a clear answer is more

"All (art) is done by

We don't solve old
problems, we make
new ones.

We're kind of tired of clarity.
We used to be, probably
still are, sensible about it.

We think content
is the new aesthetic.

some in design,
some not in design.

*/ EVERYTHING IS ( A _________ IN ) PROGRESS /

We keep our dictionaries out of order.
As in, we tear out the pages and rearrange the order. It's quite beautiful.
It isn't very effecient as a resource in
the traditional sense, but the internet
now provides that appeal anyway.
The way of going about it is not yet
perfectly methodical, which should be
a more refined approach than it is or
has been. But it shouldn't be rushed.
This way treats the print dictionary
with respect and as the story it is.

Other word animations in development:
> Election + Ejection
> Wonder + Wander
> Chance + Change
> Now + New

For us, the idea of looking up a
word is an uncertain and endless
task. Because what you do when
you look up a word in the print
dictionary is really, opening up
the entire dictionary, not just the
location of the word you are looking
for. And then, let’s say you do
make it to the word you are looking
for in one piece, what happens,
or has the probability of happening,
is a journey that will last much longer
and take more abrupt and gradual
turns than you had ever imagined
because you cannot stay within the boundaries of that single word.

Every word within the definition
of every other word is indeed its
own entry point–that make up a
system of many, many entry
points–for distractions and
discoveries of that day or any other.

We look around first, to see what
exists in front of us already. And
then we determine what is necessary.

We also try to imagine what T.S.
Eliot's first words might have been,
and more tragically, how much sooner
they would have come had he been put
on medication for being a silent little
boy until he was four years old.Those
words, more than likely, would not
have been his poignant, and seemingly uneccessary, statement: "Look mother
it's raining out."

Q: Re: what the fuck is up with these animated gifs and other moving things all over the page?
A: Well, eventually people will either go blind or crack up over it all and then it won't matter anymore. Also, once that trend is over it will stop, until it makes sense for it to occur and then it should happen.

Q: Will you send a practice related email at 3:44 a.m.?
A: Yes. Of course.

Q: Intonation or Connotation?
A: This is a tough one. I enjoy both. I'm sorry, but I can't choose.

Q: Is it true that if you can make it in New York, you can make it
A: It depends. With design, or as some high end designers work,
as it is done in New York, I do not think so. I believe most designers
in New York would fail miserably outside of New York (maybe not
in London or Berlin). Their vision and outputs are so accute and isolating–perfect for New York where there is enough of an audience
even for the work that is cared about or relevant to so few.

Q: If you were a symbol, what would you look like?

(see: empty set)

Q: Footnotes or Endnotes?
A: Footnotes–by a wide margain.

Q: Where do you begin?
(I'm sorry. It shouldn't start with empathy; you should already have that.)
A1: You start with what exists already and what you know already.
A1a: Listening. Understanding. Where it fells natural to begin.
A1b: Maybe you realize that you don't begin at all, or that you began
a long time ago.
A2: "When" is also a necessary question...but let's talk about that
later. The answer to where is: I believe it is (or can be) different every
time. Usually, it's with the question or the problem, and then making
some observations, asking what do I already know and not know,
listening to the people involved. Rarely this is not the start, and in those cases it can begin from just about anywhere: form, note taking, output,
etc. It is similar to how the entire process has the possibility to be
different each time. It's all dependent on the problem–or more interestingly–the question.

Q: Ok, so when do you begin?
A: Now. Immediately. (How)?: Urgently. Not recklessly.

Q: Yes, but what's the output?
A: Thank you for that question. The answer is long. Well, it's a
long list anyway. The ouput is

Q: "Thank you for that piece of design. Now, can you make it go?"
A: No. Wait. Actually, well, sure. Of course I can make it go.
But I won't. Not in this instance, for that purpose.

Q: Can a conceptual or speculative desinger make a living?
Or, what I mean is–
A: –I know exactly what you mean. What you mean is can the
conceptual worker produce a result satisfactory to the practical
real world without comprimising. I don't know the answer, but
it's probably yes.

Q: –––
A: I know what you're going to ask. There is no "We".

Q: Did you live in a tent on the rooftop of an artit's loft in NY?
A: Yes, for a month; when I moved here for graduate studies.
But it wasn't a tall building. A two story loft off the Bowery.
So, it wasn't bad at all. I ended up staying in the loft for the
rest of the year.

Q: Do you collect receipts?

Q.: Do you have a twin brother?
A: Yes.

Q: Do you look alike?
A: Not really.

A: -----No, we can't read each other's mind.
Q: How did you know I was going to ask that?

Q: You have a cool name
A: That's not a question.

Q: If you claim to never finish anything, how do you get paid?
A1: Copyright infringement.
A2: I always complete the work, but never finish it.
A3: It doesn't matter. Let's just do something fantastic.

Q: Could you at one point dunk a basketball on a regulation height rim?
A: No. Why do you ask.

Q: But, you're white.
Q: And only 6 feet tall

The frequency, orientation, density, and material
of our bars is what will
make us different from one another.

Q: What's your favorite color?
A: Black & White.

Q: What's your favorite kind of milkshake?
A: Black & White

Q: Do you believe in process?
A1: I believe in: observation, improvisation, spontaneity,
instinct,second guessing, using what exists already, tiral/error.
A2: There is an initial reaction–very intense–at the first moment
of an idea or a projcet, when you have thoughts, solutions,
fragments flushing through your mind and then all of that
wanes and at some point patience returns to help filter
the results. This isn't a matter of incessant refinement, it's
really a matter of instinct and knowing when it's right. And,
sometimes a primary element of input will be found, by
accident perhaps, or by filtering curiosities very finely, at a
point several months or years after the output has been
established...and then you'll realize you have a process
that relies on chance, assymetry and continuous discovery,
among other things.

Q: Will anyone have made it this far in the Q/A?
A: We'll see. I hope so. This isn't one of those manifesto
Q/A. Or one where the questions are generic and the answers
predictable. For example: Q: So what do you do in your spare
time, which of course I would say something unoriginal with
zero insight like A:"Mostly playing with my cats, watching the
internet (netflix watch-instantly and hulu), treating myself to
pork-fat heavy meals (and therefore slowly draining my bank
account), riding my bike around Brooklyn, impulsive procrasti-
cleaning, and hanging out with my (girl)friend/friends." Of course,
I don't do any of these things, but you get the point. Plus,
this is posted on the internet, anyone who knows anything
about the internet knows people, whether interested in the
content or not, get distracted, so we are keeping this fun
(still relevant) and succinct. (Except this entry) (Sorry, reader.)

Q: Is there a difference between inspiration and influence?
A. Yes. A large difference. It's like the difference between
a song off an album and the album. One is usuallly fleeting,
forgotten by the time the next song plays and the other usally
lasts forever, debilitating you, and stealing part of you. Maybe
it's similar to lust and love. Although, I never saw a difference
in either of those. They are also the same. For me, I cannot lust
for someone I do not love, and cannot love someone I do not
lust for. Of course, I love some of my friends, but that is different.

Hollowed out, white, placed on any surface to fill in Twin Tower cut out.
Alternatively, this can be used as a stencil template. Pics to come.

The second application of the graphic is to place on top of existing
iconic New York City photography and fill in the void of the Twin Towers.

1. ELECT/EJECT. The pathos of selection. Do we vote in favor of someone, or in opposition of someone else.
Secondarily, but just as interesting, the examination of the closeness of these two words structurally and emotionally.

Garish, indeed. Not my typical use of color, or I don't typically use color.
Maybe I should stop.
