Do you fit? If so.... what is it you fit in to? Where do you fit? Where do you not fit? And why?
For me a fit is a form of harmony... there is a sense of ease and rightness. In a creation of a piece, it is all about placing the things that fit next to each other. Does this light fit with this skirt? Does this stone fit on this floor? Do these dancers fit together? Does this step fit here? Does this audience fit with this piece? Does this text fit on this paper? A puzzle...
But what about those pieces in the puzzle which do not fit... the pieces that provoke....
How do they effect the puzzle? Perhaps they become a driving force towards something else, inspiring and transforming the puzzle.
