pareidolia

pareidolia: noun

par·​ei·​do·​lia | \ ˌper-ˌī-ˈdō-lē-ə, -ˈdōl-yə\
: the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern The scientific explanation for some people is pareidolia, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness. Think of the Rorschach inkblot test.— Pamela Ferdinand
Pareidolia means seeing something meaningful in something random–but I usually think of it as seeing a face in something that isn’t a face. I’m sure there are other patterns you could see that would be pareidolia.
One I often see is the belligerent octopus:
coat hook that looks like an octopus making 2 fists to show the concept of pareidolia
Stacie Bee–“Drunk octopus wants to fight you”

Design Statement

A design statement is an analysis of a project’s structure. In order to make a design statement,  you must explain the analysis of the project’s context, summarize the key components of the planning context, and identify the primary opportunities and constraints identified from the analysis provided. There is no real definitive format for a design statement but most businesses require one in standard essay format. The audience that a designer statement is intended for is the viewer and the public. A designer statement is used to help the audience have a better understanding of the designers piece of work and the designers purpose/process . 

 

Sources “What is a Designer Statement” by Vadmin Gershman . In this article he emailed 30 designers asking them “what is a designer statement and how do you write one”? Designer Justin M Smith stated “some artists believe designer statement is unnecessary and or misleading…” “to me many designer /artist statements are a poor excuse to explain art/design to the public who will in the end have their own opinions on the origin,methods and overall worth of the final project”.

Designer Christopher Baker stated “whether it’s called an artist statement. Research statement or designer statement. I think the ultimate goal is the same ; to help others understand what motivates you”
