Oh yum.

Ed Fella in his master’s thesis (Cranbrook, 1987)

"Design is assigned sign, playing air art with no caution but obedience, posing ordering systems as explanations and indulging the same self anew, while attending and singing in strict construct."

Explained by Vincent A. Carducci in his article “Spider’s Stratagem: The Deconstructive Web of Edward Fella” for Detroit Focus Quarterly

"In contrast to art, the contingencies of design are blatant. It is clearly in the service of media as an ideological disseminator. The designer is beholden to the client. Design is "air art," that is a simulacrum of "real" art. It plays with no caution but "obedience" — it is "free" only within certain limits ("good taste," "mass appeal," etc.). Its "freedom" is couched in notions of "expression," "creativity," "originality," etc. How, then, does one practice design?"

Basically, I like Ed Fella… I like how he thinks.

We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words—to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. - C.S. Lewis
we have a strategic plan, it’s called doing things - Herb Kelleher
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness. -  Ralph Waldo Emerson
The way to read a fairy tale is to throw yourself in. - W. H. Auden (poet)
Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is. - Mary Anne Radmacher
the dancefloor is a holy place and you are speaking in tongues - Olivia Malone (character from the new Skins series)
Live fast, die young, go all in. - DEV
