Direction – Direction describes the horizontal, vertical or diagonal representation of a figure. Direction of a figure can be actual or implied.
Discontinuity in Direction
In this example, the square in the center becomes the primary figure within the sequence because of motion. The motion is a change of direction, rotating clockwise and counterclockwise. Once again, if you stop the movie at the beginning or end, there is no clear primary figure due to all three squares being fundamentally identical.
