What are the kinds of change in art, and how is change used in art?
There are different kinds of change, and some of them are simple. There are obvious changes, like something being one thing, and then that same object being a completely different object.
Then there are varying amounts of change, like one object being one way, and then it changing a small amount over time, or distance, or , until it becomes a different object.
When creating any kind of art this way, it is assumed, that greater forms of change are more noticeable, and therefore, that change will catch the eye first.
For example, often artists use the color wheel in painting. With the color wheel, as you move around it,
the farther around you compare colors, the more different they are until you reach near the other side.
In this example, let us assume that, in a painting, we use red and orange next to each other in one location. In another location, we use red next to green.
We can assume that, according to the color wheel, red to orange has less change than red to green.
So, therefore, according to this idea, the eye will first go to the area containing the red/green, because that area is more different than the red/orange.
The more change, the greater the attention.
This can be
assumed to work with anything, like shapes, value, or varying curves, and not just color.
But this is just one form of change, which is also called Delta (the word is spelled with a capital 'D', or also Δ)
There is a completely different form of change called delta (the word is spelled with a lower case 'd', or also 𝛿)
if you compare two images, and allow your eye to move from image to image, there will be a third
image that is created in your mind.
This virtual image is the true art for which you would be creating.
This image can not be created with a paint brush or clay. It must be initiated by comparing real objects, but the art is and can only be seen in the mind.
A strong visual artistic representation of instantaneous change:
A simple example would be if you stare at a red sheet or screen long enough, and then stare at a white sheet, you would, instead, see green.
This has more to do with the tiring effects of certain parts of your eye.
But it is still a good example because you can not see or understand what that green is unless
you look at the red and white. It was a color that was not originally there.
It is a virtual color that is created in your mind.
This is what this type of art is all about.
It does not have to be about colors or shapes. it can be about the changing of virtual feelings, or ideas, too
Another strong visual artistic representation of instantaneous change this time being used in a painting:
In this example, above, the green is the byproduct, in the form of instantaneous change.
Somewhere between the red and white was the virtual green. It happened because the red and white was there, separately, and as the change of staring happened, the green formed.
Here is another, more complex, example using an oil painting...
