The captivating fascination for transformation
Holding her tears in, Rosalyn whispers to her lover: “I don' t like change. It’s really hard for me. Sometimes I think that I ’ll die before I change" . It was Jennifer Laurence, with fear in her eyes in the movie American Hustle.
The absurd constant of change keeps the designer alive, as well as the the architect and the creative too. A creative mind relishes the evolution of needs, identifying new oppor tunities for serving mankind. The creative head is peaceful in the chaotic and unpredictable landslide of debris and details that make personal lives and social interactions.
After all, humans are liquids in motion: perfectly adapting to the shape of a container but assuming unpredictable shapes when granted freedom of expression. We preach for rationality, we structure our world with solid and strict rules, but our choices follow visceral instincts, primary needs, hard to grasp, hidden in the depths of our mind, leaving us a little ashamed.
And within this strange balance, we find the expression of design at its best, at its maximum potential .
We are going through such perfectly balanced times that it seems quite the opposite of a harmonious moment. It’s an uncer tain and risky period, we are helpless, it all seems to slip away beyond our control: there’s anger, frustration, concern, fear. New rules to follow, new emotions to handle.
A perfect equilibrium.
