Gestalt's theory is that our mind is vast enough to put things together no matter how jumbled they are. No matter how you mess up a photo whether is has distortions, is reflected, has negative shapes. Then Gestalt has certain laws within his theory. Law of closure is when something is perceived complete when their is enough of the shape given. Law of Similarity is something that is even is grouped together if and only if it is related. Law of Proximity is the law showing that if things are closer together they are grouped together than the things further apart. Law of Symmetry things that are symmetrical are in the same grouping. Law of Continuity if a pattern is found people repete it. Law of Fate things that look of have the same feeling are grouped together.
