Point, Line, Plane: Jane Doe

A point (or dot) simply marks a position in space.  For my representation of a point, I used a laser pointer on the wall of my apartment.  This laser pointer red dot on the wall is a basic and easy to visualize representation of the point as the red dot stands out in contrast to the white background.

“A line is defined as an infinite series of points…with length, but no breadth”, according to the Graphic Design: The New Basics book.  For my second image, I took a picture of a towel I own with three distinct lines crossing the towel horizontally.  If viewed closely enough, the intricacies of the stitching can be viewed, which are the points that make up these lines.

A plane is a line with height and width.  Shapes can also be planes.  To represent a plane, I chose to take a picture of the floor in my kitchen.  This plane is in the shape of a square, which is repeated across the floor pattern and is framed by lines.
