Left Brain, Right Brain

 

Left brain

I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.

Right brain

I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feat. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be

14. Don’t be cool. Cool is conservative fear dressed in black. Free yourself from limits of this sort.

 

From Bruce Mau´s Incomplete Manifesto of Growth.


Die Welt als Entwurf

 

“der zeitgeist hat keine antworten mehr. wir entwerfen weil wir suchen, nicht weil wir wissen. (…) es ist heute der entwurf selbst der offen legt. nicht mehr der zeitgeist. im entwurf wird gezeigt, was vor sich ging, was sache ist. die antworten liegen nicht mehr im raum des geistes, sie liegen in der sache.”
