Most of us love simplicity, but ironically, most of us hate doing what it takes to produce it. A 2-hr movie is powered by HUNDREDS of work hours. A house is more than just a set of walls; it is a network of structural supports, wiring, and plumbing. A user-intuitive smartphone is a dazzling array of carefully engineered considerations. It is only by plunging into the depths of complexity that we can surf its waves, then—through skill and audacity—return once more to the shores of simplicity.
