If you've been subject to one of my design lectures (or bar stool rambles) you're probably familiar with the notion of non-design; how both physical and virtual interfaces can facilitate communication in a way so effective that the designer's hand (and ego) is all but nonexistent. Not to be confused with minimalism, the notion of non-design invites invention, whimsy and even absurdism in its goal of connecting people with ideas on intellectual, emotional, sensory and sometimes spiritual levels. In this philosophy, form is a direct product of content.

I recently came across the work of Janet Zweig, who's intellectually provocative sculptures are some of the best examples of this idea seen to date. Amazing stuff. Make sure to read the descriptions.
