Zen and the Art of IA

Book review on ‘Designing the Obvious‘ (Hoekman 2006) – “Zen is the art of practicing meditation in everything you do and existing solely in a mental space. Envisioning surroundings as full of peace creates an image of actions as poetry. If information architecture is poetry, it gives just meaning, placement, and timing to an overall message or theme. The flow of numbers, letters, images and sounds together form a medium for the mind, a zen space of constant understanding.” (Clifton Evans – Boxes and Arrows)
