Closure occurs when an object is incomplete or a space is not completely enclosed. If enough of the shape is indicated, people percieve the whole by filling in the missing infomation.

Figure and ground relationships: Area - as a closed region becomes smaller, the more it is seen as a figure (see: small urn) Symmetry - symmetrical regions that are closed tend to be seen more as figures (see: chalice) Continuation - the ground or figure drawing the most attention tends to be that with the fewest changes or interruptions in straight or gently curving lines (see: bird)
