The Study of Rotational Motion Perception on the Dynamical Sphere of the Surface Spiral Pattern from the Angle of Line

Abstract

The research is based on the basic design and art to explore the characteristic of a dynamical sphere. And because previous studies only in the main form of the cylinder and the cone. Therefore, the purpose of this study is using a sphere as the main shape, to explore the best angle of line on the spiral pattern of the dynamical sphere. This study is divided into two parts, the first part, the literature research and analysis theory to explore the characteristics of the sphere, and regulated the angle of line that suitable for the sample. And the second part was used the adjustment method of psychophysics to experiment. With total of 30 subjects, half composed by the men and women. And the test results, defined the best angle of line on spiral pattern on the surface of dynamical sphere. Not only can promote the dynamical shapes but also can have contribute to some basic of the motion perception. Besides, it can be extended for use in performances or stage effects.
