Title: Form perception: An Interactive guide to the Gestalt principles
Author: Alawadhi, Hend
Abstract: The term Gestalt literally means "form" in German. In the early 20th century, the Gestalt Principles of Perception were developed by German psychologists from the Berlin School. These principles describe the different ways the human mind organizes visual elements into groups or unified wholes. The definition of Gestalt in relation to these principles is "unified whole." This thesis is an endeavor to examine the five major principles of Gestalt perception through the use of short animations and illustrated examples, presented in a website. It will also allow the user to test the knowledge provided through a short multiple-choice quiz and an experimental workshop section. The website will essentially be an educational tool for students and teachers alike, helping establish a strong visual and aesthetic awareness and improvement in design choices.
