The Addition of Planes

Geometry -The space enclosed by lines can be filled with solid color to form a plane. Two planes can be combined, or added, whether or not they are of the same shape or size.

Planes might overlap or intersect with other planes, while the shape of an individual plane maintains its separate identity. Shapes thus created are less seen as singular forms, but more as plural or compound forms.

Two planes that have been combined might have some common edges, which result in a shape without easily discernible components.
