Scaffolding

An odd post this one. Relevant to the next post, which (as this is a blog and posts are presented in reverse order, newest first) is probably the post you read before this one.

There was a “creative” agency that I worked at for some years. Full of designers. Commercial artists.

You would think that these people would see art everywhere they go. Have an appreciation of form and structure. I know I do.

Every now and then I take a picture of a very elaborate piece of scaffolding. The shape of the intersecting pieces they make and the depth I think are very interesting. They remind me of an Escher drawing.

However at this workplace – this graphic design workplace – full of graphic artists – I was mocked for my interest in scaffolding. Which I think says more about their lack of imagination (these so-called designers) than me.
