In chapter 3 mccloud explains how our brain constantly create closure to an image or series of images. In his own words "Closure allows us to connect these moments and mentally construct a continuous, unified reality. As he explained in chapter 2, when we see a face from a circle with a line amd two dots we are committing the act of closure. Within Newspapers our brains take the half-tone images and forms then into an actual image. When two images are placed together there are 6 types of transitions due to closure. Moment to moment, action to action, subject to subject, scene to scene, aspect to aspect, and non-seuitur. Action to action is the most common for most transitions. Between film frames, closure is mistaken for real movement.
