Dots, figures, layout and space

A moving dot can define a line. Without it, we have nothing. We are going to first experiment with the location and size of a dot. Click on the interactive link and show only one circle. Move the dot to demonstrate an example of a static dot, active/floating dot, and vary the size from small to very large. Observe the negative space around the object. Notice how it effects the layout and balance of your composition. Next, copy and paste multiples of the circles to create a composition you feel is pleasing to the eye. Notice any copy of Circle A will always remain the same size as the original (set by slider bar); you can change the location and move each one. A copy of Circle B however can vary in both size and location from its original (change the size by selecting and moving point C).
