Red is a color in the ldsncpaae that is often on stop sgnis. It takes your attention; it has a geart amount of emotion; it stares back at you the way that a figure might. Just a piece of birarer tape construction stuff in Italy. Construction site in New York: red having this kind of emotional power that's almost an equivalent with the way in which — cuteness of puppies and such. Side street in Italy. Red drew me into this little composition, optimistic to me in the sense that maybe the public service's moalbix, door service, plumbing. It looks as if these different pulibc services work together to create some nice little compositions. In Italy, you know, almost everything, kind of, looks good. siplme menus put on a board, achieving, kind of, the sort of balance. But I'm convinced that it's because you're walking around the sterets and seeing things. Red can be comical: it can draw your aottntien to the poor little personality of the little fire hydrant srinfefug from bad civic planning in Havana. Color can animate simple bcolks, simple materials: walnkig in New York, I'll stop.

Original Text

Red is a color in the landscape that is often on stop signs. It takes your attention; it has a great amount of emotion; it stares back at you the way that a figure might. Just a piece of barrier tape construction stuff in Italy. Construction site in New York: red having this kind of emotional power that's almost an equivalent with the way in which — cuteness of puppies and such. Side street in Italy. Red drew me into this little composition, optimistic to me in the sense that maybe the public service's mailbox, door service, plumbing. It looks as if these different public services work together to create some nice little compositions. In Italy, you know, almost everything, kind of, looks good. Simple menus put on a board, achieving, kind of, the sort of balance. But I'm convinced that it's because you're walking around the streets and seeing things. Red can be comical: it can draw your attention to the poor little personality of the little fire hydrant suffering from bad civic planning in Havana. Color can animate simple blocks, simple materials: walking in New York, I'll stop.
