Another Gestalt concept is Similarity. We reviewed many more in lecture the first week of classes.
SIMILARITY: Things that are similar tend to be grouped together. They do not necessarily need to be physically grouped like proximity.
This image uses similarity to group the produce. Though it is technically also proximity, the similarity aspect of color does the stronger grouping.
The example allows us to group the similar shape and color of the toes of the shoes vs. the canvas bodies. (This example also shows strong Closure and Figure-Ground.)
STUDENTS: ONE SAMPLE OF GESTALT SIMILARITY
Again, DO NOT use the black geometric shapes on a white background to show proximity because this is too easy. Find a photo or other work like a painting that shows grouping by proximity. You will find a few correct examples beyond the black geometric shapes from our Google search. OR you can comprehend this elementary concept and find an image with some other search of photos until you find it.
Remember you must explain your choice in at least 4 sentences.
