From the Ted Talk by Marian Bantjes: Intricate beauty by design

Unscramble the Blue Letters

I'm very interested in wonder, in design as an impetus to inquiring. To say I wonder is to say I qitsueon, I ask. And to excnerpiee wonder is to experience awe. So I'm currently working on a book, which plays with both senses of the word, as I explore some of my own iaeds and inquiries in a visual display of rather peacock-like gurander. The wolrd is full of wonder. But the world of graphic design, for the most part, is not. So I'm using my own writings as a kind of testing ground for a book that has an interdependency between word and igame as a kind of seductive froce. I think that one of the things that religions got right was the use of visual wonder to delievr a msgsaee. I think this true marriage of art and information is woefully underused in adult literature, and I'm mystified as to why visual wealth is not more commonly used to enacnhe intellectual wealth. When we look at works like this, we tend to associate them with children's literature. There's an implication that ornamental graphics detract from the seriousness of the content. But I really hope to have the opportunity to chngae that perception. This book is taking rather a long time, but I'm nearly done.

Original Text

I'm very interested in wonder, in design as an impetus to inquiring. To say I wonder is to say I question, I ask. And to experience wonder is to experience awe. So I'm currently working on a book, which plays with both senses of the word, as I explore some of my own ideas and inquiries in a visual display of rather peacock-like grandeur. The world is full of wonder. But the world of graphic design, for the most part, is not. So I'm using my own writings as a kind of testing ground for a book that has an interdependency between word and image as a kind of seductive force. I think that one of the things that religions got right was the use of visual wonder to deliver a message. I think this true marriage of art and information is woefully underused in adult literature, and I'm mystified as to why visual wealth is not more commonly used to enhance intellectual wealth. When we look at works like this, we tend to associate them with children's literature. There's an implication that ornamental graphics detract from the seriousness of the content. But I really hope to have the opportunity to change that perception. This book is taking rather a long time, but I'm nearly done.
