Project 4: Shape sketches/Letter formation
My two words for my brainstorm were SLUGGISH and SUPPLEMENT
(Dictionary) indisposed to action or exertion; lacking in energy; lazy; indolent. Slow to act or respond. Not action or working with full vigor, as bodily organs.
(My Definition) to be un-energetic, un-interested, non-entertained. To move in a slow motion, head down, drooping, dragging your feet. Lazy and lay around all day.
(Dictionary) something added to complete a thing, supply a deficiency; or reinforce or extend a whole. Part added to a book, document, etc. to suple additional or later information, correct errors; or the like. A part, usually of special character, issed as an additional feature of a newspaper or other periodical.
(My Definition) Being aid to an preexisting thing. Giving nutrients to a human, words/pages to a book, water to a plant. It completes the item by filling in the missing piece.
CONNOTATIONS: Connotations and Images (<– LINK)
with SLUGGISH I wanted to give this idea of motion, like either from fast to slow or slow to fast. Since a slug actually moves slow and leaves a residue behind as it travels I wanted to give that idea of stretching across the screen.
with SUPPLEMENT I was thinking of an extra piece, something added as support, and inorder to show that its needed to fill a void I wanted to eliminate its position from the actual letter than show it elsewhere.
I applied the sluggish sketches to the letters G and L, and i applied the supplement sketches to the N and E.
This is where I began playing with the word sluggish, I had a harder time getting to a point where all the letters agreed. So i continuously played with different “s” .
