Compositions with round geometric forms

The Curvilinear exercise introduces round geometries such as spheres, cylinders, cones, and eggs as elements in a composition. Each of these forms has a linear, planar, or volumetric variant. The exercise explores activating multiple axes with one element. Hence a diagonal positioning may activate (x,y) or (x,z) or (y,z). The composition should have a hierarchy of dominant, subdominant, and subordinate. Last, elements must connect using two of three ways: cradling, piercing, or wedging.
