Aspen trees are modal clarity understandings for ‘relating to one another in good health’. To say that an interaction designer does not have ‘modal clarity’ when interaction design is ‘the art of managing modal infrastructure in a way that is simple to understand and easy to relate to‘ is to sabotage the persons reputation and ability to maintain and/or find new work which is a role I will never give anyone to have in my life.
If I quake when I write, that’s how I know I’m having an epiphany.
My genre research in art and music whether it be hyperreal, pop art, art nouveau, film noir, surrealist, hypersurrealist, DaDaist, existential, psychedelic or Macabre is for the purpose of being able to inform myself about future work contexts and bring new frameworks for understanding life contexts and life understanding into ‘future job contexts’. …because art imitates life and my ability to perform genre research will always be an important part of my work.
‘Application self-protection’ is the modal equivalent to ‘quaking while you write’.
Life insights are growth insights, and however much a person may enjoy ‘pretending not to speculate’ about what my insights may mean from a practical 🕴🏼. , it will never be their job to contextualize my insights based upon life perspectives or modal perspectives which places me into a category as having less ‘modal clarity’ than they do. I try to afford other engineers and project managers I’ve had the privilege of working with who manage modal infrastructure with the same level of respect (when I am given the opportunity).
