The structural skeleton serves as a frame of reference by helping determine the role of each pictorial element within the balance system of the whole more on this subject in 2.
The point of bal- ance between a corner and center lies somewhat closer to the corner, as if the center was stronger. Psychological, as physical, systems exhibit a very general tendency to change in the direction of the lowest attainable tension level see Fig.
The Percept as a Potential Field : The percept is really a continuous field of forces. It is a dynamic landscape, in which lines of the structural skeleton are actually ridges slop- ping off in both directions. These ridges are centers of attractive and repulsive forces, whose influence extends through their surroundings, inside and outside the bound- aries of the figure e. There is no point free from these forces.
But the life of a percept — its expression and meaning — derives entirely from the activity of the perceptual forces.
Any line drawn on a sheet of paper, is like a rock thrown into a pond. Seeing is the perception of action. Every aspect of a visual experience has its physiological counterpart in the nervous system p. Physiological Field Processes : The nature of these brain processes is such that they can be thought of as field processes where interactions between the parts and the whole are a general phenomenon.
Dynamic effect : Visual weight is always a dynamic effect, but the tension [it produces] is not necessarily oriented along a direction within the picture plane. According to the lever principle, the weight of an element increases in relation to its distance from the center. Why is that?
Perhaps due to a counterbalancing effect to foreshortening. Intrinsic interest : Because of its formal complexity, intricacy, or other peculiarity, a visual area may look heavier.
Isolation : Makes for weight; e. Compactness, i. Weights attraction : Attraction exerted by the weights of neighboring elements. Structural skeleton : Directions along the axes of the structural skeleton of a shape.
Subject matter : E. Movement : E. That is, weight in the upper part of perceived space counts more than in the lower part. Environmental orientation : The objective, physical vertical gravitational direction.
If we invert them, i.
Even if the horizontal and vertical lines have the same length, the vertical one appears much longer see Fig. The diagonal that runs from bottom left to top right is seen as ascending, the other as descending. Any pictorial object looks heavier at the right side of the picture.
