I am happy and grateful I am writing a book for my thesis! (along with coming up with a project)

Finally, I am getting a taste of the real complexity of the process of linear organization of different and sometimes vaguely related ideas into a coherent “story”. I used to think that coming up with ideas and putting them down in a controlled language was a challenge. Now I see that organizing them in a consistent fashion into a body that is “one”, “whole” and autonomous is a whole other universe!

I am also beginning to understand what Sanford Kwinter meant, when he told me that he was not interested in blogging – an accumulation of unrelated individual pieces of experience, spitted out at random; in contrast, he was interested and sensed the value in a hundred pieces of experience lived through and merged together into a “one”. Now I get it.

It’s funny how sometimes I lose myself among the lines while writing a longer blog post. Now – it is a book, and keeping up with myself, my thoughts and characters is HARD! Thus, since recently, I caught myself looking at books like “Godel Escher Bach” with a whole different understanding and a certain reverence…

I’ve been lucky enough to find one of the most influential books of my childhood on-line today. Share the dream: Richard Bach. Jonathan Livingston Seagull

We have finally finished and published (on-line, hard copy is in preparation) the book with our ideas for redeveloping Tallinn, Estonia. The book is comprised of academic projects, prepared by my course at the Academy of Arts during the 2009/2010 academic year.
