Statement > The grey-everyday seduces through conformity and standardization. Our malleability through habit, ritual and tradition confirms that we are simply pattern processing machines, born out of pattern and destined to live out our lives as pattern. Familiarity and pattern give meaning to life, cushioning our inherent time-dependency and allowing us to deal with the “urgency of life”. We expect repeatability and consume consistency. Confirmation through repeatability qualifies our endeavours – pattern is control and safety; it is titanic, ubiquitous and blind. Pattern gives continuity without consideration – it simply is. read full statement
