"I can't help being commited to words, narratives, movies, even though I no longer believe in them, superseded as they have been by numbers, equations, diagrams, graphs & models."

"autonomy can be an intention but never a goal. 'Belief' & 'Utopia' & 'Autonomy' might be the impetus for a design, but the finished design should never be 'believed' or 'Utopian,' and it can never be 'autonomous.' Design stops when people start; design is never the final solution, because the world gets in the way."
