This year, I tried a little design experiment at work. In the end, I had to agree that it was the wrong solution for the design. However, my defense left a spark behind, in the back of my head. That spark quickly began to smoke, and soon it turned into a flame. Before I knew it, I was submitting “Bauhaus In The Browser” to some conferences. Much to my surprise, they accepted it! I had to get to work.
I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading about Bauhaus, the influential early twentieth century school of art. I’m learning so much about the school that I never knew before. Given my recent experience of working at The Evergreen State College, I’ve found the similarities between my current workplace and Bauhaus rather striking.
