Scale by Katerina Semenko

If one would tell you "I believe in you" and then "I believe in humanity", linguistically these two phrases are equal in their function, they are proportional. But the difference between them is a SCALE. If the first sentence is concrete and is a matter of "now and here" referring to a motivation on a personal level, the second is abstract, generalized and is stated as an attitude.

lecture "Modest Doctrine of Designer Existence" by Katerina Semenko


My new design lecture "Modest Doctrine of Designer Existence", that will be on this Thursday, April 21st, 7pm to 9pm at 422 Richards St #300, Vancouver, BC.

"The chances of both us and the Earth being in existence in this universe are one out of billions, and yet we exist. Just as how nature creates life from nothing, the same great pieces of art such as Bach's Sonata BWV 1001, Tolstoy's War and Peace, and Raphael's Sistine Madonna are created among the prose and routine. Whether a miracle will happen or not, it is a designer's unspoken duty to continuously seek for the impossible. Otherwise, the salt will lose its saltiness."
