Two Dimensional Field by Zettl—Sight, Sound, Motion: Applied Media Aesthetics

Field forces on the screen which serve to clarify and intensify events

Images are so powerful because of how the speak to us. There is an inherent message in how the objects on every screen is organized. Essentially I interpret this to mean point of view. As Zettl was discussing tilting planes I guessed that a similar affect might be drawn from a bird in the sky. I almost felt a little nauseated   by watching the video below.

 Directed by the rule of asymmetry in the article I shifted the navigation sidebar on my blog homepage from the the right side of the page to the left. According to Zettl, the right side of the screen/page grabs more attention. Thus, we should keep the main content on the right. Amazingly, I actually believe that this simple trick helped in the aesthetic appeal of the blog homepage.
