Form and Content

Form is the synthesis of an object's physical characteristics: size, shape, color, texture, etc.  There is a relationship between the viewer and the object that the viewer translates according to his/her individual experiences.  Content is the meaning that these characteristics give a composition.  Form and content are often thought of as separate attributes but the two can not be clearly divided because they are parts of a whole.  Though the artist is the creator, it is the viewer that ultimately interprets the meaning.

Project 1 uses the concepts of form and content to recreate an object from nature in cardboard and glue.  The objective is to create a complete fusion between concept, technique and materials.  I will be creating an interpretation of a pine cone.  Stay tuned...
