It is a place where all relevance to creativity, using one's hands to make something has been replaced by using one's digits exclusively for digital means,  digitally , in an agentic state.  There are a few who (re)discovered human creative capacity as it had once evolved.  A few unearthed damaged and time-weathered patterns.  A few followed a legacy that continued knitting, but interruptions, oppression and secrecy compromised its translation.  Materials scarce, colours limited, faded, tired-vibrant and inconsistent contribute and determine design.     BEAUTIFUL DINGE is motivated by the unrelenting human need to create, to answer to, to heal, to fix, to reconcile, to understand, to transform, to communicate, to find originality,  to define one's originality , to find peace  with  the discomfort of limitations, to find freedom, expanding within restrictions.  image | @rvdwcreative
