Dean DeLano

The neat and tidy ways of classification and categorization are dead. The world breaks boundaries, shatters borders and thrives as a separate entity from that which we construct and hope to contain. The mind reawakens when this fact is realized. Life is no longer linear and opportunities exist on the periphery, outside the narrow tunnel. New inspiration exists in minimal things. Even the rays of light through trees offers greater warmth. Categories don't interest me. Black, white, rich, poor, these are words designed for separation. Words separate. Silence is inclusive. In the quiet we begin to see the truth. From here, we can begin to think, and begin to accept. Inspiration comes from this.

The possibilities of design fascinate me. The shear potential mass of communication draws me to design and offers me hope for change. Art has always been about making statements and now we have the potential to make statements to more minds than were ever possible before. Communication is power. Our voices, meek and weary, can now be heard with greater resonance and conviction. Design is a messenger that bombards us with thoughts and points of view constantly and endlessly. It is everywhere. On your clothes, your television, your books and magazines, even fluttering behind your eyelids as you sleep. It forces us to wake up. It asks us to think. And perhaps most beautifully of all, it comes from a tiny, seemingly insignificant, mouse.
