Shape is an Element of Art

  • Shape - 2 dimensional
  • Form - 3 dimensional
  • Visual not literal.

This cycle is two dimensional. I personally connect with this photo because this is what my life feels like a tiring cycle. In class, we agreed that a circle can represent something happy but this picture feels tiring and angry because the stick man is irritated in more than half of the photos. The feeling is endless.

The below are short videos of form (3D). The Second video has a combination of 3D and 2D.


These represent form because THEY AREN'T FLAT. The difference is that it looks a lot more realistic and relatable.


A group of people lined up closely together in a circle is usually a representative of happiness and peace. Circles are a lot less harsh than other shapes such as triangles. This type of shape can also take on more subtle forms - ex. if you photograph your friends standing in a square. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE LITERAL IT CAN BE IMPLIED.


Viktor and Ralf played with shapes and cut to create allusions of "hole-y" dresses. Their use of shape and perception to their advantage created stunning show stoppers.
