The derivation of counterexamples to formula5 estimates can be reduced to a geometric decomposition procedure along rank-one lines in matrix space. We illustrate this concept in two concrete applications. Firstly, we recover a celebrated, and rather complex, counterexample by Ornstein, proving the failure of Korn's inequality, and of the corresponding geometrically nonlinear rigidity result, in formula5. Secondly, we construct a function formula9 which is separately convex but whose gradient is not in formula11, in the sense that the mixed derivative formula13 is not a bounded measure.
