According to the Gestalt theory, the human process of perception is close to the art of puzzle.
A single piece of a puzzle is a mystery.
The opportunity to connect it to the other pieces gives meaning.
The goal is therefore not the sum of the pieces, but a whole marked out by a structure.
The contact sheet is this structure in which I become an animal machine until I get lost.
The contact sheet frames an imprecise whole to reveal unknown dimensions.
Gestalt is a puzzle, a way of seeing things and showing them.
