it embraces any theory or style given its contextual pertinence,
Organic Multiplicity exists as a design theory and methodology without
a signature style or visual construct. By practicing design in this
manner, the dialog of design can be focused upon the contextual
relevance of a design solution, rather than squabbling between entrenched
camps of specific visual doctrine.
creative freedom encourages us to develop an elasticity of expression.
This creative flexibility enables us to develop solutions that are
more suitable and sensitive to a specific contextual environment
than would be afforded by more myopic conceptual or visual perspectives.
Moreover, by promoting greater depth in expression, Organic Multiplicity
impels us to evolve and grow cognitively and creatively, enabling
us to develop a much richer and more harmonious creative working
understanding design as the construct of pragmatic and quantifiable
objectives set within conditional forces of personal expression
and subjective interpretation and evaluation, Organic Multiplicity
offers a more contextually appropriate manner in which to discuss
and interpret the practice of design. By not having an allegiance
to a specific visual formula, we are free to analyze and critique
the various theories and visual vernaculars of design in an unbiased
and objective manner.
this sense, we are able to understand the analysis of design as
the observation and evaluation of conceptual ecosystems that are
present within a larger contextual environment, constructed from
objective and subjective forces.
As stated above, by validating the subjective nature of design,
we are then free to focus our attention upon the content of a given
solution, rather than its expression. What's important is its conceptual
relevance to the contextual environment. Are the needs and desires
of a given design project successfully addressed by a corresponding
solution? And, within a range of subjective solutions, what are
the similarities and differences between them and how do they relate
to the nature of the problem at hand.
of the most interesting outcomes of accepting subjectivity within
design is in the understanding of paradox. Whereas more narrowly
defined conceptual references disavow the relevance of contradictory
stances, Organic Multiplicity accepts contradictory expressions
of a design solution, as long as they are contextually appropriate.
Indeed, a given solution may include contradictory relationships
in order to give a greater depth to the fulfillment a project's
requirements. In this manner, paradox can be considered as a form
of expressive response to a design project. On a final note, the
occurrence of paradox within design harmonizes with the presence
of paradox within nature itself, as nature can be considered as
symbiotic cycles of life and death.
