Citações Piet Hein

„But we are in a straitjacket, having to accept one or the other, when often some intermediate form would be better.“

Context: Man is the animal that draws lines which he himself then stumbles over. In the whole pattern of civilization there have been two tendencies, one toward straight lines and rectangular patterns and one toward circular lines. There are reasons, mechanical and psychological, for both tendencies. Things made with straight lines fit well together and save space. And we can move easily — physically or mentally — around things made with round lines. But we are in a straitjacket, having to accept one or the other, when often some intermediate form would be better. As quoted in Scandinavian Review (2003), by the American-Scandinavian Foundation, p. 18

„Art is the creative process and it goes through all fields.“

—  Piet Hein
Context: After all, what is art? Art is the creative process and it goes through all fields. Einstein’s theory of relativity — now that is a work of art! Einstein was more of an artist in physics than on his violin. Art is this: art is the solution of a problem which cannot be expressed explicitly until it is solved. As quoted in Man Creates Art Creates Man (1973) by Duane Preble, p. 14 Variant translation: Art is solving problems that cannot be formulated before they have been solved. The shaping of the question is part of the answer. As quoted in Architecture: form, space, and order (2007) by Francis D.K. Ching, p. ix
