Point, Line, Plane: Zach Prybell

Picture by: Zach Prybell

The first photo it a picture of a couch that is at my house, I think that it shows points, lines, and a plane very well. I’ll start with the plane, if you look at the picture as a whole, all the lines come together to form squares which are planes with boundaries. Then looking at all the squares, they come together to form one bigger square which again is just a plane with edges as described by “Graphic Design the New Basics” by Ellen Lupton and Jennifer Phillips. The lines in this are also important since they come together to from the planes, the lines stretch from top to bottom, and side to side. The lines cross at times which create points at the intersections. Points are really the base of this photo, since they are what lines are made of.

The next picture I have is of the siding of my house, this one takes a different perspective on the interaction between points, lines, and planes. The vertical lines in this picture aren’t continuous, they are offset by a bit. This to me gives the picture a more jumbled look compared to the other one which was so uniform. But that being said it still obviously has points, lines, and planes. The points are easiest to see where the horizontal lines and the vertical lines meet. The lines are more of the negative space in between the pieces of wood rather than printed or stitched on something. Finally the planes are the individual pieces of wood that form squares.

The last picture is of a pole outside my house that holds up an awning. I find this one interesting because the smaller lines are like points to the bigger line and then those lines come together to form a thinker line. Overall I think this picture is really good at looking at lies and ok of points, but it’s hard to tell if there is really a plane that is formed here. The argument could be made that the combination of the each separate line that forms a thicker line could be defined as a plane but I think the argument could be made against it too.
