A matter of perspective

My friend Tracy forwarded me a link to the following video clip entitled, ICL New York State of Mind. After watching it, consider how art and design is obviously a creation of a particular artist, their unique perspective and tools available to them. As far as this applies to design, we as designers all have our unique influences and set of tools we find most appropriate. Although the blind artists featured in this video have challenges far beyond what we deal with as designers, there are some parallels here. In both cases, we have to creative in mediums which have limitations; we have to create things for clients that our often ‘blind’ in expressing what it is exactly they want; we have to acknowledge and address the variables of target markets which are often broad and not easy to define.

Ultimately, the point is, there exist variables that we need to deal with. How we approach these variables is the question. Do we look on them as compromises to our artistic integrity or challenges that can actually lead to better results? Are we discouraged by these variables or do we embrace them?

Anyhow, enjoy the video!
