A shape is only ever a surface, a relational limit, a constraint.
It is the front line of a natural test – one that de-forms, trans-forms, out-forms, in-forms or per-forms it.
Of course, once a form is stable, it no longer appears to need any testing.
But be mindful: Not all formalisms are formed equal, but all are formed.
