ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the type of visual expression and symbol of empty image as a formative element, and to activate the study of empty image in order to re-evaluate the value of those. The method of this study is based on visual language classification of Kostelnic, C. and Roberts, D. and second-stage model of Roland Barthes's semiotics. This is to set the common analysis standard of empty image, and suggest the research model in order to analyze visual expression and symbol of empty image. The following results were obtained through the study of empty image in the East and West. 1) In the visual expression, the intra type showed the natural forms, the inter type showed a sense of space, and the extra type showed a resting space in the East. In the west, the intra type showed visual illusion, the inter type showed the enhancement of functionality, the Extra type showed a resting space. 2) The symbol type represented the virtue in the East and the silence in the West. This research will contribute to laying the foundations for practical use in design by discovering the value of Empty Image through diachronic study of empty image in the East and West.
