pictures and words

… from marian bantjes

…It’s very common for designers and people in the visual arts to feel like we’re not contributing enough. Or worse, that all we’re doing is contributing to landfill. Here I am showing you some pretty visuals and talking about aesthetics but I’ve come to believe that truly imaginative visual work is extremely important in society. Just in the way that I’m inspired by books and magazines of all kinds, conversations I have, movies, so I also think, when I put visual work out there, into the mass media, work that is interesting, unusual, intriguing, work that maybe opens up that sense of inquiry in the mind, that I’m seeding the imagination of the populous, and you just never know who is going to take something from that and turn it into something else. Because inspiration is cross-pollinating… I want as many people as possible to see my work. I actually really feel that it’s worthwhile to spend my valuable and limited time on this earth in this way…
