In art and art criticism, form and content are considered distinct aspects of a work of art. The term form refers to the work's style, techniques and media used, and how the elements of design are implemented. Content, on the other hand, refers to a work's subject matter, or what is being depicted.[1]

Incongruity between form and content can be humorous.
