It’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong.

Every now and then, I give myself a time to re-explore myself just to make sure that I am doing the right thing for myself. And in this exploration, I come across interesting characters and lifes that either inspires me or lets me understand myself more clearly. Usually there always has been this time period of 6 months for my self exploration. Yes, exactly 6 months of setting urself free from rules and restarting your journey.

I met Richard Feynman after I completed by A level, though I was being introduced to him during my physic class by my physic teacher. I had exactly 6 months to explore him in/out. I picked up his famous book : "Surely you must be joking, Mr Richard Feynman.", the rest is history. Every now and then, I try my best to introduce to others, but I leave the rest to them. And today, I am trying again to re-introduce him through these wonderful videos.

The Hero

Learning to fight and trying to live for your own sake,

in this crazy world, finding inspiration is hard.

But in the midst of many heros and characters,

Steve genuienly stood as the ONE for me.

More than anything, it was his perspective and understanding of the world,

which I have come to respect over time.

I believe inspiration never dies,

it lives on.

RIP Steve.

Thoughts on Design by Paul Rand

I haven’t changed my mind about modernism from the first day I ever did it…. It means integrity; it means honesty; it means the absence of sentimentality and the absence of nostalgia; it means simplicity; it means clarity. That’s what modernism means to me…

— Lecture, A Paul Rand Retrospective, Cooper Union, Oct. 3, 1996

Good design adds value of some kind, gives meaning, and, not incidentally, can be sheer pleasure to behold; it respects the viewer’s sensibilities and rewards the entrepreneur.

— Design Form and Chaos
Without play, there would be no Picasso. Without play, there is no experimentation. Experimentation is the quest for answers.

Mies van der Rohe once said that being good is more important than being original. Originality is a product, not an intention.

Steal Like an Artist: Austin Kleon on Combinatorial Creativity

Few days back I had posted a three series long video with a title "Everything is a Remix". The focus of these idea is that nothing is original and everything is a mass-up of previous works. Though this thought might be frustrating for some of the artists who believes in pure originality, but it is true in many extent that originality doesn't exist.

Ideas are always shared and borrowed. What matters most is the attitude with which an artist take upon others work. There are many who simple copy blatantly.  With the same reasoning and principal, there is another bloggers who have stumbled upon an interesting result of his own works.

Nothing is completely original. All artists’ work builds on what came before. Every new idea is just a remix or a mashup of two previous ideas.”
