There are different analogies for the reconfiguration process. For example: a kaleidoscope. A new image appears with a slight touch. The re-arrangement of pieces allows a new image to come into view. Another metaphor is the Chinese puzzle Tangram consisting of seven geometric elements. By putting the pieces of the puzzle together in ever new ways hundreds of different images can be re-configured. A mosaic, a quilt or a patchwork are other analogies: By restructuring the pieces, a new image emerges.
