Topic 3: Contrast

Post  Admin on Mon Sep 13, 2010 6:35 am

CONTRAST (KON trast)
1. To set in opposition in order to show or emphasize difference
2. A striking dissimilarity between things being compared
3. The use of opposing elements such as colors, forms or lines in proximity to produce an intensified effect

Contrast clarifies and heightens an effect. To make a white paper brighter, place a black mark upon it. Punctuate the silence with a scream, a dark room with a candle, and bland tones with a spot of intense color. Contrast is used to draw attention to an area, or to provide stability or clarity to a composition.

Contrast can exist in many realms at once. A thick, jagged, curved black line contrasts with a thin, smooth, straight red line.

We locate and define ourselves through contrast. We compare ourselves to what we are not, we are usually attracted to those who are dissimilar to ourselves. We would be lost without contrasts, life would be boring and dull.

So with all that in mind, I want you to think of a close friend or relative. Describe a way in which this person significantly contrasts with you. You do not need to identify who he or she is by name.

Devin Roberts contrasts with me the most, physically and mentally. He is tall with dark hair and he is pretty darn ugly. I am the exact opposite. Devin has more fingers than brain cells. I'm not a genius, I'm just average brained. But we both are violent, like to surf and go to the beach, want to be a lifeguard, and both evil. MUHAHAHAHAHA Evil or Very Mad

My mom is very different from me. She has lame jokes. My jokes are funny. Though we look alike we act very different. She loves kids and brings them home after her work. By the way she works with kids and is a teacher. I like kids but the ones she brings home are lame boring and annoying. She is very uptight and clean. My room will have one shirt on the floor and she will YELL. WE ARE VERY DIFFERENT!!!!!

My cousin, who lives in the Marshall Islands, is very aquatic. I live in Florida and rarely go to the beach. My cousin is fit by swimming and working out daily. I get fit by... wait a minute.

The person who contrasts with me the most is my boyfriend, Nick. He's really muscular and I'm not. He doesn't have braces, I do. He loves baseball, I hate it. He hates soccer, I love it. When he first meets people he's out going, I'm really shy. I love going shopping, he'd rather not. He HATES chocolate, I LOVE chocolate! He can't catch food in his mouth but I can. We are different, but we get along. <3 Very Happy

My best friend contrasts me. She is taller than me and she loves to read. I only like to read when I have to or when I find a really good book. She is more outgoing than me and she is not afraid to stand up for herself. She is in band and I don't even play an instrument.
