Space means the area in and around an object.


Space can describe empty or full areas, areas that are far away or nearby, and areas that are huge or small.


Artists show two kinds of space, positive and negative.


Positive space is the area occupied by an object.

Negative space is the area around the object, which defines the object’s edges.
