A tray of chocolate doughnuts looks like a tray of chocolate doughnuts. A tray of vanilla doughnuts looks like a tray of vanilla doughnuts. A tray of half chocolate and half vanilla doughnuts looks, yes, like a tray of half and half doughnuts. Unless we move the doughnuts around. The arrangement allows the commonplace to take on a striking and engaging look. By moving a few elements around the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
