Click here for updates on campus operations and click here for updates on UD's journey to a safe return to campus in the fall. I really think it's something that is pertinent to anyone's life and everyone should read it so I'm sharing it with you and my reflection on it! I believe as artists we are always looking to produce uniqueness and in return become better each thought, each trial and each production. This individually brings to that satisfaction of bettering each thought, each trial and each production we as artists produce. The better we take care of ourselves and better ourselves the more room to be who we are is allowed and this provides room for better thought process.

You have to be willing to grow. Growth is different from something that happens to you. You produce it. You live it. The prerequisites for growth: the openness to experience events and the willingness to be changed by them. Good is a known quantity. Good is what we all agree on. Growth is not necessarily good. Growth is an exploration of unlit recesses that may or may not yield to our research. Joy is the engine of growth.
Exploit the liberty in casting your work as beautiful experiments, iterations, attempts, trials, and errors. Take the long view and allow yourself the fun of failure every day. The wrong answer is the right answer in search of a different question. Collect wrong answers as part of the process. Ask different questions. A studio is a place of study. Use the necessity of production as an excuse to study. Everyone will benefit. John Cage tells us that not knowing where to begin is a common form of paralysis.
His advice: begin anywhere. Growth happens. Whenever it does, allow it to emerge. Learn to follow when it makes sense. Let anyone lead. The market and its operations have a tendency to reinforce success. Resist it. Allow failure and migration to be part of your practice. Growth is fueled by desire and innocence. Assess the answer, not the question. Imagine learning throughout your life at the rate of an infant. The space between people working together is filled with conflict, friction, strife, exhilaration, delight, and vast creative potential.
Every object has the capacity to stand for something other than what is apparent. Work on what it stands for. Time is genetic. Today is the child of yesterday and the parent of tomorrow. The work you produce today will create your future. Hybridize your tools in order to build unique things. Even simple tools that are your own can yield entirely new avenues of exploration.
Remember, tools amplify our capacities, so even a small tool can make a big difference. You can travel farther carried on the accomplishments of those who came before you. And the view is so much better. Marshall McLuhan did this. Expand the lexicon. The new conditions demand a new way of thinking. The thinking demands new forms of expression. The expression generates new conditions.
By maintaining financial control, we maintain creative control. Every collaborator who enters our orbit brings with him or her a world more strange and complex than any we could ever hope to imagine. By listening to the details and the subtlety of their needs, desires, or ambitions, we fold their world onto our own.
Neither party will ever be the same. The bandwidth of the world is greater than that of your TV set, or the Internet, or even a totally immersive, interactive, dynamically rendered, object-oriented, real-time, computer graphic—simulated environment.
Try to get as close as you can. Great liberty exists when we avoid trying to run with the technological pack. Try using old-tech equipment made obsolete by an economic cycle but still rich with potential.
Jump fences. Disciplinary boundaries and regulatory regimes are attempts to control the wilding of creative life. They are often understandable efforts to order what are manifold, complex, evolutionary processes.
Our job is to jump the fences and cross the fields. People visiting the studio often comment on how much we laugh. Growth is only possible as a product of history. Without memory, innovation is merely novelty. History gives growth a direction. But a memory is never perfect. Every memory is a degraded or composite image of a previous moment or event.
It means that every memory is new, a partial construct different from its source, and, as such, a potential for growth itself.

Bruce Mau is a well known self-taught Canadian designer who, until recently, worked primarily with brands and environments.
