As engineers we know that musicians take the product of our labours and then inveigle our souls, the pulse stream of all our beings. Artists take the product of our labours and then command us to gaze, to talk, to object.
Do we see the manifestations of our labours as a veneer that hides the complexity, the reality of our world from the user?
We are the masters of time, we are the masters of order, the arrangers of sequence - where and who are the engineers that can articulate the brilliance, the complexity of our world in a form that evokes the enduring interest, the passion and the commitment of others?
