  • ART 101:
    Introduction to Art
    Visual Perception and
    The Formal Properties of Art
    James Greene | Visiting Assistant Professor | 1110 CAC | greenjam@gvsu.edu
  • Gestalt
    gə-ˈstält ("form" or "whole”)
    A theory of mind and brain positing
    that the operational principle of the brain is
    holistic, parallel, and uses self-organizing tendencies,
    OR:
    The name applied to the notion that
    the whole is different from the sum of its parts.
  • “Seeing the forest for the trees.”
  • Gestalt
    The use of Gestalt principles factors heavily in our perception of art and design. Artists and designers use knowledge of our brains’ natural form-forming abilities to produce art and design that communicates effectively.
  • Gestalt
    The key principles of Gestalt systems are:
    Emergence
    We do not recognize something or someone by first identifying its individual parts and then inferring what it is from those component parts.
    Instead, we perceive it as a whole, all at once.
  • Gestalt
    The key principles of Gestalt systems are:
    Reification
    The constructive or generative aspect of perception, by which the thing perceived contains moreexplicit spatial information than the sensory stimulus on which it is based.
  • Gestalt
    The key principles of Gestalt systems are:
    Multistability
    The tendency of ambiguous perceptual experiences to pop back and forth unstably between two or more alternative interpretations.
  • NECKER CUBE
    RUBIN’S VASE
    Ambiguous Depth Figures
  • M.C. Escher, Circle Limit IV (Angels & Devils) 1960
  • Gestalt
    The key principles of Gestalt systems are:
    Invariance
    The property of perception whereby simple geometrical objects are recognized independent of rotation, translation, and scale; as well as several other variations such as elastic deformations, different lighting, and different component features.
