It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.
Calvin & Hobbes on Creativity
YOU WILL TELL THEM YES
THIS. “Become the change you want to see.”
Mural, as part of an ongoing project about “change”. Location: OpenSpace Gallery, Tongeren. “Become the change you want to see” is a quote from Gandhi. Change must start within yourself and because the quote is spread out across parts of three walls, the reader must undergo a first change to be able to read the quote in its entirety. This is only possible by stepping 10 meters away, moving to the right and staying low to the ground (in a humble position).
Make things happen. Stop procrasturbating.
A year from now what will I wish I had done today?
Not all those who wander are lost. -J.R.R. Tolkien
Intuition plays a very significant part in design, as it does in life. It’s the initial phase of any creative work. It’s the factor that makes it possible to be alive. Animals live by instinct, and we do, too. The difference is that they don’t reason. We do, and that can be a problem. You get an idea, which comes intuitively. You then look at it and decide whether it’s right or wrong. The important thing is not the intuition but the decision—whether it’s right or wrong—whether or not to pursue it. Most of the time people simply latch on to trends or to freakish solutions they believe are creative but which have nothing to do with real problems—with right or wrong.
A good solution, in addition to being right, should have the potential for longevity. Yet I don’t think one can design for permanence. One designs for function, for usefulness, rightness, beauty. Permanence is up to God."
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. ~Emerson
