Ambiguity of Positive and Negative Space

positive and negtaive spcae

Piano forest by Jason Cho is a beautiful example of the use of positive and negative space in an ambiguous way. The trees in the center of the piece mimic the black keys on a piano. When looking at the picture a person can’t help but go between the image as two different ides, piano keys and trees in the forest. Even though the coloring might be simples, the simplicity really captures the concept of piano forest perfectly.
