design without intentions

Paying attention and then not.  A flea infestation and then something not as small like the anteater at the zoo last Sunday.  The house across the street is emptied, its window is ajar and the curtain blows, and it's ordinary.  Opinions are strong about the right way to live these days.  But it's the night time that interests me and its design without intentions. 

John Hejduk and Colin Rowe, among so many of those post modernists, had a lot to say about such design.

I dreamt I was a tree in a courtyard.  Everybody was a busybody.  

Davis Gallery of Austin is part of WEST, West Austin Studio Tour, open Saturday and Sunday.
