Reduction by Design

A bridge, a canal, a sky.

We probably see a thousand raw master strokes of design daily: The way a building meets the sky, the way a cluster of streetlights, wires, and telephone towers meet, how an orange bridge meets a blue sky and still water. The challenge is clearing away the surrounding noise and finding the purer signal.

The art of design is both a matter of collection and subtraction and the resonant harmony in-between.

Often the answer is the simple one; Simple it may be, but not unconscious.

Chaos will find us soon enough. For now, let's just enjoy the quiet
