### Lesson 5 - Juxtaposition

lectured by Mr.Mustaffa Muzer

JUXTAPOSITION
-Juxtaposition can be defined as placing two variable, side by side and their contrast or similarity are shown through comparison. Many creative processes rely on juxtaposition. By juxtaposing two objects or words next to each other, human brain will automatically associate or transfer meaning. Usually ‘turning’ something familiar to something less familiar or vice-versa.
-There are two types of juxtaposition, literary and random juxtaposition.

(a) Juxtaposition (literary)
It is refer to synonymous with the contrast, two objects or text that against with each other.

(b) Random Juxtaposition
It is refer to solve problems, design or other creative ideas to stimulate the pursuit of the two facing unrelated concepts or objects.

Below are some images that taken from google image.

The image of juxtaposition to show the differences in between man and woman.

This is another image which using the juxtaposition technique. In the picture, the guy in left hand side is the tallest guy in the world, the right hand side is the shortest guy. It make a strong comparison.

The example of juxtaposition that mentioned in the class by lecturer is the TV series, LOST.
It shows the comparison in between
-Love / Hate
-East / West
-Chaos / Calm
-Life / Death
...and etc.
