Invisible + Visible Gif(t)(s)

What do we take from visible signifiers of the unseen, the unperceived? On-screen: flat barriers impenetrably inform us about the presence of the empty, the spatially clear. It tells us that there is nothing to see by showing us something to see. What’s the spatial difference of one pixel volumetric container? What happens when you fill it? Can we really design nothing? Is it suddenly something once we’ve designated specific meaning, when it physically takes up space, or if it has some kind of cultural, emotive, or aesthetic value?
