What is designing?
Is it to create something new?
Or is to restructure, remake or redo something supposedly better?

There are for me seven simple rules to follow
1 Addition
2 Subtraction
3 Reduction
4 Modify
5 Repeat
6 Overlap
7 Change boxes or Point of View

These are self explanatory. They all involve change, but they should be thought of as a way to change something, a process.

MC ESCHER used contrast and repetition to create this pattern of Horsemen. We may also say he used Positive and negative spaces.

This maybe taking the words outside of their "box" and changing the point of view to one that resembles nature
