On Balance and Design
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“Every time something disturbs your Balance is a beautiful opportunity.
A learning opportunity, in understanding the causes and practicing recovery.
A creative opportunity, in designing an optimal response and the learning protocol itself.”
“What is the output of the design process?”
“A set of practical questions for every aspect of the process.
When x, what y? (question template)
When you lose balance, what y? (question template)
When you lose balance, what is the optimal response?
Recovering balance has a mental and physical component. Translated in question form:
When you lose balance, what do you want to think?
When you lose balance, what do you want to do?”
