Behind the Curtain

"I think perfection is ugly.
Somewhere in the things humans make,
I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion."

- Yohji Yamamoto


I think perfection is intimidating.
Somewhere in the human brain is a need to create bullshit philosophies
to justify not having to strive towards something that is very difficult to achieve.

- Alexis Smolensk

I think perfection is subjective and difficult.
It is this that makes it intimidating; the fear of the work and the fear that others will not value your work as you do.
And yet we humans have a need to strive for it.
Non-striving is merely denial, anger, bargaining, despair.

Hmm.

I don't know if it's appropriate or ironic that I think the few example of Mr. Yamamoto's clothing are absolutely uninspired and even downright ugly as sin.
