notations / eighth lecture / June 11th / 2018


about a reference
we cannot deny

if we aim for a designing which
is distinctly marked
by our personal aesthetically
first we must ask
for which kind of reference  
we are determined
from our very early childhood:

/ the functional or
/ the narrative understanding
of how, who and why
we have to be

very soon we will understand
that functionality
has no personal language
and will never own it

so we have to ask ourselves
which is the reference
for speaking with
/ our own voice according
/ our autonomous will to design
our reality
independently from any
pre-given value and sense
