"Those cultural references do eventually drift back into a viewer's awareness, but now

all notions are influenced by this experience of beauty."

By non-form, I mean an object that is common among us, but is never looked at as a form; not appreciated. Just taken for granted. Something Baudrillard-like happens in that moment, because now there is this beautiful thing, divorced from all context, that was created in that instant. It still looks like all the others, but now bears no relation to the others and stands utterly alone.
