Makes an object look real. Affects perception and mood. We associate different feelings with different textures.
Shape organic vs. inorganic geometric vs. free form Karl Schmidt Rottluff, Woodcut, 1915
Organic shapes generally have softer, rounder edges.
Size Size helps create depth (small objects placed high in the frame appear farther away.)
Larger objects command more attention.
Space Positive space is occupied by a shape or form. Negative space is empty space.
Objects can be arranged in space in a uniform pattern or randomly. The arrangement affects perception, from crowded and claustrophobic to alone and isolated.
