The collaborative book The first time forever, is a mutual work based on the Conditional Design Manifesto that states that the process is rather important than the product himself.
As a photographer, designer or musician, we do the same things everyday. The way we see, do or think is our own. That’s what makes us who we are. But on the other hand, in our practice, we also need to constantly do things differently. Experiment. Evolve. It’s a kind of paradox. We do the same things every day but we also do them differently every day. Like a quest for something being new every time you do it. Waking up in the morning doing the same thing differently. Doing it for the first time, forever.
