Let the pieces decide...

With five sets in the books, I've ended up with a small Tupperware bucket filled with extras, random elements, and spare bricks from the different Creator options. And that means it's time for one of my favorite procrastination tools.

The random build. Most elements are one-offs, which rules out a lot of possibilities for creating a symmetrical MOC. I usually end up with a piece of abstract art, otherwise known as a..."I'm not exactly sure what it is..."

I justify the idea of building from a limited group of parts as another skills challenge. I'm honing my creativity, design sense, and brick knowledge in a zen moment of building. But in reality, I think it's just my way of avoiding sorting- a meta version of procrastinating via a procrastination exercise.
