2. Positive and Negative Space? • Positive space • can be thought of as the space that is occupied by or represents the objects in a picture. • Negative space • Can be thought of as the empty space that surrounds objects in a picture. A loose comparison can be made between the positive and negative space and the foreground and the background of an image

3. Positive and Negative space cont. The easiest way to think about positive and negative space is in terms of black objects and white background. This is in effect creating a silhouette of an object on a white surface. Well, maybe it’s a little more than a silhouette. But this is a good start. From here, all you need to do is decide what areas (shapes) you could change to white (negative) that will add to, and clarify our image without destroying its overall form. Now that’s better.

4. Lets Give it a Try Positive and Negative spaces can be flipped around. Using the cut away (negative) space for your image and leaving the (positive) background will give you a very different effect. When your creating your cardboard relief the spaces you cut away will become your white (negative space) areas, and the parts you leave will become your black/coloured (positive space) areas Some things will have to go, while others may need to be added.

5. Now you try!

6. Positive and negative space“mixing it up” Switching your positive and negative space gives the impression of your object extending beyond the frame

7. Some more examples of “mixing it up” Through the center of both tires • Dividing the image between a negative and positive space adds interest to the image. • Maintaining a balance between the two spaces and paying attention to where the division line falls are important considerations Through the center of the image
