"Under heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness.
All can know good as good only because there is evil.

Therefore having and not having arise together.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short contrast each other:
High and low rest upon each other;
Voice and sound harmonize each other;
Front and back follow one another.

Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing, teaching no-talking.
The ten thousand things rise and fall without cease,
Creating, yet not possessing.
Working, yet not taking credit.
Work is done, then forgotten.
Therefore it lasts forever."

Tao Te Ching ~ chapter 2




Hi, i'm ~shrtkv, a senior interaction designer @ south america, over a decade working at disciplines from the UXd field as information architecture, user interface and front-page dev ; prototyping, research and user testing; and also some strategic projects of business and service design. My lab you can find lots of electronic components, wires, arduino & other microcontroller, pens & pencils, circuit chaos and unfinished interactive AV experiments and ideas on Max/MSP/Jitter, processing and pureData...and plants. A lot of them.
