site is the official global presentation of a design theory and
methodology I have been developing called Organic Multiplicity.
This theory is based upon understanding natural processes as being
integral to design processes and the importance of contextual relevancy
and subjectivity in the determination of a design solution. Or,
in the literal translation of word grouping, Organic Multiplicity
can be understood in very general terms as an appreciation of the
natural state of things being manifold and various.
contained within my portfolio site, soshea.com,
the theory's presentation seemed too personal for an ideology that
promotes inclusiveness and pluralism. To be true to the spirit of
Organic Multiplicity, other voices within the creative community
must be a part of its dialog and development. This realization was
the impetis for the creation of this site.
an emerging theory, the continuing development of Organic Multiplicity
should occur within its own dedicated, native environment, free
from other contextual references that could limit or distort its
evolution. The importance of having a native and open contextual
landscape in which to grow a theory is especially indicated when
considering the randomness of public reaction and interaction and
the many ways in which content may need to evolve. To a certain
degree, this unknown future is a part of the interest and intrigue
I have for this site.
site is also my response to current global geo-political and socio-economic
conditions and their relationship to the design professions. As
form givers to industry and the engines of commerce, designers play
an intimate role in the the development of humankind. It is my hope
and belief that this site and the theory contained herein will have
value and meaning to all of the occupational activities associated
with the word "design" and shall be a catalist for positive
change, along with the many other efforts by the world community.
this site is a personal invitation for you to express yourself in
various ways. While I am proud of my contributions, this site and
its theory are not for me alone. You're involvement is just as important
to the future development of Organic Multiplicity. Your voice, your
observations and insights, and your creativity are an important
part of the lifeblood of this site. And so, I invite you to express
yourself and be a valued part of this site.
