Perception of Perfection

 

When asked for his description of Paradise, Johnny Cash answered:-
“This morning, with her, having coffee”.
If asked  “… ” Oh, wouldn’t you want to know.

“I think perfection is ugly. Somewhere in the things human make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion”.
To be perfectly honest, I can’t agree more with Yohji Yamamoto.
With perfection comes normality, average, it’s all the same.
Then again, it’s our individual perception of ‘perfect’ that is debatable. You could easily see the world through the eyes of what you define as ‘perfect’- Truth.

O, the colour ‘Black’, ‘Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy- but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don’t bother you- don’t bother me.” Yohji Yamamoto.
Black is perfect.

Seal is a model example of perfect imperfections at it’s finest.
A sexy man with a sexy voice.
Yes it has.
“Yes, it’s been an uphill journey, It’s sure’s been a long way com in’, yes it has. It’s been real hard ever step of the way. But I believe, I believe”

Bed time stories..

Too tired to sleep even to fix the edging & spacing. 

Slanted and non linear. Relevant and not relevant. 

Fighting the eye shut. Perhaps random.

Impossible

It’s impossible to describe this talent. It was by a strange coincidence that I was came across Muhammad El-Mahdy (known as Mahdy) work. I know very little about him but what’s there to know?

His focus is Calligraphy, Lettering and Typography. Illustrated below is what I would describe simplicity at it’s finest level of sophistication; he can write one word twenty different ways – incredible.

And talking about the ‘Mustaheel’, It’s my absolute favourite Kathem Al – Saher that sings about what is impossible to describe.
