photograph forms of the gestalt principles of closure, proximity, continuation, and similarity from around the house.  



I wasn’t confident with too many of my last sketches, they needed to be more straight forward, so I spent a while reworking the compositions before I went onto the computer to create the final sets for each principle.

going into illustrator to cleanly create the images really brought the compositions together. the contrast of b&W accentuates the designs and makes the principles being depicted more obvious. 


gestalt sketches

gestalt breaks down the visual laws that our brain unconsciously follow.

loosely defining similarity, proximity, continuance, and closure led to using primitive, basic shapes to explore and compose different compositions that display each of these four concepts.
