-A portrait in grey-

‘A classic definition of dirt is that it is matter out of place: dirt is the label we attach to what we perceive as disorder, a state that is often regarded as threatening’

A woman clasping her hands around her knees – waiting
A woman intimately involved with her brother-in-law
A woman recently laid off – scared and elated
A woman driving a brown-metallic convertible
A friendly vivacious woman – on the verge of existential crisis

Her voyage is a relentless hunger for less routine

-A portrait in pale blue-

‘The impression of efficiency was, of course, greatest if all the desks in an office were the same, or at least designed according to the same system’

A man walking out of a corner office
A man without assumptions – resolute and nimble
A man differentiating between talent and value
A man balancing on a tightrope – standing on his head
A wry- ironic man – stunned by a party whisper

His voyage is a stakeout for unguarded moments


Quotes from: Objects of Desire – Design and Society 1750-1980 – by Adrian Forty – Thames & Hudsom
