Law of closure

Perceptive phenomenon that joint two separate entities (ex: lines lying along the same trajectory).


  • Time needs to be allocated for the audience to perceive two separate entities.
  • Spectators will fill in the missing information and make a whole of separate entities (dialogues, music, sound effects, visuals, etc…)
