The Gestalt Principles

Similarity: We tend to put things that looks similar in to a group

Continuation: When the eye is lead from one spot to another

Proximity: Our eyes will perceive things that are placed closer to each other as a group

Closure: Occurs when the object of the figure is incomplete, our eyes still can perceive as what it is

Figure/Ground: the relationship between the positive and negative space. Our eyes identify objects according to the object’s surroundings. The figure is the foreground, and the ground is the background.
