ev’rything but design

design... creativity... concepts...
lots of shallow and hollow words. our world gets no more experienced, no more acted upon... it gets designed now.
there are creative people everywhere, in every rat hole, everyone is a designer.
and the world looks worse and worse. there is no content anymore, there is only its packaging. we live among the very packages. oscar wilde was right: the first principle of life is to be artificial at all costs. what the second principle is, nobody has ever found out yet. we build up a wall around us with a little help from our friends, the designers. they set anonymous brick stones, one on top of another one, because design breeds new design. design is in need of design. and designers give birth to new designers.
and still... nobody has an idea about that poor second life principle...
