Gestalt a unified whole
Gestalt: A Unified Whole any other. It is an ‘all-over’ image, allowing the viewer to scan the entirety rather than zoom in on any one part.

  • Gestalt theory: Visual imagery is understood holistically before it is examined separately. We look at the whole puzzle before individual pieces.

  • A succesful composition feels unified, but on analysis can be broken down into:

    • Grouping

    • Containment

    • Proximity

    • Repetition

    • Continuity

    • Closure

      These elements work together to create a unified whole.
