Response to Pecha Kucha on Friday night.
1. I learned typography is not boring. Which I knew of course, but fun to see it presented historically going back thousands of years.
2. The last speaker closed with a slide that said “Create something”. And in his charming youthful, snowboard culture way, said that it didn’t matter if it was good or bad shit, just do it. The slide reminded me of Corita Kent, an artist and a nun, who had this to say on the matter of creating:
“Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail, there’s only make.”
Possibly also written by John Cage, but he’s well enough known, so I rather prefer the idea of the her penmanship being the one. Apparently they knew each other, so who knows, it may have been a collaboration.
