Ship of Theseus
I did this booklet as the written report for my independent work with David Reinfurt, on time. And its kind of my first stab at design writing, which is like this entire field of writing that concerns design in a very broad sense. So often design writing isn't actually about graphic design details but sort of broader ideas that can influence design thinking. And its– the format is loosely inspired by things I had seen written by different authors in *Bulletins of the Serving Library* and *Dot Dot Dot* and its kind of meant to be like the a discussion on time, ideas about design and identity overall. And it has little to do with my actual independent work which is the uhm exploration of different watch faces for the Apple Watch. To the extent that there is kind of two competing pieces in here. One is the text, which is kind of just a general or a specific I guess discussion of design, identity, and sort of thinking about this idea of true form that Max Bill proposed in his essay *Continuity and Change* uh so there's that and there's also the images which are uh screenshots of each different watch face I designed throughout the semester. And what I kind of like about it is that the two are actually really uh intricately linked in that each image corresponds to what I'm talking about at any given point. But uh there's kind of this unresolved like like there's lack of clarity that I like because it kind of forces the reader to dig in and try to understand why are these images of watch faces being talked about in this discussion of time and design.
