Gestalt psychology; Camouflage (Military science); Visual perception;
In the first half of the 20th century, Gestalt psychologists researched the inherent tendencies of human vision, including such components as unit-forming factors, closure, and hidden or embedded figures (also sometimes known as camouflaged figures). This is a video talk about some of those organizing tendencies, with particular emphasis on their use in the design of WWI-era ship camouflage. Part 3 of 4. Written, produced and narrated by UNI Emeritus Professor Roy R. Behrens (©2022).
