… Thought #99 • Does it mater that type cant be read? Do things really need to be legible all the time? When there is so much action, movement and suitable sound creating an atmosphere of entertainment, one has little time to take in the details of whats being said. This leads me to wonder….. does it really matter what we say in our conversations. How much detail do we actually take in and store? It could be the over all impression of what we put across, tone, gestures and aesthetics that we remember.  Just like in this film by Sebastian Lange, the over all atmosphere created by such a beautiful array of movement, with emphasis on certain details leaves us remembering it as a whole, a mood,  an emotion, or thinking dam! That’s some good animation….
