The world just as our every day, sometimes seems like a messy thrift shop. When finally you feel like you figured it out, out of nowhere, it will all turn upside down, and once again, you have to adapt. So we do our best to understand and relate to all of this. To get some peace and establish some order in the clutter, we create systems and categories to memorize. But what then, when the categories and pictures you connect with things and concepts do no longer fit? Suddenly you have to put an effort into decoding and understanding, something that occasionally ends up being refreshing. In front of you, you see some pieces. Some are square, some are organic. Some colorful, others neutral. They might fit in a system or they might not. Is there a place for them, in yours?
