shapes - arrange off centre

When a point is centred it is stable. The mind is at rest. When it is off centred things change....

A point cannot be measured, it has no length, width or height.

It has no movement.

If you see a wall and floor, and all the items are off centre, there is a different dynamic occurring. The brain wants to 'even' up the area in some way

A window, or furnishings will balance an artwork that is off centre.

Placing things off centre brings movement as the eye moves to the blank space subconsciously wanting to move the item to the centre.
