Steel and Plexiglas geodesic dome, shown under construction, 137Ј high, 250Ј diameter. 43 44 CH APTER 2 The Primary Elements The sculptures of Louise Bourgeois (2-10) are more difficult to categorize. Works like Blind Man’s Buff seem to include shapes that fit all categories at once. They crowd together, as if in a precarious huddle, and the outside forms seem on the verge of tumbling off the sculpture. Are these abstractions parts of living creatures or actually nonobjective shapes?

Although shapes come in all sizes and types, whether two-dimensional or three-dimensional, they are usually described in four ways: geometric, organic, abstract, and nonrepresentational. Geometric shapes (2-6) are formed by straight lines or curved ones that progress evenly. Squares, rectangles, triangles, and circles are all examples of this kind of two-dimensional shape. The threedimensional equivalents are the solid geometric masses called the cube, box, pyramid, and sphere. Organic shapes (2-7) are formed by uneven curves.
