The image above is the visual piece that accompanies a blog posting based on American’s love of “stuff”.  To read the full blog post, and learn more about creative action for collective good, visit The Living Principals blog. Award winning product designer Yves Behar says it best –

“As designers we need to really think about how we can create a different relationship with our work and the world…I think it’s the values that we put into projects that ultimately create the greater value.”

In relation to the landscape, our stuff has to go somewhere.  Projects should be focused on the creation of timeless spaces, replacing the quick fix approaches that will require maintenance in the future.  As we get closer to 2011, the out of sight / out of mind mentality becomes more outdated and must come to an end.  Living from a suitcase for the past seven months has brought a fresh outlook to previous dependency on my “stuff”.

Until next time,
