Other suggestions:

Invent a kinesthetic image for the model: is it an elevator? a forklift? a weaving

loom, with shuttle? a tiger slinking through the jungle? Abstract models are usually

constructed to be static, which will make it very difficult in most cases to think of

a kinesthetic image; but that very difficulty, the challenge of putting a static image

into motion, is precisely what makes this exercise so fruitful.

Do a Freudian psychoanalysis of the model. Whether you believe in psychoanalysis

or not is really irrelevant; this is primarily a heuristic, a way of getting your

ideas flowing. What is the model not saying? What is it repressing, and why? What

are its connections with sex, violence, and death; Oedipus and Electra; narcissism

and melancholy; latent homosexuality?

There are more exercises along these lines below (especially exercise 3); it is not

difficult to invent others. The key is to develop techniques for dynamizing the static,

enlivening the inert, humanizing the inanimate, personalizing the mechanical.
