Bruce Mau

This video of Canadian author and designer, Bruce Mau being interviewed by Bill Moyers was recorded in 2004. Mau addresses the three issues of our blog: design, sustainability and culture. It is about 15 minutes long.

Mau helps to focus on the fundamental idea that we produce our world. We do it through the intent of our design (work), how we care for the environment and each other, and how we come together through our heightened ability to share information. Mau comes at it from a prospective of intelligent compassion. He is not flowery. He is quietly inspiring. We recommend it to kick start your day, clarify the imperatives.

When you get done with the video, Bruce Mau Design Manifesto is pretty juicy, too.
