"The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture, and a highly creative feverishness.  It is not like a drug; it is a particular state when everything happens very quickly, a mixture of consciousness and unconsciousness, of fear and pleasure; it's a little like making love, the physical act of love."

THE MANIPULATED EDGE

AT MASHA HUPALO

"One of the most striking modern examples of a manipulated edge —a Wild edge made innocuous— is the, now completely paved, Los Angeles River. Previously the River used to breach its banks seasonally, cutting a meandering and devastating path through the burgeoning city. Now, it has succumbed to a paranoid fear of the unbounded edge, an edge previously beyond the efficacy of commerce and domesticity. It has become an emblem of an alienating and post human industrialised landscape, little more than a seam cut through the city. If the taming of this unruly phenomenon exists (for the time being) as a marker for civic triumph (and possibly as a battle won against the formless), it also stands as a hubristic symbol of our collective desire to suppress the entropic, the boundary that must be held to its terms if we are to get on With our lives."

"There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans."

Jane Jacobs

"If in New York City we had refrained from building so many miles of subways at twenty million dollars a mile and had put some of this money into rehabilitating and making livable and attractive the older and central parts of town, millions of people would not today be crowded like cattle into hurtling trains during the rush hours."
