Origami, the centuries-old Japanese art, is all about the ability to fold a simple sheet of paper into incredibly elegant objects that are more complex than they look. This principle of illusion is also employed in the design world, and is manifested in a wide variety of elegant furniture: forms that appear to be weightless.
moreorlessJazz 8 likewise stands for artistic lightness, in both music and design. It?s about the lightness in our perception, and the artistic achievement of those responsible. Swing, for example, has a special vibrancy about it that has us feeling how the world drifts effortlessly through space ? and how something that normally only stamps is suddenly tender-footed. Easy, right? Anyone who?s ever sat at a drum kit will know ?what it takes for things to start swinging??
Check out ?Devil May Care? to experience the natural swing of Raul Midón. Or Bert Kaempfert, whose horn arrangements sound like elephants drifting blissfully along. Does it get any better?
