|"Without aesthetic, design is either the humdrum repetition of familiar clich?s or a wild scramble for novelty. Without the aesthetic, the computer is but a mindless speed machine, producing effects without substance. Form without relevant content, or content without meaningful form."
"The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep."
