Many times I’ve been trying to define who I am and what I am doing while creating a new object. In the course of time there have emerged two basic methods, which could be described as the magic trick & the gardeners method.
A magician makes the object emerge all of a sudden and out of nowhere, like in a magic trick. The drawback of this approach is that there is not always time to become aware of the seriousness of the process. Alternatively, the gardener grows the object by carefully tending it, thereby reducing the risk of mistakes in design by liberating oneself from immoderate inclination.. And sometimes in the creation of the object both methods are employed simultaneously.
My strongest inclination is to tend my work like the gardener.
