Jacques D'Amboise, the dancer and choreographer, gave a wonderful speech
at the AZ AEA conference once. In it, he talked about how "art is about
limitations," and how the less a dancer--and presumably visual artist--
has to work with, the more it can release their creativity. Ever since
that speech, I've given my students assignments with limited parameters.
