First things first today. I apologize to any of you who have come here to read my post and it was not here this morning. My internet connection (along with my cable television...big political news here in the US today...and my land line telephone) was out for six and a half hours this morning. Of course, it had to go out at seven o'clock!
But I thought you might like to see a thinking process I was taught in design school oh, so many years ago. Please forgive the quality of the images here...these are old and I did not want to take them out of the protective sleeves for who knows how well they would hold up. Do not forget you can click on the images to see and read them clearer.
could an idea be an undulating line of points on a page that will eventually drop off the page and out of the brain? or does it stay?
or maybe an idea is where two (or more) thoughts merge and remain stable
here is one idea that is simple and some may say obvious
the idea, like the circle, can lead us in many ways. We can follow it down the river...
...we refer to as life. Can a circle, itself, be a path? An unproductive one, maybe, or...
...possibly a productive one, such as a labyrinth. The circle is a core form which living and life can spring.
It can be the source and the nurture of the ones who experience it's power.
Consider the center of the home...must it always be the middle? Here I bring an idea...
So you can see this is a different way to approach solving a "design" issue. What? You want to know what this project was about? I was designing a door-less shower, but that was a lot more drawing. I thought you might like to see from where I come. Preparing these types of "thinking" preliminary sketches along with words was very common...a lot of bridging!
Have you ever experienced working in a different way like this, that you know carries over to the work you do now?
