Form and Function

Hello everyone I've not been frequenting pixalo for a while, but I am hoping you can give me a pointer on the title heading, (Form and Function) at my photography group we have been given the above subject for the monthly assignment/competition. I asked what the subject would include and was given a bit of a vague answer. I am at a loss to decide on what to photograph. Any sugguestions or pointers on the subject would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Form and Function

Its often said that form follows function - by that they mean that the form an object takes is a direct reflection of the function it performs. The wheel is a good example - it is round because its function is to roll.
My guess is that the assignment is to shoot something where the form is reflective of the function.

Re: Form and Function

Thats a great example

I guess the next question has to be can you think of any others and if so what are you hoping to shoot for the assignment?

Re: Form and Function

I don't know yet I'm still at a bit of a loss to be honest, I think the term form and function is a bit up it's own anus really. But maybe I am just a bit thick. I'll have to dig some magazines out or get googling.
