Wes Anderson is generally considered as a modern directorial genius who is able to compose immaculate shots true to the tone and message of his stories. His style is solid and consistent but far from being flat, boring and lazy. He explores new techniques in each film that he does and tries to continually add new weapons in the artistic and story-telling battle he designed.

Religion is a giant force of influence to civilization. It seeps through every part of our lives, whether we like it or not, and whether or not we are believers.

There has always been this saying that ‘nature is the best designer’ and that ‘to see what goes together well, simply look at nature.’ To me, this is completely true, not simply in a personal aesthetic fashion, but also in a practical way. If we were to look at Design and Aesthetics from a Darwinian perspective, Aesthetics and Pragmatics are the paramount to the survival of a species, thus leaving nature beautiful and useful. But that might be too overreaching.

Designers see things at a different level. We see things from a fresh set of eyes. One challenge for us designers is how to continually practice, improve (or strengthen!) that special ability of ours. This activity answers to exactly that. This activity is a simple exercise to help designers see things in objects other people cannot see.
