︎ The song remains, but not the same. Purpose. Revolution. (Factory Records1.) ︎ Along the axis of vulnerability2. Cross pollination. Transcendental aspiration. (Human connection3.) ︎ Style does not preclude substance. Brand. Screen. Interface. (Wim Crouwel4.) ︎ Language is meaningless sans fonts. Fonts alone are ineffective. (Graffiti.org5.) ︎ Curiosity. To experiment is to play, to live. Serendipity, perhaps. (Ghostly International6.)
