The Laws of Simplicity (by John Maeda)
The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful reduction.
Organization makes a system of many appear fewer.
Savings in time feel like simplicity.
Knowledge makes everything simpler.
Simplicity and complexity need each other.
What lies in the periphery of simplicity is deﬁnitely not peripheral.
More emotions are better than less.
In simplicity we trust.
Some things can never be made simple.
Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful.
11 January – 30 March 2008 The Kunsthaus Zürich offers a glimpse at an unknown facet of the work of the great 20th-century American photographer. Forty years after the artist’s death, original prints by Edward Steichen (1879-1973) for Vanity Fair and Vogue are only now available to the public. In the 1920s and 1930s Steichen was at the height of his career as a photographer, and some of the images he created during that period for the magazines published by Condé Nast are among his most striking. Organized by the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, and the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis, in collaboration with Kunsthaus Zürich.
