As a

oerson

who orimarilv

experiences

his

environment

visually,

I

am always

obseiving

my immediate

iurrbundings.

Consequently,

I

am

constantly

putIing

things

inbrder,,

sorling

lhem oul.,

until

they become

a

whole.

My

preference

for

clear structures

is Ihe iesult oI

my desire,

p'erhaps

illusory' to

keep

track

o[

things and

mainl.ain

my

grip

on the

world.'
