Crumple up the portrait without tearing it.

Color Music #1 for Dick Higgins

List your problems from one to five.
For each problem, list the best solution you can think of.
For each problem, also list a color.
Whenever the problem arises in your mind, think first of the best solution, and if you cannot act on it immediately, switch to concentration on the color until an absolute necessity intervenes.

Alison Knowles, 1963
