Interesting Read: Horror Vacui

There’s a concept in visual art called horror vacui, or «fear of empty spaces.» It’s the natural tendency of humans to fill empty spaces with stuff. Your new shelf has some empty panels? Put something in there! Your flat has an empty corner? Buy a chair! Or a plant! Something! Anything!


Favourite part

Don’t be a victim of horror vacui. If you want your software to be perceived as valuable, don’t fill every empty corner with some kind of feature or widget.
