Explores visual communication by manipulating simple geometric shapes and discussing their effect and the mood they create. By using simple colors and arrangements of basic elements like circles or triangles, the author demonstrates how simple and complex arrangements within pictures work, how they transfer obvious (and more hidden) messages, and how philosophy and psychology within illustrations work.
