Asymmetrical Balance John Divola, Natural Reductions, 1987-89 Asymmetrical

Balance Asymmetry means without symmetry. Meaning that there are no mirror images in a composition. AKA Informal Symmetry.

Where does your attention goes when you look at an image? If it seems to wander around more or less evenly, there is probably balance. A small visually

interesting object can balance a much larger less interesting object. John Divola, Natural Reductions, 1987-89

Radial Balance Radial Balance A design in which the elements radiate from the center.
