Pure Form

The sphere, as an object in our world, is probably one of the most apparent of natural forms and most likely is commonly thought of to be the most understood of forms, because of its prevalence. This, however, is probably a misconception, as the complexities of a sphere just simply in its making and geometries are hard to grasp, let alone in the understanding of it as a specified object in space. To understand the sphere as a thing with very strategic placement, spatial qualities, and reasoning, an argument has to be made for the sphere to exist. Out of all forms, the spheres placement and reasoning within the world is possibly the most vital to existence as we can understand it: the planets as spheres orbiting around other spheres, the eyes of human, right down to the molecule, condensed water, and more. They all have a placement (though often moving and changing) a strategic relationship with gravity, the ability to preform at extreme macro or micro sizes, and they all have a texture and distinct purpose along their surface. And because of this, the sphere does not really exist as a pure form, not naturally at least. 

So the question becomes, how can you create a sphere that also addresses these concepts? How can a sphere earn its placement as an object within the world? What gives it a purpose and what warrants its existence and the need to think and discuss it?

When you condense the idea of sphere down from planets or molecular structures, its existence already seems minute, but finding some logic to the reasoning for it to exist is the purpose of this study.
