The coupling of glazed-fired tile with building exteriors creates a vacuum for paint sales. Tiles like magazine pages can become a veneer for anything. These throwback suitcases, laminated with magazine pages are ready for the road. Memory lane or even a trumped up safari!
The coupling of two ideas, the side by side or two diverse individuals, the merging of conflicting ideas…. All that different making stuff has the wonderful capacity to potentiate — the energy, to create ab nihilo a new understanding a new idea a new world. So often we want to defend tradition or even descry modernism and in the process we so often forget that we have creaturely creativity that can couple opposites to make all things new. We learned that from the Master.
