Layering and Seperation

By on

Visual activation of negative areas of white spaces... that illustrates the endlessly contextual and interactive nature of visual elements (pg. 61). Tufte is talking about the two step logic of 1+1=3 and how if you draw two black lines then you get a third image of the white space in the middle. I think Tufte means that creating paths and forming shapes can be made with using lines because of the white space in the middle. When we draw two lines a third visual image comes up and we can make out many different information designs using this technique therefore we can create a hierarchy of visual effects and use the smallest designs to demonstrate information design.
