We live in a world where not only do you have to be an expert at a few things, but good at everything else too.

Literature versus Traffic by Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus.
An installation of 10,000 LED-lit books at Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia for The Light In Winter festival.
The books, recently retired from area public libraries, were given a second life as a glowing river that flowed through the square and into a nearby street. On the final day of the installation, onlookers were invited to take the books home.
I had the hardest time dressing myself this morning. At least my backpack is cute.Share
Sometimes I think things are only uphill from here with my family, but then I remember that my mom has cancer, my dad kicked her to the curb less than three months after finding out, and the worst is still yet to come.Share
I’m sorry to everyone for spamming their feed with cute animals.
Except not really.Share
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
