85532 - Beyond Haikus

N. Lygeros

Haikus are not only a traditional way
to communicate a concise thought.
With the haiku
you can show
that you can adapt your mind
in another model
in order to get a new result
which was unthinkable before
because this kind of structure was unknown.
In reality, we can say the same
for Hua Tou and Koans
which can be even more complex
because they are living
in the field of philosophy.
And there,
we can reach deeper notions.
That’ s why those structures are precious
when you want to leave a trace
and to show  in a compact way
the meaning of your work.
They are open structures
and you can fill them
with your own mind
to prove how innovative it is.
