I found this corner in one of the backyards of (Vilniaus) Žygimantų str. Somehow it resembles me the complexity of academic language. It is well and logical explained by it’s own terms. If it would be possible to observe it (the world of science) from the outside it should be quite funny (and awkward of course). Something like that: http://ift.tt/1s3fv8q
I found this walkthrough in one of the yards of Tauras beer factory and I couldn’t think of any reasonable explanation why it has to be so complex.

"Artists who need ongoing reassurance that they’re on the right track routinely seek out challenges that offer the clear goals and measurable feedback - which is to say, technical challenges. The underlying problem with this is not that the pursuit of technical excellence is wrong, exactly, but simply making it the primary goal puts the cart before the horse. To the viewer, who has little emotional investment in how the work gets done, art made primarily to display technical virtuosity is often beautiful, striking, elegant and vacant. Compared to other challenges, the ultimate shortcoming of technical problems is not that they’re hard, but that they’re easy. It’s easier to paint in the angel’s feet to another’s masterwork than to discover where the angels live within yourself." D Bayles in "Art &Fear"
The content of form is interesting and meaningful, if it links with the content itself. I find it hard to remember some craft and technics for a longer time. Also it ages and is replaced. I know there are people who admire numbers. I’d say it’s an instrument, a tool, I use it to measure other objects. Maybe it’s my fault. I agree, there’s some beauty in numerology, an interpretive play with it;’s functions, although I’d say it’s not related to what numbers were made for. Or is it..
"Knygelėje apie netobulumą Greimas kelis kartus cituoja Baudelaire’ą. Prisiminkime, ką šis yra sakęs apie idealą. Idealas yra nykus, vienpusis, tai, kas įgauna jo bruožus, sustingsta; iš idealo negalima reikalauti ko nors daugiau negu jis yra. Idealas turėtų būti savimi patenkintas, laimingas ir gražus, savo tobulumu tarsi stabdantis laiką."

"The character is at home when he is at ease in the rhetoric of the people with whom he shares life. The sign of being at home is the ability to make oneself understood without too much difficulty, and to follow the reasoning of others without any need for long explanations." From Marc Augé’s "Non-places", where he cites Vincent Descombes
It’s not that there’s something new, but I was thinking.. home is an institution, where you speak the language everyone (or anyone other than yourself) understands. Home is a place where the reasoning is the most secure. Home is the easiest place for your ego.
