Secondly this is a unique opportunity to present some of my work, even though being restricted to one project that has obvious limitations, in a very accessible form. I consider the whole concept of ‘personal website’ as a little egocentric and vein and at the same time terribly intrusive exposing an intimate part of myself to the public, but at the same time looking for means to go further. Being aware of the contradiction between the desire for recognition or remaining anonymous is the root of my dilemma made me somewhat perplexed and hesitant about constructing a site. I enjoy the total freedom of expression, which is directly related to my insignificance and the desire to remain backstage. I fear recognition (Good or Bad) because of the bonds and ties that accompany it. Success is a frightening concept. If it had not been for my close circle of family and friends who have encouraged me to take this step I most probably would have been quite content to shelve this project together with a host of others. Unfortunately I have a responsibility in the process of creating. The ‘doing’ is the road to my personal enrichment. The products of these actions are potential seeds that may lead to some other form of creation. From this perspective I have come to terms with the concept making my work public.
Finally, as part of my life is dedicated to teaching, where
I consider myself as a paid student, this is a way of giving something back
to all those who have influenced and taught me within the confines of the
educational institution. The teaching process is not, and never been, a one
way flow of information, but an exchange and communication of concepts and
ideas between student and teacher. I feel privileged that I have had so many
students as teachers and regret that many of these students had so few teachers.
I do practice what I preach where design is a way of life.
