Form

In its widest sense, total structure; a synthesis of all the visible aspects of that structure and of the manner in which they are united to create its distinctive character. The form of a work is what enables us to perceive it.


Form also refers to an element of art that is three-dimensional (height, width, and depth) and encloses volume.
