Photos are really important to build a project.
Collecting, Editing, cataloging is a process to get a final result.
About colours, colours change with the light. We see the way that we perceive, the colour is not in the object.
Colours change base on the altitude, the place where you are. The journey, travelling is very important to understand the settle difference between the colour change.
Craig: - " do you see yourself a composer? -
Pawson: - " I can say ...yes. "
Craig:-" There are two different type of composers: constructor and moulders. They are two different type of artists."
Craig: -" Architecture and Design are not art, but there are a lot of conjunctions. -"
