DYNAMIC * Continuous and productive activity or change
TENSION
* balance maintained in an artistic work between opposing forces or an elements
COMPRESSION
* reduce space occupied or space required
EXPANSION
* increase in space or volume
Placement of objects, patterns, or forms in opposition or contrast to each other creates a dynamic tension within Interior Architecture.
Elements with a directional quality placed in contrast to a static enclosure can infuse energy and drama.
The implied energy can be manipulated to excite or surprise the perceiver while giving directional cues or emphasis to elements in space.
Directional cues can clarify circulation, making navigation through space more comprehensible.
Strong emphasis on elements in space can be achieved through contrasting the static with the dynamic.
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475-1564) * master of the use of dynamic tension

    ABSTRACT The requirement that no information be lost in the compression process puts a limit on the amount of compression we can obtain. The lowest number of bits per sample is the entropy of the source. This is a quantity over which we generally have no control. In many applications this requirement of no loss is excessive. For example, there is high frequency information in an image which cannot be perceived by the human visual system. It makes no sense to preserve this information for images…

Compressing a data file reduces its size, and hence it can be easily transferred over the digital network. The amount of compression depends on the compression method and compression rate. The terms compression…
