Sean Ryan replied to nca's discussion 'What's your 'design process?'' in the group DESIGN
"How much time is available for the task at hand seems to lead to a sliding scale of what approach to take. Sometimes you have minutes to produce something, sometimes years. There seems to be some underlying framework...have, want, get (?) or…"

Other Crafts/ Interests
I have a great interest in the Earth-Space Sciences, Paleontology, Art…Sociology, Philosophy, Human Ecology, Information - Memes and Landscape Theory.

Also, I really enjoy physically exploring all kinds of Landscapes, both Natural and Industrial.

Likewise, curious on the theory, philosophy and ideas related to finding the ultimate answers about the true Human - Nature relationship.
And from a lifetime of thought on the question, feel there are many logical conclusions that can be drawn, but somehow society has a difficult time accepting. Compounding the issues more, with the onset of technology in this century (Robotics, Genetics, Nanotechnology, etc.) it seems like a radical confrontation of what it means to be human and clearly define our relationship with nature are inevitable. I'm always surprised there is not more discourse and LAs are not leading the way. Who better than an LA would truly understand man’s relationship to nature?
Searching towards these ends, I'm open and curious to any conversation, discussion or exploration, no matter how abstract or difficult.
Think landscape architeture is a fasinating subject. Have fun building parks.
