Not sure that {George Nelson} wasn't at at UW, just didnt have any proof of it
yet...its harder to prove a negative. I am reignited by ART X because
it reinforces my interest in the purity of art as being just as
important as business and treating it as such on a world scale, we
have a weird social climate today in which we pay lip service to the
idea of art...Everyone says art is important, but they "appreciate" it
more than understand it or cultivate it. In many cases people accept
fashion as an acceptable substitute for art...But, like Buckminster
Fuller said, "Use forces, don't fight them." I respect the rarefied
zones of high fashion and celebrity, and I am seeking to play with
them in my scarf company.
