“Art can not exist in the absence of design. Art is well-conceived and well-crafted. It achieves a mission, and through it the artist causes her audience to experience a shift in perspective. Design — even when its principles are applied intuitively and unconsciously — is inherent in the process of assessing and responding to all constraints, the media employed, the methods of work, refinement of vision, through to execution and presentation of the finished work. And design is so little talked about, so poorly understood, so frequently denigrated that it took me fifty years to recognize that design is the unifying field of my life's work.”
A short trip inside the mind of a designer who successfully develops works in the seemingly disparate fields of photography, computer software, art, landscape, furniture, and music, “Connecting the Dots”, by tracing details, puzzles, questions, observations and intentions as they inform a body of work, illuminates the art of design.
