In this research students started their work through creating 12 compositions by using basic forms. They were required to make three drawings that describe proximity (3), repetitions (3), continuation (3). Then, they chose one of their drawings and mimicked that with their body. Indeed, in this assignment students should manipulate a 3D form in order to re-created a 2D form. In continue, students were asked to choose a partner to photograph their composition (body) and then re ne their photo by using Photoshop.
is research followed three objectives. Students gained an understating of basic principles and applying them to other medium. They created a dialogue about how we anthropomorphize objects. And finally they got led to understand abstraction and breaking down the forms into shapes.
