The revealing capacity of aesthetic experiments developed out of soap bubbles was used to envision minimal surface principles. These embodiments of thinking established a material base to relate mathematical formulas to space. The experimental, ephemeral, emergent process of `form-giving` (Klee, 1964) is seen as an emergent, constant becoming and interaction of spatial, bodily, cultural and social relations.
