Connecting the Dots to Create Magic at the Intersections

Jun 11, 2018
It is important to develop the ability to see the connections and consider both the good and the challenging relationships between objects, people, and places….

When I was a young boy growing up in Melbourne in the 1970s, I often looked up into the vastness of space and all the stars in the night sky. I reflected on our place in the universe and considered our connections to all the possible planets and life forms that were out there beyond our vision. Possibilities we could only wonder about, not fully understand.

As time has marched on, the practice of seeing connections between things has been a constant throughout my life and work. It is important to develop the ability to see the connections and consider both the good and the challenging relationships between objects, people, and places—as well as the interactions that happen at the intersections in between.

當我還是 1970 年代在墨爾本長大的小男孩時,我經常仰望浩瀚的太空和夜空中的所有星星。 我反思了我們在宇宙中的位置,並考慮了我們與超出我們視野的所有可能行星和生命形式的聯繫。 我們只能想知道,不能完全理解的可能性。

隨著時間的推移,在我的生活和工作中,看到事物之間聯繫的做法一直是不變的。 重要的是培養觀察聯繫的能力,並考慮物體、人和地點之間的良好和具有挑戰性的關係——以及發生在它們之間的交叉點的相互作用。
