Designing Like a Gardener

I work for a long time, sometimes years, on the same canvas. But all this time, there are periods, sometimes quite long, when I’m not doing anything with it.

The important thing for me is that its point of departure –the shock that determined it– must be felt.

Things come slowly. My vocabulary of forms, for example –I didn’t discover it all at once. It formed it self almost in spite of me.

Things follow their natural course. They grow, they ripen. I must graft. I must water. Ripening goes on in my mind. So I’m always working at a great many things at the same time. And even in different fields.
