a time to reflect

September 18, 2017

where do you find inspiration?

I want to share this

www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/vod/designtalksplus/20170914/

hear an interview with Tetsuya Noguchi

his perspective on the act of creating is deeply thoughtful

he creates detailed, miniature models of samurai

“human beings must live by the rules of their time, the world that they live in”

and believes that “good design is creating that thing that your environment calls for”

watch 73-year-old Satoshi Tachibana handstitching the intricate, detailed work of traditional armor

 look at the simple hanten? he is wearing

then there is the photo exhibit of Everett Kennedy Brown’s

“modern samurai – battling natural disasters and nuclear accidents”

his images are stunning

there is something for anyone who thinks of themselves as an artist

a lesson for all of us in this time of our history

“the idea of living for something greater than yourself”
