It Continues

Our words fade away when the clarity of our work becomes obvious. The use of intricate metaphors can be useless in the presence of simplicity. Many hours, days and years ago this walk was started with other creatives and technologists. I started because of a tiny small voice on a winter night like a little child, it may have been long before that during a time I lived in the Sub Sahara. Maybe the gravity of its power, which translates into fulfillment, which translates into collaboration, which translates into love.

Everything is in the constant state of flux, stay in the moment of each situation as much as you can. Nothing moves from incomplete to complete, on the contrary, things go from complete to complete and then it continues.

As a young interactive designer in the early aughts, I came across an authoring animation tool for motion graphics called Macromedia Flash (later acquired by Adobe Systems), during its heyday many interactive technologists like myself were captivated by its ability to defy boundaries on the web, it gave every stale design vibration and life. One of the pioneers of the industry and Flash tool back then, was international designer Hillman Curtis.

In 2008 Mr Curtis and I met at his firm in Dumbo, Brooklyn New York. We discussed his participation as a feature for a future Visual Collaborative exhibition. The conversation was rich with ideas to be executed. It never manifested due too unforeseen circumstances. Hillman passed away several years later due to colon cancer. Through our conversations his legacy lives on. Your humility and gentleness conveyed strength.
