In art the positive space is the object we’re looking at (a vase for example on a table) and the negative space is the area around the object (the background). By being able to understand this spacial relationship you can hone in a more successful compositional arrangement. As artists and designers we tend to focus mainly on the positive shapes in our composition but the magic really happens in the negative’s equally as important as our positive space and this project will allow you time to devote on studying its spacial interaction.
