    Bruce Mau Design 12 Strategies and Neemee.com 

    From Bruce Mau Design: “2.  Scale: the end of the discrete object. — Every object incorporates other objects just as it is itself incorporated by other systems.

    This refers to my earlier statement that “Scale is Meaning and Meaning is Scale”.  That statement translated into Culture Waves goes something like this:  “Wave Evidence defines a Human Truth, Human Truths define Human Behavior, and Human Behavior drives Wave Evidence” a bit circular I know but his statement is as well.  Ultimately, he is taking a Macro to Micro and then back again view of the interconnectedness of things. This is all fine and dandy until you get to the question of how this actually happens.  As a design principle its easy to apply this approach to a closed system and then rifle up and down the scales of things to define their connections but when you get to Human Behavior and the milieu of things that it touches it’s a different issue. This is where our Folksonomy and Ontology come into play.  Together they form a Folktology (I suspect that’s a word he will respect if he’s not using it already).

    Repeating Tiles

    The notion that the “end of the discrete object” is here needs a practice to support it, a language to define it and share it.  How do you understand that twelve hundred year old karakusa (in japanese) or arabesque patterns are anything more than innovative pattern making in a world of adaptive computer modeling.  How do you understand that this Green Echo behavioral evidence also has to do with Abraham Maslow’s notion of “Belonging” without making that inference yourself or having someone share it with you.  Besides the fact the Persian origin of these patterns are organic in nature, Green Echo sits Ontologically within Maslow’s Belonging category and the evidence is tagged with these terms, “green echo, belonging, design, deity complex”.  Take a look at the other thoughts within neemee also tagged with those ontological terms and you start to get a sense of the connectability of the CultureWaves Ontology.  The Tag Cloud associated with these thoughts then begins to provide a full picture of the very human concepts associated with these thoughts.  The Neemee/CW Folktology allows individuals to identify and tag discrete objects but then systematically incorporates them into larger connected structures of Human Behavior.

    Bruce Mau Design 12 Strategies and Neemee.com 

    From Bruce Mau Design: “1. Time: consider objects as events — (How does an object—understood as an occupation of space—unfold in time?)

    Quite literally, we are tracking objects over time. This is a tertiary comment on his statement but who else is tracking objects quarter by quarter relative to a list of evaluative sites. We are, but what he’s really talking about is spatial perception. He does say that space is meaning, I have a similar statement that scale is meaning but that’s a different story. “Objects as events” is essentially saying that objects have meaning over time. We say something similar that I think he will get. “We are finding Objects for Ideas rather than Ideas for Objects”. Let me interpret that. The typical advertising modus is to fixate on the object (chip, car, political position, etc.) and ideate around that. We take objects and evaluate them relative to ideas (Human Truths). So as objects change over time relative to say, “If it has a basis in nature, it just makes sense.”, then the objects in Green Echo are marking the event of how people perceive the convergence of the natural world and the objects they interact with on a daily basis. Objects are events. We group them into discernible geographies (Waves) and define what the events mean with “Human Truths”.
