no as yes, neri oxman

”Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” Leonardo da Vinci

“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

don’t know where to begin. or end.

Neri incorporates every vision I had since I was a child. when asked what I wanted to do, it was all this. but I always lacked the words to explain it. my visions were beyond all the words for me as a kid.

since early childhood I knew that science and art are one being: science as a way of thinking, art as a way of feeling. I never ever understood people separating things when everything is connected. and naturing is in the middle of everything (nature should be a verb, like braining).

everyone has a role to play in this life. mine is I guess to observe, witness. Leonardo da Vinci lived centuries ago. Tesla a century ago. their visions and efforts live, inspiring others to break the rules. to think outside of the box.

In order to do what Neri does, I know I had to be born in totally different cultural environment. in another family with different values and support system. now I’m at peace coz acceptance is the key of transcendence.

I am in owe that She is out there doing wonders, thinking differently and connecting the ‘unconnectable’. my brain is like that. It used to drive me crazy that I never get a chance to show a creation of me as an ‘alien’, similar to wonders she and her team create. not anymore and this truly is a miracle. finally being at peace with myself.

we share the same birthday. a tiny miracle too, recently discovered. I deeply wish there will be more beings like Neri in the future. beings that easily unite and use art, engineering, science, design, coz that will be the new normal, the new way of human processing in the far distant future.

if you have netflix, watch ”abstract, art of design”, episode 2.

here is some of Neri’s lovely ted talk from 2015. enjoy ❤
