I wanted to capture the transition between black on white and white on black, so I created the gradient in the background. In front of the gradient is a black and white spiral. I had hoped to create three different sections in this image. On the left, a white spiral in a black background. On the right, a black spiral in a white background. In the middle, one could imagine both colors due to the background of gray. This way, one can see that the majority color is never in focus, just as it is in Ligon's Prisoner of Love. Only in a neutral environment can the two colors be in the foreground.
I wanted to convey how I felt about the issues discussed in Ligon's work. When not in a place of power, aggression may very well serve one's cause. However, as the cause grows, continued aggression only serves to highlight one's opponents.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
