Shape form and space

  1. 1. Shape, Form and Space.<br />
  2. 2. Shapecan be described by basic geometry objects such as a set of two or more points, a line, a curve, a plane, a plane figure (e.g. square or circle), or a solid figure (e.g. cube or sphere). Most shapes occurring in the physical world are complex. Someshapes like plant structures and coastlines may be random and others like infrastructure is very conventional.<br />Form/volume is defined as the amount of 3-dimensional space occupied by an object.<br />Space is defined as the unlimited expanse in which everything is located or an empty area usually bounded in some way between things.<br />
  3. 3. shape<br />Basic shapes… <br />Exploring the principle of shape…<br />
  4. 4. In these torso sculptures we can see the element of form…even though they are made of different individual objects you can still see form and feel the volume and fullness of the torsos.<br />form<br />
  5. 5. This sculpture is made from pencils…amazing!<br />form<br />
  6. 6. space<br />In these buildings the round spiral shape makes the illusion of space and causes the areas to look bigger then they are…<br />
  7. 7. shape<br />In silhouettes we also find the element of shape. The outline of a persons body… we sometimes don’t even realise that this is also a shape. Not only squares and circles are shapes…<br />
  8. 8. A slinky is made up of a lot of circles joined together but when we stretch it we can see the form and volume of it, it forms a tube.<br />Form<br />
  9. 9. The Sydney Opera house in Australia can be seen as an example of space…from the outside it looks amazing but doesn’t look like it can be very big inside but when you get inside…you are blown away at how huge and how breath-taking it is…so much space around you.<br />space<br />
  10. 10. Artworks created using different shapes and the picture of the person even though it is very abstract we can still see the shape of the person but you can also feel the form and volume of the figure.<br />shape<br />
  11. 11. form<br />In these sculptures we can see the element of form. The one above is made up of a basic shape, a circle in different sizes but we can still feel the form and volume of it. The one to the right is made out of paper but we can see the form and feel the object has volume which a normal piece of paper generally doesn’t have.<br />
  12. 12. The Water Cube in Beijing can be seen as an example of space from the outside it looks small but when you go inside you are amazed at how much is in there and how much space there is.<br />space<br />
  13. 13. shape<br />These pictures are made up of different shapes. The one above is made up of triangles squares and rectangles, all basic shapes, but when put together they form a complete composition. The artwork on the left is also made up of basic shapes mainly rectangles but the artist has placed them in such a way that they form a piece of work that sells for millions.<br />
  14. 14. These images are made up of lines and shapes but when the line are drawn close together they create an object that has form and volume.<br />form<br />
  15. 15. form<br />This artwork is painted on a flat canvas but the objects in the centre of the composition seem to have form and volume. The images of humans are made up of several shapes. The colours around the main image are 2d they have no form or volume. This makes the centre part of the painting stand out as the focal point.<br />
  16. 16. shape<br />These tangrams are Chinese puzzles that are made from basic shapes but when put together in different ways they create a completely new object.<br />
