Research in and through practice
. theory with a little "t" vs theory with a big "T"
. be scholarly and academic BUT DON'T BE AFRAID TO SHOW THE LOVE OF YOUR CRAFT
. world of theory has little relevance outside of academia (we have briefs to follow on the outside)
. think about being a moral vegetarian; how may this inform practice?
.would you inform using this? impose?
.consider gestalt knowledge
. should be testing practice against theory...
...but what if theory can be informed by practice?
. Cant there be more interrelation?
. determinist viewpoint: cause and effect (David Pi (sp?))
.(cars/crappy 'good enough'design. quick fixes/bad. BAD. BAD)
the whole thing
in a nutshell
. The 'getting it' moment. The things it opens up, then applying it to the next task.
. like clicking your fingers
The suspension of temporality whilst engaged practically
Imagine a meaningless job forever. Now work harder.
