“Design helps us live a better life; décor helps us live a happier life.”
There are many things around us that seem to overlap. Consider photography vs. painting vs. collage; each is a creative activity, can enhance an interior or exterior space, and yet they are unique in tools, planning, and time. Each is appropriate in some surroundings or circumstances, but look out of place in others.
What about theatre vs. ballet vs. the cinema? What of cabinetmaking vs. construction vs. architecture? Dollmaking vs. sculpture vs. modelmaking?
Where is the boundary between art and life – is there one? I believe that ideas and concepts synthesized through creative play can be leveraged to improve our lives and communities. It’s almost certain that many items we use daily were inventions of happenstance.
