Negative space

Why we need negative space.

Contrast is one of my favorite tools in art and writing. It hightens the quality of both sides of the spectrum. Without yin there is no yang. There are no shadows without light. If there is no black, white means nothing. That’s why negative space is separate from positive space. If they were one and the same, the drama would be gone. However you say it, comparison without contrast is dull.
