«We scratch, construct and manipulate the earth resources with our tools and artifacts, making buildings, fabricating structures, thereby creating and producing our manifestations of thinking, dreaming and tinkering. We are leaving marks, traces, roaming about and searching for beauty and nature often without real pre-set goals or destinations. In natural course of life walks, we are striving and following somewhat our ambitions and passions, but everything you do or undertake is structured or triggered by our will (automatic system), fuzzy approach (reflective system) and conventions while constantly being influenced by our worldly surroundings.Why are we doing what we are doing? How come we scar, cut, sculpt, ply, fold, score, crease, pinch, pull, push, blow and scissile our way through the earth resources? Why do we engage in visual and tacit interactions with such great ease and pleasure? How come than that we distant ourselves more and more from our physical sensorial perceptions and immerse ourselves gladly in virtual digital realities? Why are we so easily lured into visual stimulation, worshipping digital visual junk on high-definition screens? What if we bridge the widening gap between the analogue real and the virtual world? How about hybrid combinations?» (Wendrich et al., 2009, Bridging the Design Gap: Towards an Intuitive Design Tool — Proceedings ICSID World Design Conference — Singapore)
