INVITABLE AND IMPLIED) AS WE ARE THE PART OF NATURE. THIS INSPIRATION LEADS US TO ARRANGE , ORGANISE AND PUT OUR LIFE – IN ORDER SO THAT IT BECOMES MORE AMD MORE MEANINGFUL.
      • LOUIS KAHN , A WORLD – WELL KNOWN ARCHITECT SAID THAT –
      • “ DESIGN IS
      • TO PLAN , TO ORGANISE TO ORDER ,
      • TO RELATE AND TO CONTROL ” .
      • IN SHORT IT SIGNIFIES A HUMAN DESIRE / NEED AND QUALITIES OF MAN’S THINKING AND DOING.
      • CHARLES CORREA MAKES A STATEMENT THAT –
      • “ DESIGN IS LIKE REVEALING TRUTH ”
      • IF WE CAREFULLY GO THROUGH THESE STATEMENTS , WE REALISE THAT -- MEANING , PURPOSE AND CONTENTS OF THIS WORD “ DESIGN ” EMERGE ONLY AFTER GOING THROUGH SOME KIND OF PROCESS. ( i.e. TO PLAN , ORGANISE , IMPART ORDER , RELATE , CO-RELATE) OR PROCESS OF REVEALING “TRUTH ”.
      • IF ONE UNFOLDS -- THE MYSTERY OF “CREATION” i.e. UNIVERSE – ALSO HISTORY OF HUMAN EVOLUTION , ONE FINDS THAT THIS PROCESS OF DESIGN IS – ON – SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE “ UNIVERSE “. WE CAN SEE HOW WISELY AND SKILLFULLY HUMAN LIFE IS PLANNED , ORGANISED WITH ORDER. ALSO IT IS RELATED , CO RELATED WITH NATURAL CONTROLS. SPAN COVERING LIFE TO DEATH IS A COMPLETE WHOLESOME PACKAGE OF DESIGN.
      • TO GET OVERALL SENSE OF WHAT IS DESIGN , WE MAY NOTIONALLY CONCLUDE THAT DESIGN IS A CREATION. IT EMERGES OUT OF SOME SENSIBLE PROCESS. IT MEANS THAT THE PROCESS TAKES YOU UP TO A POINT FROM THAT POINT ONWARDS EMERGES – CREATION – ( BIG BANG ).
      • EVERY DAY WE GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS TO SEE THAT OUR LIFE BECOMES MORE AND MORE MEANINGFUL , EFFECTIVE , INTERESTING AND JOYFUL.
      • TAKE AN EVENT AT YOUR HOME. YOU TELL YOUR MOTHER THAT YOUR FRIENDS ARE COMING FOR THE DINNER.
      • SO WE ADOPT THIS PROCESS CONCIOUSLY OR UNCONCIOUSLY AS IT IS IN OUR NERVES AND CREATION BECOMES INTERESTING , LESS INTERESTING , EFFECTIVE , BEAUTIFUL , LESS BEAUTIFUL – ALL SUCH RESULTS ARE DEPENDING UPON INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE , CAPACITY , ABILITY TO REFINE , FINALLY TO CREATE AND SO ON.
      • AFTER HAVING A LOOK AT THE NOTION – OF DESIGNING AS AN OVERALL IMPORTANT SENSITIVITY UNDERSTANDING AND ATTITUDE , IF WE GO IN FURTHER DETAILS OF THIS PROCESS , WE REALISE THAT THERE ARE TWO IMPORTANT WORD CONNECTED WITH PROCESS – ONE IS USE / USER / USAGE – IS UTILITY VALUE.
      • SECOND IS FUNCTION / FUNCTIONAL -- IS OPERATIVE VALUE.
      • MOST OF THE TIME , THE USERS – i.e. UTILITY VALUE IS AVAILABLE IN THE NATURE ( LIKE ENERGY / VEGETATION )
      • SOLAR – ELECRICITY AIR – BREATHE / PRANAYAM
      • WATER – ELECTRICITY / DRINKING. MIND / BRAIN / 5 SENSES – ARE USER.
      • MAN ALSO INVENTS ( FROM NATURE ) OR PRODUCES SUCH USERS LIKE -- ELECTRICAL CURRENT (BULB) , BUT ALL SUCH USERS NEED TO FET CONVERTED INTO OPERATIVE VALUE TO SEE THAT THEY BECOME FUNCTIONAL – SO MAN CAN ADOPT FOR ENHANCING THE QUALITY OF LIFE .
      • SO WE CAN SAY THAT DESIGN IS THE PROCESS OF CONVERTING UTILITY VALUE AND THIS PROCESS GETS RATIONALLY UNFOLDED THROUGH THE SEQUENTIAL NOTIONS OF –
      • CONCEPTUAL
      • PHYSICAL
      • VISUAL
      • PSYCOLOGICAL
      • SCIENCE
      • TECHNOLOGICAL
      • FINALLY ,
      • ENVIRONMENTAL
      • OUT OF THIS PROCESS EMERGES – CREATION i.e. DESIGN.
      • GOING BACK TO UTILITY VALUES AND OPERATIVE VALUES , THE VARIED PROCESSES CAN BE ADOPTED.
      • IMPARTING OPERATIVE VALUE TO UTILITY VALUE – LIKE RAW MEAT – BAKED MEAT -- BOILED MEAT.
      • EXAMPLE -- WATER , WIND – USER – BUT THROUGH OPERATIVE VALUES WE PRODUCE ELECTRICITY.
      • EVOLVING OPERATIVE VALUE OUT OF UTILITY VALUE LIKE TEA LEAVES , MOHACHI PHULE.
      • EXPLORING ( TRANSFORMING ) OPERATIVE VALUES OUT OF USER VALUE. LIKE PRE HISTORIC MAN USED STONE AS A WEAPON.
      • FINALLY , WE CAN CONCLUDE THAT DESIGN IS A COMPREHENSIVE -- PROCESS INVOLVING ALL ABOVE ASPECTS FOR ARRIVING AT RATIONAL DECISION TO CREATE FOR ENHANCING THE QUALITY OF LIFE –
      • THAT IS LIKE REVEALING TRUTH -- CORREA
      • THAT IS SIGNIFYING HUMAN DESIRE – KAHN
      • THAT IS PLAN TO ORGANISE – PUT IN ORDER RELATE OR CREATE.
      • WE TRIED TO EXPLORE , STUDY AND DEVELOP DIFFERENT SENSITIVITIES LIKE
      • LINES , THEIR EXPRESSIONS.
      • MATERIALS – PHYSICAL AND VISUAL PROPERTIES.
      • MATERIALS / GEOMETRICAL SHAPES – THEIR ARRANGEMENTS i.e. SENSE OF ARRANGEMENT.
      • SHAPE GRAMMER IN CHINEASE PUZZLE – TANGRAMS.
      • CONCEPTS – MAXIMUM FROM MINIMAL – VISTAR.
      • 2 D TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO 3 D.
      • SPACE OCCUPIED / OCCUPIED / DIVISION / CARVING.
      • 3 D COMPOSITION.
      • ALL ABOVE EXERCISES MOTIVATED THROUGH ABSTRACTIONS FOR SENSING THE “ESSENCE “ – LIKE SENSE OF ARRANGEMENT , ORGANISATION.
      • WE TRIED TO UNDERSTAND THROUGH VISUAL EXPERIENCE THE NOTIONS LIKE PROXIMITY , HARMONY , BALANCE MOTION.
      • ALSO – UNITY , COMPACT , RELATIONSHIP , EMPHASISE
      • ALSO – ORDER , FORMAL , RANDOM , INTERESTING SPACES , LIGHT, SHADOWS ETC.
      • WE TRIED TO DEVELOP A SENSE OF VISUALLY CORRECT READABILITY AND INTELLECTUALLY CORRECT ACCEPTABILITTY i. e. DECISION MAKING . THE WHOLE PROCESS I TERM IT AS “ VISUAL THINKING “.
    • WITH THE PROCESS OF – VISUAL EXPERIENCE THE CAPACITY OF CORRECT VISUAL READABILITY AND INTELLECTUALLY REACHING THE FINER POINT – WE NOW STUDIED THE NATURE WITH ALL ITS ASPECTS AND TRIED TO ANALISE THEM AND WHATEVER IS STRIKING – ANALISED AND ABSTRACTED FURTHER TO TRNSFORM THE SAME INTO SOME PRODUCT CONNECTED WITH LIGHT SOURCE OR CONTAINER – HAVING FUNCTIONAL VALUE.
