The study of form and function as contrapositive with respect to each other. An attempt to schematize design from form.

The study of skeumorphs (memes).
Memetics proffers the tenet that function and form are contra-functional.

Memetics isolates design from form by arguing that there is no duality that is not design.

This is the obverse of the postmodern mantra that "form follows function" and the genesis of Hypermodernism.
