Refer to shape diagram example
Making a square using the idea of reversal
Can you design something using empty space
If not like this then it would be impossible to make a square
Video 2: Wheelchair Comic Chris Fonseca (10 minutes)
Stand up comedian uses reversal to turn the fact that he is paraplegic into a positive. He
makes fun of himself.
Example: his wife is deaf and he says she never listens to him. Ha ha
